Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No longer just a simple, syrupy sweet drink, today's hot chocolates are brimming with extraordinary flavors like cayenne, vanilla beans, Nutella, buttered rum, pistachios, wasabi, peanut butter, and malted milk balls. Featuring white chocolate foam, marshmallow cream, and frozen and fondue versions, the 60 recipes presented in Hot Chocolate are setting trends in haute chocolate consumption. Contributed by the world's preeminent chocolatiers, these luxurious concoctions range from ancient Latin American originals and European café classics to comforting childhood treats, cocktails spiked just for adults, and imaginative modern variations for the hip chocoholic of any age.  With recipes from Vosges Haut-Chocolat, Serendipity 3, Citizen Cake, Fran's Chocolates, Scharffen Berger Chocolate, and many more. A cup of hot chocolate is twice as rich in antioxidants as a glass of red wine. And, some would say, is just as intoxicating.

Synopsis:

Hot chocolate is not just a childrenand#8217;s drink anymore: In recent years it has become a connoisseurand#8217;s beverage served in trendy coffeehouses and appearing on upscale restaurant dessert menus.

The book provides a fascinating history of hot chocolate and lots of useful tips on how to make fabulous hot chocolate, which kinds of chocolate to use, and how to garnish the drinks, plus bonus recipes for homemade marshmallows and perfect whipped cream. There is also a chapter on preparing high-quality homemade hot chocolate mixes that can be given as gifts. With stylish full-color photos showcasing sumptuous variety, the IACP award-nominated Hot Chocolate is a great gift for anyone who loves chocolate.

THE AUTHOR SCOOP

Who would you cast as yourself in a movie of your life?

When I ran my restaurant in Ithaca, NY, we would often guess who would play each of the staff if they ever filmed the story of running a restaurant.  The consensus was that Clint Eastwood would have been tapped to play me:  "Go ahead, make my day."

Have you ever met a famous person?

Guest speakers and performers who visited Cornell would often be taken out to dinner at my restaurant, so over the years I met people like George McGovern, Geraldine Ferraro, William F. Buckley, John Houseman, Douglas Edwards, Carl Sagan, John F. Kennedy Jr., Betty Freidan, Andre Tschelicheff, Al Unser, Jr., Kim Alexis, Cousin Bruce Morrow, Peter Yarrow, and Neil Sedaka, to name a few.

 

Favorite cocktail?

Smoked-Tomato Bloody Mary (Stonecat Café, Hector, NY)

Favorite dessert?

Tin Roof Sundae (Tom's Ice Cream Bowl, Zanesville, OH)

Tell me something that people might not know about you.

As a long distance runner, I've completed 109 races of marathon distance or longer (includes five 50-mile trail races).
