5.0 out of 5 stars Every Page A Delight! 22 Jan 2011
By JEMiller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Who does not love chocolate? This book is the very celebration of one of the sweetest and most decadent treats of life- all things chocolate! I read cookbooks just like I would read a novel- cover to cover, making special notations and marking recipes to return to. This book, Intensely Chocolate, by Carole Bloom is educational, informative, comprehensive and most importantly, a mouthwatering, visual delight. If you have had the pleasure of owning any of Carole Bloom's other cookbooks (my favorite for any level of baker- The Essential Baker) you will recognize not only her tantalizing, delicious recipes but "Making a Change" suggestions for creating a whole new "take" with your own special "add-ins" or twists. Thankfully here is one author that gives us not only gives the baker consistantly accurrate measurements and methods, but sources for ingredients & equipment and storage instructions as well.

I am not always successful with using chocolate as the staring ingredient, but Carole Bloom's book has given me the confidance to become successful- My favorites include: semisweet chocolate truffle tart, milk-chocolate toasted pecan tartlets, and bittersweet chocolate-salted caramel truffles.

Every woman I know loves some form of chocolate and this book gives any baker or chocolate lover the open door to enjoy, indulge and share their chocolate passion with those around us fortunate enough to share these wonderful receipes. I have given this book as a gift to several co-workers and friends- not just for Valentines Day any woman would love to add this delicious book to her working cookbook collection. Here's to more chocolate!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intensely Chocolate is Irresistible 7 Feb 2011
By Dee Long - Published on Amazon.com
I can resist anything but chocolate and this tempting tome from confectioner and chef Carole Bloom is for the true chocolate afficionado.

Recipes are very detailed and on the professional level, so this is not a cookbook for the chocolate fancier who wants a 1-2-3 easy dessert. These are serious, heavy duty chocolate recipes that call for ingredients with specific cocao content or such specialty ingredients as cacao nibs, Dutch processed cocoa powder and chocolate extract.

Every recipe offered by Bloom is a sweet chocolate dream, lovingly illustrated with plenty of preparation and storage tips included to allow every chocolate creation to be an impressive masterpiece.
