Overview

2014 James Beard Award Finalist2014 IACP Cookbook Award Winner
Stories and recipes from the Mast Brothers, makers and purveyors of America's finest craft chocolate.

The Mast Brothers are pioneers of the bean-to-bar craft chocolate movement. Sourcing cocoa with unique flavor profiles from around the equator, they roast the beans in small batches to create truly handmade chocolate, one of the very few chocolate makers to do so. At their flagship factory and retail shop in Brooklyn, their distinctive bars are wrapped in exquisite custom papers that they have designed and are sold at specialty food shops around the country and around the world.

Many of the world's pre-eminent chefs, including Thomas Keller, Dan Barber, Daniel Humm, Alice Waters, and Alain Ducasse choose Mast Brothers Chocolate for cooking for its purity and distinctive tasting notes.

In MAST BROTHERS CHOCOLATE: A FAMILY COOKBOOK they share their unique story and recipes for classic American desserts like chocolate cookies and cakes, brownies, bars, milkshakes, and even home-made whoopie pie. There are mouthwatering savory dishes as well, like Pan-seared Scallops with Cocoa Nibs and Cocoa Coq au Vin. With striking color photographs throughout, this cookbook celebrates the vision and allure of Mast Brothers Chocolate, the leaders of the American craft chocolate movement and the choice of the world's great chefs.

Editorial Reviews

Thomas Keller
We are forever enriched by people like the Mast Brothers, who have helped us appreciate the range of flavors possible in a single bar of chocolate.
<b>Julia Moskin</b> - The New York Times
Mast Brothers Chocolate, made in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, since 2007, has been on the cutting edge of the craft-food movement since the start. Their new book . . . is filled with chocolate-focussed recipes, but it also illustrates how something as basic as a chocolate bar can become a culinary obsession.
Gizmodo
Crazy delicious.
Time
Hands down the most beautiful packaging.
Eater
For chocolate fanatics, there's only one cookbook that matters this Fall: Mast Brothers Chocolate: A Family Cookbook by Rick and Michael Mast. . . . Other cookbooks could learn a thing or two about how luxuriously simple recipe layouts can be from this one.
J.M. Hirsch - The Associated Press
The Mast brothers have written a book of delicious simplicity, filled with recipes so evocatively photographed and so clearly written, you will cook from it.
Brooklyn Paper
"It's a beautifully constructed book overall, with signature custom paper designs showing up throughout and gorgeous photographs, which tell the story of Rick and Michael Mast's bean-to-bar craft chocolate, alongside recipes for classic American desserts."
Food and Wine
"The Mast brothers are poster boys for the Brooklyn craft food movement. Their story, which they tell beautifully through a series of essays in their new cookbook, is a great American entrepreneurial one. . . ."
The Kitchn
"A beautiful, thoughtful cookbook that not only delivers their take on the tried and true with recipes for brownies, cupcakes, and truffles but also offers some innovative chocolate-based recipes such as Chocolate Meringue Pie... this book is a winner."

    I would recommend this book because of the brothers' compelling

    I would recommend this book because of the brothers' compelling personal story and because of the beautiful, artistic photographs. I have 
    tried only one recipe so far, but I suspect that the recipes are not the strongest element of this book. The cupcakes, for example, are
    overly crumbly (not overbaked--they are too tender and just don't hold together); the recipe makes 16 or 18, not 12, so the cups were 
    overfilled and had mushroom tops (unlike the photo); the mixing order is odd; the baking time is way too short (for 12 cupcakes, it
    required 20-22 minutes, not 15), etc. The other recipes look a little nonstandard to me as well. In short, buy this as a coffee table book, but not as an everyday chocolate cookbook.
