Chocolate: A Love Story by Max Brenner (Book Review)

Title: Chocolate: A Love Story
Author: Max Brenner
Artwork: Yonatan Factor

Publisher: Little, Brown and Company

My thoughts: This book is a combination cookbook, coffee-table artbook. Page after page of tantalizing chocolate recipes are accompanied by photographs and artwork of Yonatan Factor.

There are chocolate recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between. Chocolate isn't just for dessert anymore! I am no whiz in the kitchen, but most of these recipes use things that I had on hand. With the convenience of packaged foods, I don't usually take a lot of time to make things from scratch, but these were definitely worth the time.

My favorite so far has been A Philosophical Highly Concentrated Fudge Brownie. Let me just say that it calls for 32 ounces of dark chocolate - Yummy! My family is enjoying my journey through this book as much, if not more, than I am!

~I was provided this book for review by Hachette Books.~
