This collectable book offers a visual treat and approximately 60 recipes for chocolate desserts, cakes and pastries. It constitutes a delightful gift and is much more than just a recipe book with its fantastic photography, each image being composed like a painting offering a beautiful dessert at its centre. It is truly mouthwatering! The recipes are accompanied by a short note from the author detailing a personal anecdote, professional tips for any delicate moments in preparation, recommendations for wine or other beverages with which to enjoy each dish, plus other accompaniments and the best time of year to serve. Each chapter focuses on a particular deadly sin and is associated with a particular colour Sloth (chocolate brown), Anger (fiery red), Lust (deep pink), Pride (deep purple), Envy (green), Avarice (black and grey), and Gluttony (orange). Sample recipes in this book include: Chocolate Pancake Mix, Creme Brulee with Chocolate and Tea, Chocolate Tart with Raspberries and Nut Crumble, Chocolate Marble Cake, Chocolate St-Honore Profiteroles, Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Chip Muffins, Chocolate Gingerbread, and Truffles.

I love the photos

I actually bought this book brand new and it was a larger size and then I must have given it away. I love the photos, but unless you are actually a pastry chef, some of the recipes will be a bit difficult to master.
