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 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.
My friend was very pleased with it and it comes in a nice box as well. In terms of the contents, some of it is probably a little bit extravagant for the Sunday afternoon bake with the kids, but certainly worth trying a few - if you can reach far enough into your pocket for the ingredients!
There is also an insight into how Rococo began in the introduction and lots of interesting history about chocolate and how she came to be the influential and highly successful chocolate maker that she is today and has been since being one of the forerunners offering high quality chocolate to London.
I would encourage you to but this book, it will remain a treasured, well used book in my house!
