“British chocolatier Paul Young, who worked with the legendary chef Marco Pierre White before opening his three London chocolate shops, is known for his experimental, bold chocolate flavor pairings. It’s those intriguing combinations that make this cookbook, his first, quite the chocolate-covered ride. The front of the book is dedicated to the hows of working with chocolate, including Young’s 10 steps to tasting chocolate, how to best use single-origin chocolates (he prefers cacao beans grown in one place rather than mass-produced blends), and his truffle-making technique. Then Young shares his recipes for everything from brownies and truffles to cocktails and a one-pot chicken dinner. Each recipe is based on his extensive tasting and testing of single-origin chocolates in unusual flavor combinations, be it a fruity Madagascan chocolate ganache with Marmite, or a fragrant Venezuelan chocolate sandwich with bacon, butter, and Stilton. Perfect for serious chocophiles, this beautifully photographed book will have you craving cacao from page one.” - Fine Cooking

Cookbook Lover's Gift Guide 2011 Top Ten Pick,

"An inspiration." -- Nigella Lawson

"Paul has such a beautiful way of bringing simple ingredients together and making magic through his sweet delights." -- Curtis Stone


Writing this book, I set out to take you on a journey of chocolate exploration, in which you will learn to really taste and love chocolate in all its wonderful forms. You will hopefully learn how to make the perfect truffle, and learn to enjoy my experimental flavor combinations as well as come up with some of your own. If you never get beyond the first chapter, entitled "Unadulterated," which includes my own chocolatey versions of classics such as Christmas pudding and trifle, I will not be heartbroken, but if you grow to love making the green garlic truffles and other more daring recipes in the last chapter, called "Alchemy," you can rest assured that I will be very proud of you! Most importantly, however, I hope that this book will encourage you to become a genuine chocolate aficionado.  But just remember, there are times when eating chocolate has nothing at all to do with skill or identifying flavors, but is simply for pure indulgence. For me, this might mean a sea-salted caramel at coffee break, a Madagascan truffle at 2 o'clock to pick me up, and a dense nugget of my famous chocolate brownie at 4 o'clock which, for me, is by law teatime, when eating something sweet and indulgent is absolutely compulsory.

For the adventurous, includes savory chocolate ideas 22. Februar 2012
Von ThirstyBrooks - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Adventures with Chocolate will expand your horizons with new ideas for including chocolate in surprising contexts. This is NOT "The Ultimate Brownie Book." For those who want to push the envelope on innovative recipe ideas, Adventures with Chocolate is what it says on the cover: "an inspiration."

Paul Young provides a few uncommon sweet ideas, a good number that are both sweet and savory, and several ideas for chocolate with rosemary, Stilton, and ale. We have modified some of these ideas for vegetable dishes in our kitchen. I'm working my way up to the recipe for pizza that appears as an afterthought to the caramelized red onion and rosemary truffle recipe.

I rate cookbooks by the number of novel recipes in them. This book pushes the envelope to reward the adventurous. It makes a fine gift for the molecular gastronomist in your crowd, or chocoholics working to slash flour and sugar from their repertoire. I give Adventures with Chocolate five stars, but be warned they are weird stars and that Young has avoided recipes you'd expect to find in other books. If you really wanted The Ultimate Brownie Book or Nick Malgieri's Chocolate book, you could find this one uncomfortable.

More than an Adventure, an Education 30. Januar 2012
Von M. Schmidt - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
If you really want to know about chocolate, this is a must. It expands chocolate's reach way beyond desserts and explores an array of flavor profiles. And then there is the photography. I couldn't disagree more with the other reviewer- i find the photographs beautiful. The rustic metallics used through the book really complement the richness of the ingredients. A few "choco-phile" friends should anticipate this on their doorsteps this Valentines Day!

Good Source of Inspiration 11. April 2013
Von Carmen Adorno - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I bought this book from Amazon UK. The book Adventures with Chocolate was written by Paul A. Young, considered one of the top 8 masters chocolatiers in the world. The book won prize as Best Chocolate Cookbook 2010. That was why I bought it. In my opinion the book is very ugly, very poorly edited, with very small letters and the photos are not inspiring. As for the content, the first part, on identification and purchase of chocolate is quite interesting, as well as the explanation of the methods of tempering. The ideas are very inspiring, mixing red onion, green garlic, goat cheese, apple, saffron, thyme, basil, rosemary, mint, parsley and lemon grass are used to do the ganaches. However, in many recipes he uses water instead of sour cream, which makes the ganaches impossible to be rolled into truffles (I personally tested and they get too soft to handle). Maybe recipes are incomplete, missing ingredients. As a source of inspiration and new ideas for "blends" the book is good, though chocolate is a very expensive ingredient to be lost on an "uncertain" recipe.

It was delivered very swiftly, although w/out the paper cover, but since I always put the jacket away anyway, it really didn't matter. The book was "used" but seemed brand new to me! Wonderful book w great recipes. Will not be getting rid of my copy any time soon! Thank you.
The recipes are amazing with llots of very useful information. A book for novices, experts or just plain chocolate lovers!

This book is very good at inspiring a creative influence about working with chocolate in ways that you wouldn't of imagined.
I really enjoyed the recipes and the knowledge about chocolate.
