Why aren't there any chocolate cookbooks on our "most commonly shared" list? Inquiring minds want to know!
I have plenty of dessert-oriented cookbooks, but none specifically devoted to chocolate. I guess I don't use it much because I hate my stove. LOL
Does anyone have a cookbook that uses chocolate in non-dessert recipes? I'm thinking of the fancy dinner in Chocolat or certain mole sauces... Mmmm!
I have to admit though that I don't really like chocolate in savoury dishes. For me it's got to be sweet all the way.
I do use dark chocolate in savoury dishes - one square into a hare sauce, for example, and something truly scrumptious is prawns and mango with a dribble of chilli-chocolate sauce.
One of our local chocolatiers sells bottles of chocolate vinegar - I use it sparingly on baked salmon or even fresh strawberries.
Do we have any good fiction books about chocolate?
re:chocolate fiction ... Like water for Chocolate comes to mind because of the title and a mole receipe in one of the chapters. Although the story itself is less about chocolate and more about the lives of sisters in a mexican home from the perspective of the kitchen, with that thread of mystical/spirituality that runs through a lot of South American fiction. Worth reading.

Thx for those--I have already explored them and loved them. You make me wistful to reread, which I have not done for a long time!

Great Architecture and chocolate all in one place!
Chocolatiers of the Basque confectioners association are taking advantage of Picasso's fondness with monochrome to create a life-size chocolate version of Picasso's Guernica, although the Guardian's image only shows the top left hand corner.
Pity the chap on the left is a nose-breather.
