Product Description

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)

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!

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 the book as a gift for a friend and I was not disappointed. It is a stunning looking book - an absolutely perfect gift for someone who likes chocolate, cooking/baking, books and all things well-crafted.

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!

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!

I have another of Chantal Coady's books and this latest addition is a chocolate lovers delight. It will become another chocolate bible for me as I love the creative and innovative recipes and the pairings of flavours that Chantal uses.
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!

How William Morris would have approved - not only is this the most gorgeous book to dip into for a spot of chocolate fantasy, it also makes the highly technical world of working with chocolate accessible, thanks to clear and easy to follow explanations and instructions. So no reason not to turn fantasy into reality!
