Product description


This is the book every chocophile has been waiting for. David Lebovitzs guide is a jam-packed snapshot of the global chocolate picture. He explains the process of chocolate making, runs through chocolate terminology and types, presents information on health benefits, and shares tons of little-known factoids about chocolate. Included are more than 30 of his favourite chocolate recipes.

About the Author

DAVID LEBOVITZ has been a professional cook and baker for most of his life; he spent nearly thirteen years at Chez Panisse until he left the restaurant business in 1999 to write books. He moved to Paris in 2004 and turned into a phenomenally popular blog. He is the author of six books, including The Perfect Scoop, Ready for Dessert, The Great Book of Chocolate, and a memoir called The Sweet Life in Paris, and he was named one of the Top Five Pastry Chefs in the Bay Area by the San Francisco Chronicle. David has also been featured in Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Cook's Illustrated, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, Saveur, Travel + Leisure, and more.
