Couture Chocolate PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Couture Chocolate free pdf At one time, cocoa beans were prized so highly they were used as currency and only the privileged could enjoy what the Aztecs knew as 'xocoatl'. Nowadays, high-quality chocolate is widely available in many different delicious forms to an increasingly discerning market. In this delightfully decadent book, the UK's premier chocolatier William Curley presents the ultimate master class for all things chocolate. Couture Chocolate first examines the origins of one of the world's most popular foods -explaining the method of creating chocolate, how its quality depends to a large extent on the variety of bean used, and the differences between plain, milk and white chocolates. It reveals how some of today's most popular flavours -such as vanilla and chilli- were those favoured by the pioneering Aztec chocolatiers centuries ago. In the chocolate master class, William shares his techniques and most mouth-watering recipes, starting with the basics: tempering and making a bar of chocolate- advice on how to add exotic flavours like rosemary or raspberry- and introducing different textures. Once those skills have been mastered, it's time to tackle some of his incredible creations...His delectable recipes are helpfully grouped into sections: 'Truffles and Filled Chocolates' examines the science behind creating the perfect truffle, making ganache and adding fabulous flavours- 'Couture Chocolates' looks at experimental (but delicious) fillings such as apricot and wasabi, sea salt caramel, black rice vinegar and thyme- 'Bouches and Small Delights' covers blackcurrant tea cake, chocolate rochers and millionaire shortbread- 'Patisserie' explores chocolate and praline Paris Brest, chocolate financier with passion fruit curd, chocolate mille-fuille and more- 'Cakes and Biscuits' boasts chocolate and pistachio cake, macaroons, sable and chocolate rosette with orange ganache- and finally 'Chocolate Ices, Drinks, Sauces and Spread' looks at a huge variety, including Gianduja chocolate, Tahitian vanilla and golden chestnut. With its unique recipes and sumptuous photographs, Couture Chocolate delivers a lifetime's worth of culinary excitement and experimentation into your kitchen. With William Curley as a guide, you need never eat a bland dessert again.

About William Curley

Brought up in Fife, Scotland, William Curley's career began with an apprenticeship at Gleneagles Hotel, followed by several years at numerous Michelin-starred establishments, working with respected chefs including Pierre Koffmann at La Tante Claire, Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons, Marco Pierre White at The Restaurant and Marc Meneau at L'Esperance in France. William then became Chef Patissier at The Savoy Hotel, where he met fellow patissiere and future wife Suzue, whose Japanese heritage influences many of the flavours found in their recipes. In 2004, they opened their first chocolate shop in Richmond, followed by the opening of their equally successful Belgravia store. Increasing demand for their chocolate and patisserie creations led to a William Curley concession opening in Harrods. William Curley has been awarded Britain's Best Chocolatier by the Academy of Chocolate four times and has won numerous other awards.
