Praise

Library Journal, (Maggie Knapp, Trinity Valley Sch. Lib., Fort Worth, TX)
“Before presenting the recipes, Engoron, an award-winning chef and cofounder of the premium California chocolate boutique Choclatique, details the history of chocolate, buying and caring for chocolate, and using all the senses to appreciate it fully. (Break the chocolate and listen for the snap. Smell the bar at the broken point….) All of the recipes call for ganache, which is relatively simple to prepare but should be made separately a day beforehand. Some recipes require specialized ingredients or cookware, which novice cooks may not have on hand. Gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan recipes are noted. The finished book will feature QR codes that link to video demonstrations; a buying guide for “keen stuff” is included. VERDICT Mouthwatering recipes for chocolate lovers who are willing to devote an hour or two (or maybe more) to create a chocolate dessert with maximum wow power."
 

Barbara Fairchild, Culinary Authority
"An ambitious, impressive cookbook with a clever premise: Using easy-to-make ganache as the basis for a range of all kinds of delicious chocolate desserts. What's not to love?"

Jeffrey Dryfoos, Publisher Dessert Professional Magazine
"I have known Ed as a Chocolatier and now see him as an author. This, his first book, is an excellent addition to anyone's kitchen library. For those who do not make dessert at home, well you are in for a real treat. Ed makes dessert something that anyone can now achieve."

Tish Boyle, cookbook author and dessert blogger
"The Choclatique Cookbook
delivers an inspiring collection of knock-out desserts for chocolate lovers, and it’s also a fascinating read. Ed Engeron has traveled all over the world in search of the best chocolate, and the stories of his far-flung adventures are as engaging as his recipes. For a chocophile, it doesn’t get much better than this."
