Whether you are an expert in the dessert kitchen or a beginner with a desire for the delicious, this collection will introduce you to the myriad delights of Pierre Herme's desserts, his unusual juxtapositions of ingredients, his conjurer's touch with textures, and his always perfect pitch when it comes to sweetness, tartness and chocolatey-ness.
Here you will find recipes for the simplest chocolate truffle as well as the luxuriously soft and rich Suzy's Cake, which is spectacularly delicious yet quite simple to make. Through more than seventy-five recipes, you will have the many pleasures of tasting chocolate in all its states - hot and cold, creamy and crunchy, smooth and custardy, thick and chewy, bittersweet and sweet, dark, milk and white.
Finally, there are the indispensable Base Recipes and a Dictionary of terms, techniques, Equipment and Ingredients. Together they form a complete course in chocolate dessert artistry.
