Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Known as the Picasso of chocolatiers, Michael Recchiuti creates confections that are every bit as daring and original as any of his namesake's artworks. But unlike the painter, the chocolate maker has made it possible for even the amateur to achieve his artistry. In Chocolate Obsession Recchiuti, owner of the famed artisanal chocolate company in San Francisco, divulges his professional secrets and techniques, allowing home cooks to reproduce his exquisite confections in their own kitchens.

Opening with a complete discussion of chocolate from bean to bar, the book goes on to offer detailed instructions for dipped chocolates, truffles, and molded chocolates, including Recchiuti's signature ganache flavors: Earl Grey tea, burnt caramel, tarragon with grapefruit. Also featured are recipes for such sinfully delicious treats as Chocolate Shortbread Cookies with Truffle Cream Filling, Double Dark Chocolate Soufflés, and Rocky Recchiuti Brownies. With more than 60 recipes in all, this book will satisfy even the most obsessive chocolate lovers among us.

Techniques for dipping chocolate ganache and handling various forms of "set" ganache is very helpful to the amatuer. I also enjoyed all the information given about working with chocolates that have a higher cocoa content.

I felt that he wasn't giving away any secrets and I had some unanswered questions which I will have to discover the answers to on my own.

The background of the creation of the chocolate factory and the photos are a nice touch.
