Description: For chocolate lovers, here is the ultimate feast for the senses. Through irresistible recipes, evocative text, and perhaps the most beautiful photographs of chocolate ever created, The International Chocolate Cookbook captures, like no other volume, the universal allure of the world's most unforgettable food. It gathers together all-time favorite chocolate creations, from magnificent Black Forest Cherry Cake, to lush, sinful Viennese Truffle Tone, to Brownie Pie a la Mode topped with rich hot fudge sauce. It showcases the whole range of international chocolate specialties, from French mousse and British toffee to American DevU's Food Layer Cake and a "snow-capped" Swiss chocolate chalet.
The guide for this international chocolate tour is Nancy Baggett, whose previous work, The International Cookie Cookbook, won raves from cooks and critics alike. Once again, the authors experience and love of subject are evident as she brings both the finest chocolate recipes and a sense of the countries that created them to these pages. Many of the recipes are introduced with bits of lore, background information, and cultural details gleaned from the several years that the author lived in Europe and researched its food.
Recipes have been carefully selected and meticulously tested; directions are clear, explicit, and reassuring. The book also contains an introductory chapter on the history and mystique of chocolate, plus a thorough how-to-chapter on techniques, ingredients, and supplies.
