This is without question my favorite cookbook. It has recipies for chocolate deserts of almost every occasion. I have made about half of all the recipies and everyone has been a hit. It also has directions about how to make all the fancy decorations that make the presentation just as great as the food. The directions are pretty much idiot proof so those of us who are not chefs can fool our friends. This also is a must for any single guy looking to impress a woman with food!! The pictures give you great decorating ideas to finish off your masterpiece.
