Hotel Chocolat: A New Way of Cooking with Chocolate

  • Hardback
  • £20.00

The cookbook for chocolate lovers. Bring a touch of luxury into your kitchen!

Chocolate is one of our most popular ingredients - both to eat and to cook with. But how many of us know how truly versatile it is? Hotel Chocolat, the UK's leading chocolatier, has pioneered 'cocoa cuisine': a new way of cooking with chocolate because, athough we know chocolate as a sweet ingredient, cocoa was originally used in savoury recipes. In fact, cocoa is a 'super-ingredient' with many layers of flavour and plenty of goodness too, and and this book showcases its many flavours and nuances with over 100 innovative chocolate recipes, both sweet and savoury.

Hotel Chocolat has created energy-boosting recipes for breakfast, savoury recipes that enhance meat and fish dishes as well as give texture and depth to salads and snacks. And of course, not forgetting the hedonistic qualities that we love so much - with seductive bakes and puddings for all tastes.

Find out too how to use the whole bean, from the shell to the nibs, cocoa powder to bar. And how to roast your own beans and even create a bar of your own. Uniquely, each recipe has a Cocoa Factor to indicate the depth of flavour as well as the cocoa percentage and region that will best suit the dish. Angus Thirlwell, Hotel Chocolat's visionary founder, will also take you through the story of chocolate from pod to plate.

Welcome to cocoa cuisine!

Biographical Notes

Hotel Chocolat is a British chocolatier that has brought quality chocolate to the high street. It is however, more than a chocolatier - it is one of the world's few chocolate makers to actually grow its own cocoa, and it has also taken chocolate from pod to plate with innovative restaurants in London, Leeds and St Lucia.

British entrepreneurs, Angus Thirlwell and Peter Harris embarked upon their Hotel Chocolat journey 20 years ago. The company pioneers a 'more cocoa, less sugar' approach to its chocolate, allowing its true flavours to shine through. Their cocoa plantation in St Lucia offers local farmers a sustainable and profitable source of income.

My Big Jewish Kitchen

Anne Shooter
Authors:
Anne Shooter

Praise for Anne's first book:'Sesame & Spice is an absolute treat; full of warmth and generosity, and so many recipes I want to cook, that I've been headily immoderate with my post-it notes!' Nigella LawsonOne of my favourite childhood memories is going round to my grandparents' house in London's East End on a Friday afternoon with my mum and brothers, waiting for my dad and aunts, uncles and cousins to arrive for dinner.My grandma would be in the kitchen, frying onions in schmaltz, checking the potatoes roasting with the chicken and stirring the soup. An apple cake would be on a smart plate on the sideboard and the whole house smelled warm and familiar. And now, every Friday, like my mum and my grandma, and her mother before her, I prepare a traditional, Jewish dinner for my family and friends. But this book isn't only aimed at Jewish people. That's where my recipes come from, but they are recipes that I want to share with everyone. Easy to cook, delicious to eat and full of warmth and generousity.I cook these recipes whenever we have friends or family over - a weekday one-tray supper of chicken, aubergine and bulghar wheat, a Sunday lunch of lamb shanks with apricots or a duck, fig and pomegranate salad for our New Year. I can turn around a veritable feast of a dinner in a couple of hours because these recipes are tried and tested by generations of cooks before me, recipes I will be passing on to my daughters for their own families one day, I hope, and that you will to yours. This is indeed a book inspired by my Jewish roots, but above all, it is a book of food to make for people you love.

Caribbean Modern

Shivi Ramoutar
Authors:
Shivi Ramoutar

When you think of the Caribbean, a hundred beautiful clichés come to mind - white sand, blue sky, salty breezes and balmy nights. But what of the food? Eating is at the heart of Caribbean life: people come together in the kitchen, someone starts cooking and soon there is laughter, music and fantastic food.Shivi Ramoutar grew up in Trinidad, Leicester and London. As a supperclub host and pop-up chef, Shivi turned to her favourite Caribbean dishes for inspiration. Her recipes are a wonderful melting pot of flavours: traditional Coconut Chicken Rundown sits alongside Red Bean and Spinach Mac 'n' Cheese and Baked Eggs Creole. Her food is fresh and zingy, exciting and exotic, but also satisfyingly homely and hearty. And not forgetting the fun -Salted Tamarind Caramel Sundae, Smashed Banana Pancakes and Peanut Butter and Jelly Cheesecake - without which the book just wouldn't be Caribbean.
