BOOK REVIEW – RED VELVET & CHOCOLATE HEARTACHE…

Red Velvet Chocolate Heartache

Red Velvet & Chocolate Heartache, is written by Harry Eastwood, the author of the ‘Cook Yourself Thin’ Books. It’s available at Amazon and other good book shops.

I knew straight away after realising who the author was that I would love this Cookery Book.

She says she ‘loves’ cakes (so do I) from light, fluffy Victoria Sponge to dark and delicious Forbidden Chocolate Brownies (absolutely, now I am really excited).

In Red Velvet & Chocolate Heartache, she has brought ingredients from her vegetable garden to make the cakes natural and healthy. For instance she has a Ginger Sticky Toffee Pudding which is made with Parsnips!!! and Orange Squash Cupcakes made with Butternut Squash.

Well I am definitely going to make cakes that are ‘Good for you’ and with some of these secret ingredients I am sure she will have a massive following. Talk about ‘have your cake and eat it’.
I’m off to try the Cupcakes. It’s available from Amazon and other high street book shops.

11 WEEKS TO CHRISTMAS SO IT’S TIME TO GET COOKING…

Mrs Hopes Chocolate Box

I chose this fantastic book to inspire you all to make your handmade foodie gifts.

This is a gorgeous chocolate book where Miss Hope presents 50 of her favourite chocolate recipes, such as Passion Fruit Truffles and Sea Salt Caramels, Walnut Whips, Chocolate Ginger Creams and Chocolate Truffle Cake.

Like the confectionery and chocolate Hope and Greenwood sell in their shops and through their website, everything in the book will recommend the use of the best ingredients, including fresh cream, butter and natural vanilla. So, don’t buy this book if you are on a diet 🙂

Miss Hope will also be treating you to her irresistible titbits and chocolatey anecdotes which are guaranteed to make you chuckle.

It’s beautifully designed and lavishly photographed, Miss Hope’s Chocolate Box would make a perfect gift.

CHOCOLATE MAGIC…

chocolate
Chocolate Magic by Kate Shirazi is a collection of chocolate recipes.
 
White chocolate meringue pie and chocolate ‘fondant’ cupcakes are recipes everyone needs in their recipe book, there’s even a chocolate Martini.
 
There’s an intro about ingredients, and the author reminds readers about Fair Trade Chocolate and free range eggs.

It’s full of beautiful pictures to tempt your taste buds into cooking with chocolate.

With five chapters listed as ‘Little Treats’ , like truffles and fudge, ‘Desserts’, ‘Pastries and Breads’, yes ! The Best Chocolate Tart and Chocolate Buns, ‘Cakes and Cookies’, and ‘Drinks and Sauces’, so something for everyone.

What I would call a little book of loveliness.
