Editorial Reviews

momfuse.com
The first compendium cookbook ever that is exclusively devoted to light chocolate recipes using antioxidant-rich dark chocolate and cocoa powder. All of the recipes in Enlightened Chocolate are straightforward and rely on easy-to-find ingredients. None of them will daunt, not even the chocolate soufflé with raspberry sauce or chocolate crème brulée.
Library Journal

Saulsbury is the author of half a dozen other dessert cookbooks. This one, the first in a new series, touts the antioxidant properties of chocolate, and she has used cocoa powder and dark chocolate, along with low-fat dairy products, to make desserts that are low in fat and calories (nutrition information is given for each recipe). She also includes a chapter of savory dishes made with cocoa or chocolate. Alice Medrich's Chocolate and the Art of Low-Fat Desserts(now o.p.) offers a somewhat more sophisticated approach, but Saulsbury's book, with its up-to-date information on the health benefits of chocolate, is recommended for larger baking collections.

Enlightened Chocolate: More Than 150 Decadently Light, Easy-to-Make, and Inspired Recipes Using Dark Chocolate and Unsweetened Cocoa Powder 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

What a find--this is a beautiful book with easy, sophisticated recipes. I learned so much about chocolate from the front end material 'history, health benefits, techniques', but is the recipes that are brilliant here. I've made the exotic truffles several times already 'they were the stars of my kitchen Christmas gifts' the Mexican chocolate thins are equally to-die-for, and several of the easy chocolate breakfast ideas have become standards in my morning repertoire (e..g., chocolate yogurt with fresh berries and the chocolate schmear). The savory chapter is nothing short of cutting edge. Wow. This is an essential chocolate book.
