Rococo makes the finest chocolates in the world. Its founder, Chantal Coady, has been a pioneer of the nouveau chocolate revolution for 30 years. She established the award-winning Rococo Chocolates business and school and continues to blaze the trail for chocolate creativity. In this beautiful and indulgent book, Chantal shares her expertise and chocolate alchemy. From the perfect ganache recipe to delicious salted caramel truffles, and from a stunning chocolate roulade to extreme chocolate combinations, Rococo celebrates gastronomy's finest, most complex and luxurious of ingredients - chocolate.
This book is indeed beautiful; however, it is much more than that. It is one of the most candid insights into the life and business history of an entrepreneur and industry pioneer, coupled with a selection of brilliant recipes written in plain English. The author is an expert in writing about chocolate, but also brilliant at teaching you how to write in chocolate. This really is the how-to book from the woman who invented the British chocolate movement, 30 years ago, opening her first shop at the age of 23. Whether you are a fellow businesswoman, like me, or a passionate chocolate lover (like me!) this is a book you should buy, own and give to the women in your life that you want to encourage. Chantal Coady has blazed a trail for businesswomen and chocolate lovers alike for three decades, and we have much to be thankful to her for, not least of which is that she was prepared to share her story and her recipes with us in such a fabulously photographed book._Heather McGregor (ISBN = 978 â€“ 0 â€“ 297 â€“ 86519- 3)
