Book Description

Review 'More Than Just a Coffee Table Book - Even though it was originally published in French as the Encyclop?die du Chocolat, it should not be confused with the dry, dusty encyclopedias of days gone by. It is the definitive go-to book for everything chocolate. I'm sure that just about every chocolate technique is covered in this book as well as several supporting techniques on the included DVD. The recipe section contains a wide variety of chocolate treats, which includes everyday chocolate recipes to more advanced recipes.'
