Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Cooking instructor Donovan gives chocolate lovers a recipe for every day of the year in this latest title in the 365 series. Divided into six chapters, on, e.g., baking, desserts, ices, and drinks, this collection of all-chocolate recipes covers the spectrum from the simple (chocolate-dipped dried fruits) to the sublime (a chocolate cream roll with strawberries). Recipes are easy to follow, written succinctly-none has more than five steps-and suitable for both beginning and experienced cooks. Donovan presents brief introductory matter, including information on types of chocolates, ingredients, tools and techniques, and basic recipes. The rest of the book is devoted to the recipes including cheesecake, ice cream, crepes, cookies, and bars. Donovan was born in Australia and currently lives in England, and these countries are reflected in the various recipes for Lamingtons, steamed puddings, and Eton mess. Filled with eye-catching color photos, this title has a spiral binding that lays flat in the kitchen. Recommended, but not an essential purchase.-Pauline Baughman, Multnomah Cty. Lib., Portland, OR
