"More Than Just a Coffee Table Book - Even though it was originally published in French as the Encyclopédie du Chocolat, it should not be confused with the dry, dusty encyclopedias of days gone by. It is the definitive go-to book for everything chocolate. I'm sure that just about every chocolate technique is covered in this book as well as several supporting techniques on the included DVD. The recipe section contains a wide variety of chocolate treats, which includes everyday chocolate recipes to more advanced recipes."

Great for reading about chocolate techniques... 1. Dezember 2011
Von Kat - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed reading the individual blurbs from each chef, and the introduction to the book has more detail about the actual process of cooking with chocolate than I have found elsewhere. However, I wasn't blown away by the recipes; some are incredible, some are fairly poorly written (the ingredient list and/or instructions). In at least two instances that I have noticed, the ingredient list doesn't actually give an amount or weight (e.g. it just says, milk & chocolate), and the instructions do not further elucidate the proportions necessary to achieve the final product. In another case, one ingredient is called for within two different sections of the instructions, while another ingredient is left out of the process. It may just be a translation error, or a printing error, but still... There are also some recipes where detail is lacking: "heat for a while, then blah blah blah". The photography is gorgeous, and I want to eat everything in this cookbook, but it's a pretty pricey cookbook for so many errors, especially when pastry is a field where precise measurements matter.

cooking with chocolate 16. Dezember 2011
Von eliane - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I think this book is really great. First of all, lets start with the fact that is was written so anyone could understand the techniques, which if you are working with chocolate and are an amateur, a big deal. Second of all, the book is divided into techniques section and then recipes. Each chef that collaborated on the book had their own recipe section so there are a lot of variations. The technique section was divided into:
chocolate- tempering, molds and coating basics
bonbon fillings
decorations- all types of pretty little ideas plus glazes
pastry doughs and sponges
creamy textures- basic cremeux, pastry cream etc
ice creams, sorbets and sauces
mastering further techniques- like using a piping bag etc..
there is also a little section on the process of how chocolate is made.
every page in the technique section has AT LEAST one picture, many times more than one step is shown and they are beautiful pictures.
the recipe section at first glance looks complicated but reading them through I realized that if you take your time going through the techniques section, there are some variations but every technique has already been shown to you. so I am very excited.
If you are going to buy one book on chocolate, this should be it. It really eases you into it but doesnt withhold information simply because you may not be a trained pastry chef.

Chocolate Heaven 9. November 2011
Von Kris Barlow - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Reading this book is better than reading most novels. Wow. Beautiful photos and that make me want to try every recipe. The instructions are clear and the ingredients are common. There are a few fun new tools to find, but that is part of expanding my knowledge and kitchen tools like stainless steel rulers which hold up what I would describe as a long, thin chocolate ganache tart. Very clever and not hard to do. The recipes I've tried are exquisite and I can't want to cook the entire much to learn and wonderful chocolaty foods to enjoy. This book is a masterpiece.

Clear guide, great recipes 14. Januar 2012
Von ab - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book covers all the fundamental chocolate techniques in detail with a variety of basic recipes to demonstrate the point and to showcase some variations. It then dedicates over 1/2 of the book to creations that incorporate many of these fundamental techniques. For beginner and expert alike, there is great content in this book.

I would also say that, unlike some other chocolate books, this book is well suited for the candy-hating chocoholic who loves the flavor and richness of chocolate but does not like particularly sweet food.

Missing steps 24. Februar 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The DVD is nice, and wordlessly taught me a fair amount. The recipes in the book, however, are frequently missing steps or measurements. I am not sure how one is supposed to duplicate such precise recipes without those things.
