I absolutely love this cookbook!!! The original copy I own is now 27 years old and is falling apart because it's still used all the time. When I first bought the book, I was just learning to cook. Nobody in my family could understand how I could barely boil water but bake a delicious and beautiful cake for someone's birthday or 'absolutely the best chocolate chip cookies ever'. My secret weapon was this book! The instructions for each recipe are so incredibly detailed and easy to understand that it's almost like having your own personal cooking instructor right there with you. This book is a must have for any chocolate lover who has loved to cook for quite a while or anyone who is just learning. I would recommend it highly to anyone!!!!
