Once again, Bruce Weinstein has come up with an ultimate winner, this time with brownies. His other books follow this same format: recipes, then variations. But here, the possibilities are endless, since every recipe has a list of what you can add to make it even better. He and his cowriter say that they are unabashed chocolate lovers. No wonder, because every recipe is loaded with chocolate. I waited for this book to come out, because I liked the other "ultimate" books so well. They're down-to-earth, no gimmick books--you don't have to put up with celebrity egos or foodie snobbery. In the end, there are just lots of good brownie recipes, along with blondies, frostings, and even recipes for doctoring mixes. A chocolate lover's dream, without a lot of fuss and fandango--just what a brownie should be.
