    Book Description
    From Library Journal
    Medrich has written several other cookbooks, but chocolate is her real love, and she returns once again to it here. She had originally intended this to be a holiday cookbook but decided that that idea was too limiting, so she instead categorizes her recipes by season: "robust flavors" for fall (Chocolate Cranberry Bread Pudding), rich and indulgent treats for winter's chill (Very Rich Hot Chocolate), "celebratory" sweets for spring (Apricot Orange Wedding Cakes), and fruit and frozen desserts for summer (Independence Day Sundaes). There are full-page color photographs throughout and useful sections on "Dressing Up Desserts," as well as coverage of ingredients, equipment, and special techniques. For all baking collections.
