Each method is explained in text and step-by-step photographs, with fourteen of them further clarified on the accompanying ninety-minute DVD. In addition to these techniques, more than 100 recipes, organized into eight sections, are simplified for the home cook: classics (Black Forest cake, Sachertorte, profiteroles, molten chocolate cake, chocolate soufflé); tarts (chocolate-pear, nut-caramel-coffee); desserts to share (choco-ginger churros, chocolate-vanilla marbled waffles, bittersweet chocolate panna cotta, chocolate cream verrines); teatime snacks (chocolate-pecan ladyfingers, brownies, chocolate croissants, macaroons); iced desserts (parfait, granita, sorbet, and ice cream); special occasion creations (bittersweet chocolate fondue, crisp triple chocolate cake, hazelnut praline Christmas log); candies (bonbons, coconut bars, truffles, lollipops); and new trends (Truffled Ivory Macaroons or filet mignon with bittersweet chocolate sauce). Each recipe is graded with a three-star rating, enabling the home chef to gauge its complexity and gradually expand his abilities through experience. Cross references to techniques, DVD footage, glossary terms, and complementary recipes make navigation easy. The volume includes practical resources: a visual dictionary of kitchen equipment; tips for conserving chocolate; a guide to the history and science of dark, milk, and white chocolate including the importance of cocoa content; and a detailed index to the recipes and techniques.
