Death by Chocolate... The Last Word on a Consuming Passion by Marcel Desaulniers
was 16 when I saw Marcel Desaulniers
on cable TV. He was making something with chocolate and I was so
utterly fascinated that I went on the subway (by myself) and bought his
book, with money that I had been saving for something else.
Then a few years back, I lost my entire library to a severe flood and I
realized that this was one of the books I had to get another copy of,
otherwise, I would forever regret it. Thank goodness I found one!
Today, I (finally) made a batch of the
Chocolate Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies that's in the first few
pages of the book. I'd always planned to make a batch of these cookies but it always got pushed back. Now I wish I had made them sooner!
These cookies are THE most delicious cookies I have ever tasted!!!
I ate 2 giant cookies... with cold milk! within 10 minutes of them emerging from the oven!
(and I don't even like chocolate, or milk!!!!)
And the little girl? She looked at me with so much admiration and said: Mommy, you make everything so delicious!
Now I know why the book is called Death by Chocolate!
