Chocolate at Home --- by --- Will Torrent. There are some things I will never do: plumb my own house; do dental work on my wife with a Dremel tool; neuter my cat; raise bees; race pigeons or make chocolates even though Torrent’s book would have us believe anyone can do it: a sort of pralines for dummies but with better art work. When it comes to pastry, Torrent is no slouch. All we need to do is read the blurbs on the cover. That explains his derring-do. But, ok, let’s give him this one and admit there might be one or two out there, petit point specialists; builders of ships in bottles and philatelists who won’t be intimidated and who will try their hand at Raspberry, redcurrant and rose truffles; or Thyme and honey truffles; or even Whiskey and ginger barrels. All I’d like to sample. But make? After I’d buy all the moulds, the special chocolate, the marble slabs for marbling, I’m afraid all I’d have to show for my efforts would be a chocolate encrusted kitchen. For my skill level, however, there are a few recipes I’d like to try: Chocolater cranachan ‘pavlova-dose’; Chocolate angel cake; and Milk chocolate, prune and Armagnac stolen. The recipes, explicit for the novice are presented clearly and concisely. Beautifully illustrated, Chocolate at Home is bound to inspire many budding choclatiers, but for the masses, I'm guessing not so much.
