Overview

From the creators of Chocolate Bar, New York City’s candy store for grown-ups, comes Chocolate Bar—a delicious ode to the sweet that entrances so many, with more than 30 recipes from such stellar chocolatiers as Jacques Torres and Andrew Shotts. These range from classic cookies, brownies, and retro desserts to such renegade treats as White Chocolate Lemon Cream, Spiced Meatballs. . . even a chocolate body scrub! Co-founders Lewis and Nelson espouse a stylish philosophy of fun and enjoyment, with the focus on baking, drinking, dining, and entertaining with chocolate. They also explain how to “educate” one’s chocolate palate by exploring products with various cacao percentages, origins, textures, aromas, and tastes. Readers will learn how to throw a chocolate tasting party, a swank chocolate martini soiree, a ski lodge get-together complete with chocolate fondue and hot toddies, or a celebration of childhood choco-centric memories, with the emphasis on sundaes, fudges, ice creams, and other nostalgic indulgences. Using Chocolate Bar’s own unique entertaining and party ideas, they explain why chocolate is appropriate—indeed, necessary—for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

    The BEST recipes EVER!

    I bought this book because it looked very kitschy and interesting. Loved the pic on the front cover. After opening it, and seeing it up close for myself, I just cannot bring myself to put it away. The photographs are incredible, (the chocolate fudge layer cake, on pg. 50, looked so incredibly delicious in the picture, that I just HAD to make it first. It turned out as good as it looked!) The recipes are ones that the everyday mom, (like me), can whip up in the kitchen. They are simple enough, yet have a fun and twisty spin on chocolate. I even love the chocolate body scrub recipe at the back of the book. I've made that for birthday gifts, and it is always a hit! It is such an interesting book that has so much more than recipes. It has personality! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book! I will keep this next to my Joy of Cooking and Better Homes and Gardens, forever!

    I love this book!

    Fabulously irreverant! I truly enjoyed the authors blend of retro-reconfigured recipes with racy lifestyle aesthetics. A top-notch syle guide from the winner of TimeOut New York's 2004 Eat Out Award for 'Best Chocolate Store'.
