 About the Book 

It is hard, today, to imagine a time when the word bittersweet was rarely spoken, when 70 percent of the chocolate purchased by Americans was milk chocolate. Todays world of chocolate is a much larger universe, where not only is the quality betterMoreIt is hard, today, to imagine a time when the word bittersweet was rarely spoken, when 70 percent of the chocolate purchased by Americans was milk chocolate. Todays world of chocolate is a much larger universe, where not only is the quality better and variety wider, but the very composition of the chocolate has changed. To do justice to these new chocolates, which contain more pure chocolate and less sugar, we need a fresh approach to chocolate desserts a new kind of recipe and someone to crack the code for substituting one chocolate for another in both new and classic recipes. Alice Medrich, the First Lady of Chocolate, delivers. With nearly 150 recipes each delicious and foolproof, no matter your level of expertise BitterSweet answers every chocolate question, teaches every technique, confides every secret, satisfies every craving. Youll marvel that recipes as basic as brownies and chocolate cake, mint chocolate chip ice cream and chocolate mousse, can still surprise and excite you, and that souffles, chocolate panna cotta, even pasta sauces can be so dramatically flavorful. For the last thirty years, Alice Medrich has been learning, teaching, and sharing what she loves and understands about chocolate. BitterSweet is the culmination of her life in chocolate thus far: revolutionary recipes, profound knowledge, and charming tales of a chocolate life.Currently out of print.
