Superb book long on creativity 17 novembre 2011
Par Reader from New England - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I rank this excellent book as equal but different from Greweling's splendid tome on "Chocolate and Confections". The two complement each other very well. The Classic Confections component of this book has many great recipes for truffles, dipped and molded chocolates, with a great deal of special attention given to decoration by using many colored cocoa butter techniques. After learning the basics from Greweling and Schotts (whose splendid little book on "Making Artisan Chocolates" is a necessary addition to any aspiring chocolatier's collection) I was keen on learning more about the magic of coloring chocolates.
While the Greweling book is more focused on the science and theory, this one adds greatly to one's repertoire by broadening the range of flavors and decoration experimentation.
I found the showpiece component interesting, and imagine it would be a fantastic primer for someone interested in entering chocolate competitions.
The text is clear, well organized with superb pictures.
The three books mentioned above are totally sufficient as a good chocolate library. I found the Recchiutti "Chocolate Obsession" and Pierre Herme books to be far less useful.

A beautiful book, but thin on useful info for beginners 1 avril 2011
Par seedless grape - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a beautiful book that provides lots of inspiration. The recipes go from basic to complicated, starting with simple chocolates formed in molds, progressing to truffles, then culminating in show-stopping architectural creations that look less like chocolate and more like small-scale sculptures. There are lots of pictures and fairly detailed instructions for each project.

I can only give 4 stars, though, because I found the book oddly lacking in the information that would be useful for beginners who are just starting to make their own chocolates. The book lists and explains all the tools that a chocolatier uses, for example, but I would have appreciated some information identifying the "starter" tools that a beginner really needs to have. (E.g.: You DO need candy molds. You DON'T need a guitar cutter. You DO need a spatula. You DON'T need a marble slab.) The book also provides very little information about the fundamental ingredient, chocolate (or more specifically, couverture). There is a paragraph explaining what couverture is, and telling you to use it, but there is precious little information about how different formulations and different percentages/ratios of cocoa butter and cocoa solids affect the finished product. With well over 700,000 Google hits for the word "couverture," moreover, a list of recommended suppliers or brands would have been useful.

I've enjoyed the book and have started making my own chocolates, which have turned out pretty well, but just a couple more pages in the first two chapters (before the book dives into the recipes) would have been very useful.

Chefwife (dot) com's review of this fabulous book 12 février 2011
Par Jane Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com

The Art of the Chocolatier by Ewald Notter, $65.00, Hardcover (Wiley)

First and foremost, this book is absolute gorgeous. The cover is elegant and simple. This is perfect for any coffee table. The page quality is amazing and the photography is topnotch. It is obvious that the publishers skimped on nothing when it came down to producing.

The book is divided into numerous parts
-Information regarding the basics of chocolate and ingredients used in the process of chocolate making.
-Essential Equipment needed to start your chocolate making journey.
-Basic techniques
-And then we move on to the recipes and instructions for producing your own pieces, from simple ganache to chocolate flowers and assembling three-dimensional figures.

As for the reading, it is fairly easy to follow. If you happen to jump straight in, you may run into terms that the average reader wouldn't be aware of. Lucky for us lameO's, the information in the beginning of the book starts from scratch. There are airbrushing techniques, and decorating techniques that are scary, to say the least. But the layout of the instructions is so easy to follow. Plus there are numerous photos for almost every recipe that help anyone make these.

And last but not least, lets be sure to give credit where credit is due: Joe Brooks and Luc Schaeffer did a fantastic job with the photography for this book. You don't go even one page without another gorgeous photo. It probably helps that Notter's creations are so visually appealing to start with.
