Overview

Let your New Year’s resolution be “Eat more chocolate.” With Jacques Torres’ A Year in Chocolate as your guide, you won’t have any difficulty sticking with it from January right on through December.

 

From the elegant Poached Pears with Chocolate Fondue to serve on New Year’s Day and a festive Bûche de Noël filled with chocolate cream and ornamented with meringue mushrooms, to homemade Easter eggs and autumnal Pumpkin Seed Brittle, the world-renowned pastry chef and chocolatier presents us with a calendar’s worth of treats sure to make every celebration more luscious.

 

All the holiday classics are featured here: Valentine’s Day bonbons, a molded chocolate Easter Bunny, ice cream sundaes for the Fourth of July, and Chocolate Caramel Corn for Halloween. But for Torres’ chocolate-drenched imagination, tradition is also a springboard; among the book’s many fanciful creations are Chocolate-Covered Matzohs for the Passover seder and a Chocolate Tamale to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

 

Adapting all his recipes for the home cook, Torres showcases his favorite chocolate creations—from traditional French pastry to classic American treats. With 150 ecstasy-inducing photos of the finished dishes, A Year in Chocolate will be the chocolate cookbook of the season.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Pastry chef for more than ten years at Le Cirque, the renowned New York City restaurant, Torres now owns a chocolate factory in Brooklyn and a chocolate shop in Manhattan. His two earlier books, Dessert Circus and Dessert Circus at Home, showcased his restaurant creations and other favorite desserts. This lavishly illustrated new book presents recipes from his chocolate shop for celebrations throughout the year, from Valentine Sweethearts to a Christmas Bûche de Noël-along with many chocolate treats that aren't linked to any particular holiday. Many of them are shown in color photographs, and an introductory section covers chocolate techniques and tips. For most baking collections.

    The master chocolatier and pastry chef Jacques Torres made it possible for a novice like me to create outstanding desserts. That's where the genius comes in. Making it so simple that anyone can do it.

    This book is so well written and easy to follow. I actually had every ingredient in this book in my pantry. Every recipe was a great success. I also bought his chocolate on line at mrchocolate.com to insure perfection and I achieved it. Great book. The illustrations and stories are also lovely. I think it is a great coffee table book. I am definitely giving it to my friends who love chocolate and to those who love to bake.
