Chocolate Matter, the stunning book by Stephane Leroux. At first glance, it's almost unimaginable that a wave, rose, granite, bamboo cane or mahogany plank could be made of chocolate. Each masterpiece reflects the technical expertise of Stephane Leroux in bringing matter to life in such striking fashion."Everything inspires me", explains Stephane Leroux, who draws on architecture, painting, sculpture... in his work. But it is nature - the sea, the birds, the plants and the flowers that stirs his imagination the most. This edition contains two books with one containing stunning photographs along with the main book of reciepes and techniques. What he produces in chocolate not only verges on perfection, but also offers that added spirit found in leading visual artists: a unique ability to capture light and spread its effects throughout an entire work. Stephane Leroux, recognised pastry chef is one of those who believe in the need to pass on the baton so that new generations can strive even further and continue this quest for perfection. With this in mind, take time to cast your eyes over the work within the work, the second book of the box set Chocolate Matters. In the 416 pages of these Design Techniques for Chocolate, Stephane Leroux presents about 50 style exercises using a step-by-step approach, from the creation of a stem in cocoa butter to the production of a concrete brick! More than 1200 photographs with accompanying text offer a wealth of detail on the progress of each piece, from the raw material, chocolate, to its transformation into a work of art, at the same time bringing all his creations within reach of everyone.
