This book is a celebration of chocolate-making in this country, designed to locate and bring to a wider audience the fascinating people making good chocolate in the right way. Arranged geographically in a dozen regional chapters, each one is centred on a local hero but also casts light on other chocolatiers and bean-to-bar makers in their area.

Nowadays, high-quality chocolate is widely available in many different delicious forms to an increasingly discerning market.

In the chocolate master class, William shares his techniques and most mouth-watering recipes, starting with the basics: tempering and making a bar of chocolate; advice on how to add exotic flavours like rosemary or raspberry; and introducing different textures. Once those skills have been mastered, it's time to tackle some of his incredible creations...His delectable recipes are helpfully grouped into sections: 'Truffles and Filled Chocolates' examines the science behind creating the perfect truffle, making ganache and adding fabulous flavours; 'Couture Chocolates' looks at experimental (but delicious) fillings such as apricot and wasabi, sea salt caramel, black rice vinegar and thyme; 'Bouches and Small Delights' covers blackcurrant tea cake, chocolate rochers and millionaire shortbread; 'Patisserie' explores chocolate and praline Paris Brest, chocolate financier with passion fruit curd, chocolate mille-fuille and more; 'Cakes and Biscuits' boasts chocolate and pistachio cake, macaroons, sable and chocolate rosette with orange ganache; and finally 'Chocolate Ices, Drinks, Sauces and Spread' looks at a huge variety, including Gianduja chocolate, Tahitian vanilla and golden chestnut.
