Advantages Easy to follow recipes that taste absolutely delicious
Disadvantages Too tempting!
I adore chocolate as I find it so satisfying and indulgent although I have to moderate my intake as otherwise my bathroom scales would be going into overdrive. As many people are aware, this delicious creamy confectionary contains an amino acid named tryptophan, which is used by the brain to create serotonin that subsequently makes us happy. I’m sure there are many that could benefit from a chocolate overdose as so many people these days seem to be walking around with faces to their feet!
It is very rare that I shop in Sainsburys, but on the occasions that I visit I like to browse through all of their cookery books and it was this book that caught my eager eye a few years ago due to its enticing cover. The book is pocket sized and is probably half the size of an A5 sheet. I only have to see the word “chocolate” and I’m drawn in, but to have the words “everyday” chocolate on the cover is an absolute dream although it should really be accompanied with some information on Weight Watchers or the joys of undergoing liposuction.
The book is protected by a glossy paper sleeve to match the cover of the actual book and contains 240 pages of sheer indulgence. We are initially introduced to the world of chocolate and learn of its origins before we are whisked into the colourful pages of sheer indulgence and sugar overload. The book is broken down into chapters where we are provided with the most mouth watering images of puddings, cakes, tortes and chocolates to name just a few. Each recipe covers two pages with the image located on the right hand side and the easy to follow recipe on the left. My favourites are those that use dark chocolate or white chocolate and the book most definitely covers many recipes to satisfy the cravings.
A point I have found very helpful is that we are advised how many people each recipe will feed, which I would hasten to add is absolute nonsense with me when it comes to chocolate! A requirement for me when purchasing cookery books is that each recipe must display an image as I lack inspiration when following simple text. However, in the case of a book consisting of chocolate recipes this isn’t the best idea for me as they are far too tempting.
