This is the original chocolate cookbook by Green & Black's, that is packed with recipes to tempt, tease and torment lovers of this food of the gods. Chocolate is full of texture and taste and it can be turned into sweet and savoury, simple and sophisticated recipes. Above all, chocolate inspires many moods and so the chapters include Magic (glamorous recipes for dinner parties), Abracadabra (quick and easy recipes), Melting (light puddings and mousses that melt on your tongue), Licking the Bowl (for children and birthdays), and Wicked (those irresistible concoctions). It also includes the more traditional ideas for cakes, puddings and biscuits, and there are also more surprising recipes for soups (chocolate soup), chillies and meat (chicken mole, and Italian sweet salami). Woven into the book are stories about the history and myths of chocolate and its cultivation and production, as well as tips for handling and cooking. With recipe photographs plus location pictures of the organic cocoa plantations in Belize, "Green & Black's Chocolate Recipes" is a veritable feast for all the senses.
