When I was first learning to work with chocolate, I purchased this book. That was over three years ago and since then my family has enjoyed chocolate fudge, chocolate covered cherries, truffles, etc. This was the first candy making book I ever purchased and the pictures were the inspiration that got me into the kitchen. I highly recommend this book if you are just learning about candy making. It will teach you the basics of temperature which is essential to the quality of the candies you create. The only problem with this book: You will want to make every single treat! In the back of this book you will also find a list of suppliers. I now order the best chocolate in the world! I also discovered some of my favorite cooking catalogs.
I found this book beautifully presented. Very easy to read. Reading the book made me excited about making all the beautiful pictures displayed.
