Description: The presentation of chocolate has rarely been equal to its rich, sensuous taste. These desserts, however, bedazzle the eye as they beguile the palate. Author Robert Lambert shares his secrets for dozens of spectacularly innovative chocolate fantasies, including sophisticated poached pears with gilded chocolate leaves, a whimsical chocolate sandwich cookie packed with chocolate-mint ice cream, sumptuous chocolate crepes bursting with flambeed fresh oranges, and a festive genoise festooned with pastel chocolate ribbons. Anecdotes and commentary explain how and why each dessert was created, from the lavish corporate fete for hundreds to a sit-down dinner for the cast of "Dynasty." The clearly written recipes and the instructions for exotic presentations allow you to proceed with confidence and enjoy these desserts with your own celebrations—be they extravagant parties or intimate repasts. 

With gorgeous color photographs for each dessert, this stunning cookbook will enchant chocolate lovers and all who appreciate an unforgettable finale to a special meal.
