The chefs at America’s Test Kitchen have been indulging their chocoholic fantasies in this latest work to come out of their culinary empire. Recipes range from simple cookies and no-bake candies to showstopper desserts worthy of the Great British Bake Off. Large, full-color photographs help home cooks visualize creations that are sure to be mouthwatering. As usual, the recipes are tested several times, and come with explanatory headnotes of why particular techniques or ingredients are utilized. Many also include photographs showing steps along the way, which is particularly helpful for the more complicated productions. There is also a nice section on working with chocolate and helpful tools for baking, along with a conversion chart of weights and measures at the end.
VERDICT Overall, a terrific new compendium that will appeal to bakers and chocolate fans of all skill levels.
