The Ghirardelli Chocolate Cookbook: Recipes and History from America’s Premier Chocolate Maker


America is experiencing a chocolate renaissance and the epicenter is in the San Francisco Bay Area, where Ghirardelli has long been the standard-bearer for great chocolate. Domingo Ghirardelli first began making chocolate drinks for miners during the Gold Rush. In the more than 150 years since, the chocolatiers who have carried on the company’s grand tradition have made Ghirardelli the leading premium manufacturer in the country. Growing consumer demand for higher-quality cacao and specialized chocolate products prompted the experts at Ghirardelli to revise this collection of classic cookies, bars, cakes, and drinks. The recipes range from simple sweets to show-stopping desserts, while a special section on hosting a chocolate party comes just in time for holiday baking and entertaining. A stylish revision of the classic cookbook from America’s longest continually operating chocolate manufacturer. Includes more than 80 recipes, a primer on chocolate varieties and uses, and more than 25 full-color photographs. This perfect gift for chocolate lovers includes a new holiday recipe section with a guide to creating edible gifts like cocoa mixes and decadent fudge sauce. Previous edition sold more than 65,000 copies.Reviews‚ÄúTrue chocoholics . . . will want to dip into The Ghirardelli Chocolate Cookbook, oozing with recipes for homemade hot fudge sauce, lava cake, chocolate waffles and the like.‚Äù‚ÄîParade

Chunks of Chewy Chocolate

Recipe out of Liddabit Sweets. After a "curing" stint (the book says overnight but I didn’t get to it until 3 days later) it’s a lot easier to cut into chunks, roll and slice into pieces. Instead of pinching off bits of dough I rolled large chunks into snakes to slice.

No. 11: Chocolate and rosemary ice cream

Recipe (serves four): Heat (but don’t boil) 6dl single cream, 1dl milk, seeds from one vanilla pod and four rosemary stalks. Cool for ten minutes. Remove the rosemary stalks. Whip five egg yolks and 125g of sugar bright, and add the cooled cream mixture. Reheat carefully and stir until thick enough to hang on to a spoon (downside up). Remove from the heat, and immediately add 125g of chocolate spoon while stirring until melted. Pour into a frost-safe plastic box, reinsert the rosemary stalks and leave to cool down. Then remove the stalks, and freeze in an ice cream machine following it’s instructions. (You may freeze manually in a freezer, but in my experience only if you can watch over it and stir and frequent intervals until frozen – I did not, resulting in the chunky cubes in the picture.)
