Encourages one to experiment with flavours
on 11 January 2010
I treated myself to this book recently, having previously bought one of Andrew Garrison Shotts' books on chocolate making. In my opinion, Paul Young's recipes are less fussy and demanding of Shotts' (many of which require cocoa butter and his own special pectin etc.). So far, I've only made salted pecan praline truffles and muscovado truffles but these went down a treat as Christmas presents. What I like most about this book is that Young has managed to convey his boundless enthusiasm for chocolate making and, whilst he does a super job of conveying the essential techniques, he does an even better job of encouraging the reader to experiment with flavours and textures on their own Chocolate Adventures.
