Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“British chocolatier Paul Young, who worked with the legendary chef Marco Pierre White before opening his three London chocolate shops, is known for his experimental, bold chocolate flavor pairings. It’s those intriguing combinations that make this cookbook, his first, quite the chocolate-covered ride. The front of the book is dedicated to the hows of working with chocolate, including Young’s 10 steps to tasting chocolate, how to best use single-origin chocolates (he prefers cacao beans grown in one place rather than mass-produced blends), and his truffle-making technique. Then Young shares his recipes for everything from brownies and truffles to cocktails and a one-pot chicken dinner. Each recipe is based on his extensive tasting and testing of single-origin chocolates in unusual flavor combinations, be it a fruity Madagascan chocolate ganache with Marmite, or a fragrant Venezuelan chocolate sandwich with bacon, butter, and Stilton. Perfect for serious chocophiles, this beautifully photographed book will have you craving cacao from page one.” - Fine Cooking
