In my opinion, every single recipe in a cook book should have a picture, especially when the topic is Deep, Dark Chocolate. Come on! I don't look at porn. Instead I choose to look lustily at pictures of food. So, it hurts by heart when a book like this, with so much potential to cause pleasure-induced moaning and all-encompassing thoughts, only semi-encompassed my thoughts because of a lack of pictures. That is not to say that the pictures that are included are not pictures that I lay dreaming a ...more

It was Ok. Sounded yummy, but I can't cook or eat that way any more.

A good primer to baking with chocolate. But disappointing that the "deep dark" chocolate of the recipes was merely weak 72% or less--and then the recipes contain sugar, besides. The author explained this was due to the chemical reactions induced in the baking process, which I get--and properly baked products probably need all that sugar, too, for other important chemical reactions to take place. But I'll just eat my 85%+ dark chocolate and skip all the fuss and sweetness, thank you very much.

The good:

1. An overview for baking beginners and an introduction to grades and types of chocolate.
2. Variety of recipes, ranging from baked goods to frozen desserts to drinks.
3. Credits provided when others inspired particular recipes.

The bad:

1. The formatting was off for some sections where every word was capitalized. It was annoying when reading those sections.
2. Macarons were referred to as macaroons. I don't know if that's an editorial error it the author really doesn't know the difference.

Wow. Ok. The combinations in this book are unique. From Spanish peanuts to red wine raisins, this book never fails to lead us to new heights. It also has a recipe for sprinkles. A RECIPE FOR SPRINKLES.
What I liked about this book is that if you are a beginner in baking it explains why things should be done and it explains the different grades of chocolate. There looks to be some really great recipes, a bunch that I look forward to trying out.

I think I gained 20 pounds just looking at the recipes....there is some helpful info for working with chocolate and while there are some pretty standard recipes there are some with a new twist. There are quite a few I will be trying out

I was bored by the lack of variety of recipes here. There were limited flavor profiles besides chocolate on chocolate and mocha.
