"I'm a sucker for great cookbooks... The best of the bunch not only feed my inner food geek, but also provide me with guidelines (and sometimes recipes) for creating something new and different. And, if a cookbook is really worth its weight, it's as interesting to read as it is beautiful sitting on the shelf... I'm suspecting that the new America's Test Kitchen cookbook "Everything Chocolate: A decadent collection of morning pastries, nostalgic sweets and showstopping desserts" might well become one of those books." - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
