    This book is very thorough and would make an excellent addition

    This book is very thorough and would make an excellent addition to any candy maker's library. It discusses everything you wanted to know about chocolate, how to make more than just truffles, and even how to choose your color palette for your showpiece. It's more than recipes. It's an in-depth lesson in chocolate.
