Chocolate: A Love Story by Max Brenner (of Chocolate by the Bald Man) is a collection of recipes from Brenner's restaurants.
Every one of the 66 recipes contain chocolate. Most are desserts, but there are also some breakfast dishes and a few beverages. The vast majority of the ingredients should be easy to find for almost everyone, but a few call for specific types of chocolate or Greek yogurt or a particular liqueur.
The directions are clear and easy to follow, but most dishes are not quick to put together. Desserts run the range from banana splits and chocolate meringues to souffles and yeasted waffles.
There is no index, but each recipe is listed in the table of contents.
One of the joys of Chocolate is the incredible art by Yonatan Factor. Each recipe is accompanied by a full-page poster-like graphic. I love Factor's work!
