Guittard Chocolate Cookbook

by Amy Guittard


“This book brings together the best of the best of our family favorites,” writes Amy Guittard, a fifth-generation member of the family-owned San Francisco-based artisan chocolatier. For the most part, these are recipes that don’t require a chef’s patisserie skills: satisfyingly simple chocolate cookies, brownies, pies, and cakes, all beautifully photographed. There’s chapter for trickier bakes, for those who relish a challenge, too.
