Dark, milk, white. With hints of vanilla or licorice, of coffee or violet.
Enhanced with dried fruits, laced with liquor, matched with pears, strawberries, oranges.
Is there anything more irresistible? What is diving into the paradise of a praline, into the exalting music of a crispy square, into the infinite sweetness of a cup of hot chocolate?
What is it to let oneself be enveloped by a sensuous mousse, be amazed by chocolate bars with flashes of hazelnuts, covered with a thin veil of caramel, or be pampered by the childlike poetry of a mountain of profiteroles? "Food of the gods," as the Mayas called it, it was used from the outset for preparing desserts, from the simplest to the most sumptuous.
What would life be without chocolate? It's hard to imagine. Moreover, it's also difficult just to imagine the endless colours, shapes, and intensities that chocolate can take on: dark, black, milk, white; tablets, chocolate drops, ice creams, puddings, creams.
Here is a lavishly illustrated volume, in a highly innovative and original design, celebrating the endless tasty variations that will delight
