This original chocolate cookbook by Green & Black's is packed with recipes to tempt, tease and torment lovers of this food of the gods. Chocolate inspires many moods and so the chapters include Magic (glamorous recipes for dinner parties), Abracadabra (quick and easy recipes), Melting (light puddings and mousses that melt on your tongue), Licking the Bowl (for children and birthdays), and Wicked (those irresistible concoctions). It also includes the more traditional ideas for cakes, puddings and biscuits, and there are more surprising recipes for soups, chillies and meat (chicken mole and Italian sweet salami).
Woven into the book are stories about the history and myths of chocolate and its cultivation and production with location pictures of the organic cocoa plantations in Belize. Green & Black's Chocolate Recipes is a veritable feast for all the senses.
