by Jacques Torres

 

Premier chocolatier Jacques Torres owns a chocolate factory and retail outlets in New York City, was host of his own food shows on PBS and the Food Network, is author of two cookbooks, and is a dean at the French Culinary Institute. With his new book, Jacques Torres' A Year in Chocolate: 80 Recipes for Holidays and Special Occasions, Torres offers us 80 delicious ways to: fill the year with mouth-watering chocolate treats. With recipes that range from the perfect traditional chocolate cake to an innovative spicy Chocolate Tamale, this beautiful book is a must-have for every chocolate lover.

Whether it's delicate Poached Pears with Chocolate Fondue for New Year's Day, Pumpkin Seed Brittle for Halloween, or Chocolate-Covered Matzo for Passover, Jacques Torres' A Year in Chocolate ensures that every occasion is accompanied by a scrumptious chocolate creation. This luscious book features holiday classics like Peanut Butter Chocolate Eggs for Easter and Chocolate Sundaes for the Fourth of July, but also explores new realms of chocolate heaven with dishes like Pumpkin Chocolate Cake and Jacque's Famous Orange Chocolate Mix.

Straight out of Torres' chocolate-drenched imagination, filled with tantalizing photography of finished dishes and interesting tidbits about the Jacques Torres chocolate outlets and factory, A Year in Chocolate is an irresistible guide to a delicious year.
