Review

Buy this book as a present for a chocoholic friend to drool over the delicious recipes and photographs - or buy it yourself and give delicious homemade chocolates this Christmas. (WE LOVE THIS BOOK)

How Roald would have loved this book - it is truly a masterpiece (Felicity Dahl)

This book is indeed beautiful; however, it is much more than that. It is one of the most candid insights into the life and business history of an entrepreneur and industry pioneer, coupled with a selection of brilliant recipes written in plain English. (Heather McGregor, a.k.a. Mrs Moneypenny)

A glamorously packaged book that distils the wisdom of one of Britain's chocolate pioneers.. Her clear instructions mean they are well within the capabilities of the average cook. (SUNDAY TIMES STYLE)

This plush book intends to reveal the secret to successful chocolate making. With techniques, tips and 80 recipes, you can make all things chocolate - from truffles and biscuits to ice creams and sauces. (CHOICE)

Motcomb St chocolatier Chantal Coady has written a cookery book that is sure to appeal to those with a sweet tooth. (BELGRAVIA)

If you want to give a chocolate-loving friend a very special present you couldn't do better" (Jane Shilling DAILY MAIL)

The book is a gorgeous object, with padded blue and white covers and fuchsia-pink page edges, all presented in a wooden box in Rococo livery. (Aileen Reid SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

This Christmas, we'll be self-gifting the lush, ribbon-adorned Rococo" (IN STYLE)

A new book by Coady is worth paying attention to - and this one is beautiful. (TELEGRAPH MAGAZINE)

I commend it to every other husband looking to assemble a "thoughtful stocking" (Mrs Moneypenny FT MAGAZINE)

(A) beautiful and informative book...From truffles to slabs, and tarts to pralines, this is a must for chocolate lovers everywhere. (WOMAN & HOME)

Format: Hardcover
I've just been given this wonderful book as a gift, lucky me! It is incredibly beautifully presented, full of evocative photographs of delicious chocolate things and each chapter page faced with lovely antique tile designs. A very comprehensive collection of recipes range from savoury chocolate biscuits to praline filled hens eggs and magnificent cakes. Some of these ideas I can realistically hope to reproduce with my kids in my ktichen at home while others will need some real skill - at the back is a useful guide to techniques written simply and clearly but in the kind of detail you need to make the truly jaw dropping effects presented. These recipes are imaginative without being gimmicky and the careful methodical approach is elevated by little details of history, family, friends and helpful notes ("don't be alarmed if the dough seems rather sticky"). I love the way Chantal Coady writes. Her total devotion to her subject comes through so warmly and sweetly - a bit like the magic stuff itself. Everyone should have this on their Christmas present list for the foody people they love. Now, off to make chocolate brioche...............

I was lucky enough to receive this book as a gift and couldn't wait to dive in. The book is beautifully presented in its own gift box and from page to page you are shown tempting shots of each recipe... and more!

The first two recipes I made were the Chocolate Salami - a 'log' of ganache with biscotti and nuts - and the chocolate brownies with the suggested addition of pecan praline... both were easy to make with clear step by step instructions and tasted fantastic! The book offers not just sweet and savoury recipes for cakes, confectionery, desserts and drinks but also techniques for melting, tempering and decorating. Suffice to say, this will be one of my 'go to' books for chocolate inspired recipes.

One of the most beautifully written and photographed recipe books I have the pleasure to own.

I bought this book after discovering the shop after moving to London - having recently discovered making chocolate as a hobby I was keen to get all the help I could get.

Chantals' book and philosphy towards chocolate is inspiring, she teaches you about why buying the right chocolate is important, about the quality of ingredients and most importantly how to "taste" chocolate.

The recipes that she has shared are easy to follow at home, and although for some of them you need specialist tools, they can easily be adapted.

There are hints and tips about how to present your chocolates, how to paint and proper molding techniques.

I have also recently bought some chocolate making tools from Rococo which allow me to make even more of the lovely recipes!

The book looks absolutely beautiful but, more than that, it is full of the most delicious recipes, with practical descriptions of techniques for working with chocolate, which are normally the province of Master Chocolatiers - and kept well-hidden from us ordinary mortals. Chantal Coady's passion for her work shines through on every page. A perfect present.

Very interesting introduction, but most importantly the recipes are great. Some easy chocolate mousse and more complex ones too. I strongly recommend the salted caramel ice cream. You ideally need an ice cream maker, but it's worth it!

Format: Hardcover
I think I can honestly say that this is the most gorgeous book I have ever seen. Its feel (the silky touch) makes for a tremendous start, then the enticing way it's quite difficult getting inside the box - it sort of plays hard to get and I love that attitude that it has! - and then one sees the lining to the box (I imagine I should call it a case and not a box) and THEN one gets to the book itself.

I can't say I have read it all yet but it is so lavishly produced. A labour of love. I love the way Chantal says that she has loved writing the book. It certainly shows!

My only complaint is that one can't actually eat it! Might that be a thought for the next production - an edible book?

But, of course, being a book means it will be there, time and time again, to admire, to relish, to enjoy and to simply just look at and sigh at its beauty. It's not just a book; it is a magnificent work of art.

Well done indeed. A true triumph of a tome and I am so grateful to have a copy.

Hugh Williams
