To many of us, dessert isn’t dessert unless it’s chocolate. In this beautiful and comprehensive cookbook, chocolate is always front and center. Decades of mastery from the pastry chefs at Le Cordon Bleu, with their sure understanding of what home cooks are able to create without specialized equipment or ingredients, is collected in Chocolate Bible.
The six sections of the book are:
--Temptingly Rich Cakes, featuring recipes such as Chocolate Delight and Chocolate Raspberry Cake
--Tarts to Die For, from Crunchy Chocolate-Almond Tart to Chocolate Tart topped with Caramelized Apple
--Mouth-watering Mousses & Creams, from Irish Coffee Cream to Chocolate Fondue
--Iced Desserts & Sweet Drinks, from Chocolate Ice Cream Sundae to Chocolate Granita
--Teatime treats to share, from Brownies to Mini Chocolate Eclairs
--Delicious Mouthfuls, from Chocolate Coated Cherries to Chocolate Praline Truffles
And the almost 170 recipes are supported by 20 special double-page photographic instructional spreads on technique: the best way to do everything from prepare soufflé dishes to make and roll out pastry dough.
