Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As a die hard chocolate lover, everything about this book instantly appealed to me. What's not to love?

The whole book has a look of decadence about it. It's full of dark, interesting pictures and bold pinks and black accents. The pictures tend to be full page and while there's a lot, there isn't quite a picture for every recipe which I would always prefer.

The recipes are clearly laid out with ingredients at the side (in grams and milliliters) and an easy set of numbered instructions to follow. There's a little bit of chat before each recipe but not a lot of fluff in the recipe itself - much easier to read and use. And, thank goodness, there's not even a sniff of calorie or nutritional info!

The recipes are split into seven sections. These are: chocolatey basics, breakfast and brunch, teatime or anytime, treats, feeding friends, special days and holidays, and finally chocolate extremists. There are also some handy lessons and hints including how to temper chocolate.

Despite my high expectations, I only gave this book three stars. The main reason for this is that the book wasn't quite what I expected. That's not necessarily a criticism but I did expect to open it and find a cornucopia of chocolate heaven. Instead there are a whole range of recipes that all include some sort of chocolate. That includes savoury recipes such as rabbit ragu and whole cooked chicken in a cocoa crust through to slightly more unusual chocolate treats such white chocolate and wasabi truffles and chocolate, cardamom and clementine marbled roulade. Of course, there are many of the things you would expect, too, such as rocky road, chocolate muffins, chocolate cookies and birthday cake.

Only giving this book three stars doesn't mean that I didn't like it - I just think that perhaps it's more for the high-brow chocolatier. I think I'm a bit more milk-chocolate when the person that would love this book needs to be high quality 70% cocoa solids chocolate.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Choc full of fantastic recipes for chocolate lovers. This hardback book is beautifully presented, scattered with pictures of chocolate filled delights and easy to follow recipes.

The book is divided into 7 main areas...

'Chocolate basics' includes chocolate delights such as Chantilly cream, sauces, ganache, and sweet crust pastries

'Breakfast & brunch' recipes include muffins, Churros, Waffles, Floating Islands, cookies, and tarts

'Teatime or Anytime' includes Eclairs, Cupcakes, Brownies, Cakes, Tiffins, and Cheesecakes

'Treats' recipes include Mousse, Truffles, Madeleines, Rice Pudding, Milkshakes, and Flapjacks

'Feeding Friends' includes Chocolate soup, Crème Brulee, Fondants, Tarts, Trifles, Parfaits, and Martinis. This section extends through to main meals such as Rabbit Ragu, Gu-Lash, Chocolate Venison Raviole, and Pork Mole

'Special Days & Holidays' begins with Cheesecakes, Fondue, Profiteroles, and Cakes through to Monkfish, Blinis, Duck on Polenta, and Scallops

'Chocolate Extremists' can learn to temper chocolate, and create bubble wrap effects. In addition recipes include Millefeuille, Macaroons, Chocolate stuffed crust pizza, Chocolate and Bacon Croque Monsieur, and Chicken in a cocoa crust.

The recipes are original, exciting, and extremely delicious. Fantastic for entertaining friends with unique culinary delights. A must have for any chocolate lover or for those who enjoy cooking with a twist.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A wonderful chocolate cookery book, full of every sort of chocolate dessert recipe you could ever need. Luxurious desserts and a few main course dishes like pan fried duck on polenta with a chocolate orange sauce. As the book is the GU chocolate cookbook it is heavy on the GU style very rich chocolate pudding. Not for eating every day, but wonderful for an indulgent special occasion treat. These are all full fat, full cream indulgent recipes - not for anyone on a diet.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Hardback book with attractive photos of most of the recipes, though by no means all. A mixture of staples such as brownies, cookies, souffles and mousses, plus some more original treats such as coconut snowball profiteroles, chocolate rice pudding and white chocolate and wasabi truffles. Also a number of savoury offerings are to be found, including rabbit, duck, scallops and monkfish, all served with chocolate sauce or dressing. Quirkier offerings such as chocolate bubblewrap, chocolate blinis and chocolate-filled eggshells amuse, as do the corny recipes names (Tiramagu, anyone?).

Helpful info on tempering chocolate and making curls, syrups and custards is included, plus a nod to the chefs who created the recipes. Absolutely nothing wrong with this book, but I just think I found Paul A Young's Adventures in Chocolate that little bit more inspiring...

I borrowed this book from a friend to make some delicious treat to wow my work colleagues. I picked a recipe which sounded impressive "financiers" and began making. It was much easier than I had thought with clear instructions of what to do - the picture even looked like my finished versions even though I am not a pro. Will definitly be trying some more recipes.
