Description

Chocolate

Finally, chocolate gets the lavish treatment it deserves. In the sophisticated style that distinguished its best-selling predecessors, Espresso and Champagne, Chocolate is a richly illustrated celebration of life's most seductive treat. Whether you prefer the simple comfort of Hershey's cocoa or a decadent dark chocolate souffle you will delight in this delicious volume. Over twenty recipes for luscious confections and surprising savories, including warm chocolate risotto and white chocolate lime tart, are paired with evocative images to create a gorgeous feast for the eyes. A history of chocolate and how it is made, complete with anecdotal facts such as how the Tootsie Roll was named; literary excerpts from the work of M.F.K. Fisher, Roald Dahl, and others; and a clever glossary make Chocolate an elegant and unique homage to "the food of the gods."
