Growing Up on the Chocolate Diet

Candy | Feb 17, 201510:28 AM     3

I think it is time we all (chocolate lovers) revisit this book by Lora Brody.

I made a chocolate mousse for Valentines day. It was one I could make again this week and eat the whole thing myself. Instead of the strong coffee in the recipe I subbed Solenro blood orange liqueur. Heavenly stuff and what a combination.

With chocolate so prominently on my mind when I sat down by the fire for a pre dinner drink I was perusing a shelf of cookbooks I don't use very often but want to keep. My eyes turned to GUCD. So many wonderful recipes. Nathalie Dupree has been posting on FB about not getting Mont Blanc, wow there is a recipe right there. I'm thinking about making her Trianon cake. I'll have to go measure my loaf pans. If you don't have the book look for it. It is not just a cookbook but a memoir too and some good reading.
