I disliked this book because it was focused on the author's 'likes & dislikes' without providing the reader with decent information. Yippee He had a good time. Yes, he gave us the old well worn chocolate/addition/decoration cake [etc.] recipes. I have this information by the shelfload. I will also admit that the information about the book pre-purchasecould have been better - a major problem when buying Kindle books - and I expected more. A lot more. How do these people get books published??
However, I shouldn't knock him - he did GET his book published!!
A bit disappointing after Leibovitz's fabulous ice cream book. The designers have chosen a strange, impractical shape - the long and thin pages are hard to keep open with the tight binding. The content is surprisingly light on recipes and long on lots of other stuff about chocolate which is in plenty of other books too.
Great book, explaining all about chocolate making proccess, different kinds of chocolate, what to choose for different recipes, where to find it, amazing recipes and pairing/serving suggestions. And of course, David Lebovitz's style in writing makes it sooo enjoyable to read :))
