An ultimate chocolate cookbook by an award-winning pastry chef offers professional advice and information about equipment, ingredients, and techniques for such fare as Truffle Tart, Cocoa Roll, and Chocolate Brioche French Toast.
He's the champion of chocolate. The king of cocoa. The guru of ganache. He's Marcel Desaulniers, award-winning cookbook author and chef-owner of Williamsburg, Virginia's renowned restaurant, The Trellis. And he's back with a whole new collection of festive recipes that turn any day into a holiday in Celebrate With Chocolate.
Whether you want a romantic cake for two, a "Big-Ass" cake for twenty, cookies, pies, or anything in between, Marcel will show you the way. In Celebrate With Chocolate, he takes you to the outer limits of the chocolate universe, with over-the-top combinations that are surprisingly simple to make.
Want something that towers over ordinary chocolate deserts? Try Marcel's "She Ain't Heavy" Chocolate Cake, which stacks three layers of extravagantly light, cocoa-saturated cake, all coated with a smooth cocoa icing. Or for a lunchtime favorite turned sweet treat that satisfies any child from 3 to 103, just pour a glass of milk and check out the Chocolate Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cookies. Whatever you make, with Marcel's guidance, this book will keep your ever-growing fan club happy.
No holiday is required to Celebrate With Chocolate with Marcel Desaulniers. Just have a true love of chocolate. Don't we all?
