“I am so glad Denise has once again shared her love of chocolate and years of experience as a pastry chef in Volume two of her dessert collection. You will recognize many old favourites with delicious new twists and of course, all packed with lots of chocolate. Denise’s “CHEF TALK”, at the beginning of each recipe, reflects her “let’s have fun with this” attitude and gives confidence to even the most timid home baker. Novice and experienced dessert makers will appreciate the learning tips section where basic baking techniques are discussed. The easy to follow recipes are made even more versatile with further suggestions in the “What else can I do with this recipe” section. A chapter devoted to basic crusts, fillings, and glazes provide the ground work for future dessert creations from your own imagination. “
