Notes about this book

  • Shelmar on October 07, 2021

    "The Cook's guide to chocolate" (2000) was republished as "The Complete Book of Chocolate and 200 chocolate recipes" (2011), according to Joanna Lorenz of Anness Press, which owns Hermes House."They are the same book (albeit different editions, hence the [identical] isbns) so one [EatYourBooks] index will work for both." Also linked are: Chocolate Bible; Chocolate: Cooking with the World's Best Ingredient; The Cook's Encyclopedia of Chocolate; The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Chocolate.

    A decent history of chocolate by McFadden, followed by recipes by France. But for one McFadden turkey mole poblano, the recipes are sweet, not savory. France's recipes have very good photographs of technique steps. For those on the left side of the pond, be aware that many of the English ingredients might not be available at your local supermarket.

Publishers Text

Indulge yourself with this sumptuous collection of all things chocolate. This book opens with an introduction that includes historical facts and anecdotes as well as a comprehensive look at the chocolate-making countries around the world, from Belgium and Germany to Britain and the US. Step-by-step techniques show you how to temper, melt, drizzle, pipe, marble, curl, scroll, coat, grate and decorate with chocolate. Then follow more than 200 chocolate recipes for teatime treats, cakes, desserts, tarts, ices and sauces. Make a sophisticated French chocolate cake or a light chocolate chip and banana pudding, or scrumptious chocolate drinks such as Mexican hot chocolate and white hot chocolate. There are even entries for low-fat versions of classic recipes, such as low-fat brownies, along with many cook's tips and variations. This title has everything you ever wanted to know about chocolate, including why we crave it, its therapeutic qualities, and most importantly, how to recognize the best there is.
