Chocolate Holidays (Paperback, 1st Artisan pbk. ed): Alice Medrich Chocolate Holidays (Paperback, 1st Artisan pbk. ed)
Alice Medrich
R411 R390 Discovery Miles 3 900 Save R21 (5%) Out of stock

Dramatic, seductive, playful, infinite in its variety, otherworldly in its taste: It's chocolate, and here's all the impetus you need to indulge your passion for it every day of the year. The beloved Alice Medrich, renowned for impeccable recipes that produce stellar results, has written Chocolate Holidays especially for people who love to bake but don't have enough hours in the day. Without compromising on flavor, texture, or ingredients, she pares down the preparation steps, teaches us resraint, and comes up with fifty amazing recipes, each a little jewel of elegance and simplicty.
An ideal year in chocolate might start with a New Year's brunch starring Chocolate Blini with Berry Caviar. Then there are Valentine's Day chocolate scones and St. Patrick's Day Irish Coffee Chocolate Mousse. And of course any "holiday" your imagination can conjure up is a perfect reason to indulge: perhaps a decadently rich hot chocolate served in demitasse portions to exorcise those end-of-February blues.
Spring might whisper chocolate Giant Krispy Easter Treats or a Passover Chocolate Nut Sponge Torte, or white chocolate-glazed Apricot Orange Cupcakes for a wedding shower. Summer suggests fruit and ice cream desserts such as the Independence Day red, white, and blue sundaes, followed by autumn's pies and tarts laden with chocolate and nuts. And no matter what you've been putting on the table for Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays past, it will be out-chocolated by Alice's Chocolate Cranberry Pudding and her Chocolate Hazelnut Roulade--both unequivocally year-end musts.
In Chocolate Holidays, Medrich unlocks the secrets of our favorite sweet, offering chocolate desserts for every season, for every reason.
First published in hardcover as "A Year in Chocolate" (Warner Books, 2001)

The world loves chocolate and chances are you do too. This enjoyable book will serve to deepen your love and also your understanding of chocolate. After reading this pleasurable and educational account by two leading dieticians, you will agree that chocolate is much more than simply a treat. You will discover it encompasses a culture, a cuisine, a treatment, and much more This book will help you explore some surprising applications of chocolate to your life: exploring the sensory pleasures of chocolate, entertaining with chocolate, and chocolate's role in emotional and physical wellness.
The authors begin by revealing how to truly savor chocolate. Even the most avid chocoholics will pick up tips on how to intensify the full chocolate flavor and expand their sensual experience. Next, they illustrate how cultures around the world enjoy chocolate, and how chocolate, more than just a flavor, is part of a lifestyle, holding a special place in holidays and celebrations globally. The authors journey to the rainforest and explore the origins of chocolate. They then trace its history through the centuries, from the Maya and Aztec cultures, where the chocolate phenomenon began. Over the ages, this dark, delectable food has been viewed as a gift from the gods, as valuable as gold, a medical treatment for illness, a social indulgence for the elite, and finally a treat to be enjoyed by everyone.
Today, science has proved what was revealed to ancient civilizations so long ago: chocolate has healing powers. At the end of the 1990s, authors Aaron and Bearden were among the first to communicate to the media the news that dark chocolate may enhance health, helping to launch the first "heart healthy" chocolate brand for a global chocolate company. A recent study by the Research Laboratories of the Catholic University in Campobasso, in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute of Milan, Italy and published in the Journal of Nutrition claims that 6.7 grams of dark chocolate per day represent the ideal amount for a protective effect against inflammation and subsequent cardiovascular disease. With luscious photography and enticing recipes, this delightful, even mouthwatering, book will bring your appreciation for this gift of Mother Nature to a new level.
