De Chocolade bijbel : Met meer dan 200 recepten Reviews
I received a copy of the book from my sister shortly before our wedding with the following inscription:Always remember the chocolate rules:1. Chocolate is not just a flavor.2. Chocolate has no calories.3. No matter what the problem is chocolate is always a part of the solution.This book is worth 5 stars alone for the "White Chocolate Celebration Cake" recipe. As soon as I saw the recipe, I knew that I had to make that cake for our wedding. Worth every decadent bite!Of course, there are plenty of other mouth-watering recipes to keep a chocolate lover blissfully happy as well as a fascinating history of chocolate and detailed instructions on how to temper chocolate and make a variety of chocolate decorations.
I've made quite a few recipes from this book, and have had... mixed results. The cookies I just made (Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies, p. 194) fused together in the oven to create a giant sheet-cookie, which was difficult to get off the pan. They taste good, but I had to cut them with a pizza cutter and eat the crushed, semi-baked mess with a fork.The Hazelnut and Chocolate Cake (p. 80) calls for an icing made of 5 oz. unsweetened chocolate, and 1/4 cup butter, AND NO OTHER INGREDIENTS. Have you ever eaten unsweetened chocolate? It tastes like death. The idea that a cake should be glazed with unsweetened chocolate AND NO SUGAR is utter garbage, and the cake turned out as such.I ~really~ like some of the ideas in this book (like Dark Chocolate Ravioli with White Chocolate and Cream Cheese Filling, p. 125), but the recipes are untrustworthy. If you're looking for a chocolate-focused cookbook, I recommend that you look elsewhere.
Buku ini saya beli setelah nonton film 'Chocolat' nya Johnny Depp. Ternyata gak rugi. Isinya tidak sekedar resep, namun juga sejarah coklat. Variasi resep cukup banyak mulai dari kue kering, cake dan pie, es krim, dan minuman dari coklat. Oh ya, sistem takarannya menggunakan sistem amerika yang menggunakan cup. Cocok buat saya yang males menakar dengan timbangan metric. Resep juga dijabarkan step-by-step dengan foto. Banyak juga yang sudah saya uji coba dan sukses.
Super! This book is filled with so much valuable information and the recipes and pictures appear divine.I have always been afraid of doing things with chocolate. It's just so exotic, chocolate is temperamental to work with and when you don't know what you're doing. Well, other than very, very simple recipes, I just didn't go there. There's no reason to fear now with this book in hand. I just need some special occasions and willing people to partake and I'm set to go.
Every recipe made from this book has been well received. Beautiful pictures and clear instructions that are numbered in steps. All in all a perfect cookbook!
Had good savory recipes as well as sweet.
The history section of the book is very interesting and the recipes are fantastic.
Beautiful to look at but the only things I've made out of here did not turn out well
