Book Description

1 Sep 2007

Today's chocolates have gone upmarket, mixing flavours such as chile peppers, caramel or wasabi with high-quality bittersweet or imported chocolate. Luckily creating such mouth-watering confections at home no longer requires a cooking degree - Making Fine Chocolates will teach you all the inside tips, techniques and methods for making chocolates like a professional chocolatier at home. Once only available to pastry chefs, the techniques shown here will help you create chocolates to rival those found in upmarket retail shops and specialist chocolate shops. Forget milk chocolate bars - the recipes in this book combine daring and unusual flavours to create truly unique creations. Using ingredients such as vanilla bean, mint and fresh raspberries, Andrew Garrison Shotts will teach you how to create one-of-a-kind homemade chocolates, truffles and confections that will dazzle your friends and family.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good place to start 10 Sep 2008
Format:Paperback
This book is perfect for people who are confident with basic kitchen skills and have a little time to invest. The recipes, processes and instructions are all clear, and produce high-quality chocolates. There's a good overview of tempering, working with chocolate, and matching chocolate and flavours.

What this book isn't is a book of shortcuts or quick fixes - and none the worse for that in my opinion, but don't buy this if you are looking to go into mass production for the school fete!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Introduction to Chocolate Making 16 Jun 2008
Format:Paperback
This book is a great introduction to chocolate making. It has a brief but concise introduction on the process of making chocolate from the bean, the components of dark, milk and white chocolates and also about pairing chocolate with wine/ beer!

I've successfully made several batches of chocolates. The instructions are clear and concise and the book covers truffles, moulded chocolates and hand dipped chocolates. However the recipes are precise, and there are no basic ganache recipes to allow you to develop your own chocolate creations. Overall though a very good starting point

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good introduction 3 May 2008
By Cloelia
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent introduction to the making of hand-made chocolates, covering the making of truffles, hand-dipped and moulded chocolates. But be aware - it is the same book as the 2007 "Making Artisan Chocolates" by the same author. If you own one book, you own them both.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for exciting chocolates 15 April 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book explaining the precise method for making truffles, filled chocolates and hand dipped chocolates, including a basic ganache filling and several very exotic recipes including Mango, Mint & Coriander (that's all in one chocolate!) and Jasmine Tea.

My only complaint is that I'd probably have liked one or two more classic fillings (i.e. peppermint cream, liquid caramel) so I could start simple. That's probably just a question of taste though, as I am not a fan of boozy, fruity or coffee chocolates, and many of the recipes in this book incorporate one or more of these elements.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Product 18 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback
I bought this book as a beginner to chocolate making but as someone who is fairly good in the kitchen. I opened it and some of the recipes looked brilliant, and the instructions were also good and clear, and helped by illustrations, However It is an American Book and has alot of American names for things, Such as 'Heavy Cream' which is not a problem if you can relate these to English names,

5.0 out of 5 stars Handle with care 26 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
Do not under any circumstances buy this bokk if you are on a diet - you will fail.

This book contains some of the best chocolates I have ever tasted and indeed some of the strangest. Getting your head around Sea Salt in chocolates takes a bit of getting used to - but it works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Making Fine Chocolates 2 Nov 2010
By Chas
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had spent ages looking for a book which made "Making Chocolates" both fun and easy. The book titled "Making
Fine Chocoltes" is an excellent book and for those who are considering making unusual, as well as the more familiar chocolates, I strongly recommend this book entitled "Making Fine Chocolates Flavour-Infused Chocolates, Truffles and Confections by Andrew Garrison Shotts"

5.0 out of 5 stars Making Fine Chocolates - and they were!! 4 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback
I first had this book on loan together with some other chocolate recipe books from the library because I wanted to make some good truffles for Christmas presents, but this books recipes were so easy to follow with plenty of pictures, that I just had to buy it. I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone novices and experienced cooks alike. The history of chocolate is interesting too. Oh and the chocolates were so good the recipients said I should go into business.
