    Description'The dark stuff is the heart of the matter in Erica Lanlard's latest - and, dare we say, greatest - cookery book, Chocolat. It's a beautiful collection of recipes, but they're far more than just eye candy: they're deceptively easy to make and they really work.' -- Sweet Things Master Patissier Eric Lanlard shares more than 100 of his favourite recipes that use the ingredient he loves the most - chocolate. As a young patisserie chef, Eric was taught how to make chocolate and he went on to train as an apprentice chocolatier. He has since been fascinated with this ingredient, making it his mission to master the techniques of moulding, blending, shaping and baking with chocolate. Now you can share Eric's passion as he reveals his tried-and-tested techniques with this new selection of chocolate-based recipes, from quick bakes, cakes and simple sauces to show-stopping party pieces and after-dinner treats, all with easy-to-follow methods and helpful tips. With foolproof recipes and gorgeous photography by Kate Whitaker, this is a must-have cookbook for chocolate-lovers everywhere. From the Bakery features everyday treats such as Devilish Chocolate Brownies, Pain au Chocolat as well as a few classics inspired by Eric s travels including Chocolate Kouglof and Chocolate and Pistachio Biscotti. Desserts & Puddings is where Eric showcases his trademark glamour in his baking, with Gateau Opera and Chocolate Millefeuille as well as family favourites including Proper Chocolate Mousse, Hot Chocolate Souffle and Chocolate and Banana Tart. Truffles & Treats include sweet treats from Old-fashioned Truffles to Chocolate Toffee, before Drinks, Sauces & Spreads where you can make your own homemade Hazelnut Chocolate Spread, as well as indulge in a selection of chocolate-based drinks and cocktails.
