My book “Je fais mon chocolat maison” (I make my own chocolate) published by Solar and prefaced by Christophe Michalak came out in the middle of a confinement… It is currently unavailable on several bookstore platforms, but as of May 11, you will be able to order it from your usual bookstore. On 160 pages, I tell you everything to be able to make it at home from the bean to the bar, in all its forms: dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, vegan milk chocolate, without sugar, with green tea, with raspberries, and even chocolate without chocolate but with coffee! But also chocolates filled with praline and hazelnut or pistachio spreads, including homemade Nutella and even gianduia! Of course I explain everything about tempering, suggesting several methods at each step, depending on your equipment. I have developed two almost magical formulas to make all the chocolates in the world. Just put in what you like and the recipe comes out. Finally, I give you a lot of recipes of tablets, and desserts (cookies, madeleines, millefeuille, canelés, hot chocolate etc.)…
There are three parts to the book:
- 1-Everything you need to know to make your own chocolate
- 2-Recipes for bars and filled chocolates, spreads
- 3-The recipes of desserts with chocolate
With this book you will be able to make homemade chocolate from the bean to the bar, but also to make bars without having to make your own chocolate, using branded chocolate, because you will know everything about tempering. I wanted it to be as complete as possible! All this in a beautiful book put in pictures by Claire Curt and prefaced by Christophe Michalak himself! I invite you to discover more below!
You can order it at your bookstore or on the following platforms: (click for a direct link!). It is priced at 15,95€:
I offer you the first part of the book, the most technical, in 5 videos that you can find in the ‘homemade chocolate’ tab at the top of the blog menu. Here is the introduction. Next week, I’ll post the real first video!
