Chantal Coady is a most exemplary chocoholic. The author of Real Chocolate and owner of Rococo, a specialty chocolate shop in London, Coady's resumé includes such enviable accomplishments as starting the Campaign for Real Chocolate and launching The Chocolate Society. Obsessed by chocolate, Coady always dreamt of opening a chocolate shop, and over the more than 20 years since she opened one she's become an expert on all things chocolate, and these days Rococo even makes its own.
Real Chocolate begins with a comprehensive history of chocolate through the ages, introduces us to Rococo, and best of all, waxes poetic about just how good for us chocolate really is. Apparently it's one of the most nutritious and easily digested foods known to man, containing a multitude of vitamins, minerals, and complex alkaloids; is an instant anti-depressant; and has antibacterial properties. Recipes in this mouthwatering volume are categorized as savory or sweet--and there are a remarkable number of savory ones, including Eggplant and Tahini Crostini, made extra-rich by the addition of cocoa powder; Chocolate Tempura with cocoa nibs in the batter; and Lacquered Duck in Chocolate Sauce. Sweet options include White Chocolate Pannacotta, Dark Chocolate and Cherry "Crème Brûlée," and a stunning Pear and Chocolate Tart. And since it's so good for us, why not start by delving into chocolate personified: a big mug of Coady's Old Fashioned Hot Chocolate--smooth, thick, rich, and absolutely delicious. --Leora Y.
