ChocolateChocolate caught my eye because the cover is so beautiful and because it had the word chocolate in the title twice...of course! This book is really informative, Lisa shares various valuable baking processes that should be very well received by home bakers. Lisa teaches an in depth lesson about chocolate, what it is, how it is made, different types, working with it, techniques and methods. It is also infused with sweet stories that lead into delicious recipes! The photography, by Ben Fink, is gorgeous too! This is really a fabulous book, worth getting for yourself or as a gift for a friend.
Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey, by Jill O'Connor, is one of our favorite go to dessert books! Sometime we just marvel at the design of the book, even the borders are adorable! It's full of whimsical pictures, by Leigh Beisch, and recipes that make you want to run out and buy every ingredient in the book and start baking! We love how Jill's stories intertwine with her recipes. There are also tons of great and useful tips that you will love. This book is truly a delight, you will just adore it!
