I appreciate book opening with a brief history and information/background about chocolate being given. There were some facts and helpful tips I had never been told/seen/read before, so it set a nice tone for the book.

The recipes cover every shape, form, flavor and size chocolate can come in and none are too complex or intimidating to consider trying. Almost every recipe has a gorgeous photo accompanying it that just makes you want to try the recipes out even more. I like how the author also shar

This is the ABSOLUTE BEST book about chocolate (and I have several to compare to). All of the recipes are amazing. Most require minimal and simple ingredients.

This book is a winner for pastry professionals and home bakers. I highly recommend trying the Chocolate Panna Cotta. It is suburb.

Glad they told us! Once you buy one of Lori's books, you will find yourself seeking others to purchase.

The recipes are clear, well written and for those of you who like pic

The best chocolate recipes I've found in one volume. The brownies are my go-to. The cookies are rocking. Great stuff.

I've made three of the recipes in this book and they were all exquisite. I didn't use the fancy chocolate either. Hershey's works wonderfully in whatever incarnation is called for.
