    One delicious little book! I know because I have sampled its many exquisite treats. Adventures in Chocolate is filled with the original recipes of the Geoffroi chocolate shop in London, along with delightful tales of its owners. A most enjoyable read......and a perfect gift for your favorite chocoholic, as well! Susan Malin, Alexandria, VA

    This is the book to read if you like to cook, or you have a sweet tooth, or you love to give gifts you've made or you are interested in how a small business evolves. This readable, charming book offers a view of how a small chocolate truffle shop was founded in London and also provides wonderful truffle recipes for both British and American candy makers. Thank you Joan and Geoffrey for the many gifts found in this delightful book.

    As one who has personally tasted the chocolate delights of Geoffroi, I can attest to the scrumptious quality of these candies. As one who has read the Adventures in Chocolate, I can recommend the book to many chocolate lovers: those who are chocoholics; those who may be venturing into a cottage industry in these times of economic uncertainty, and those who appreciate anecdotes of incidents and personalities that contribute to the joy and success of producing a fine delicacy. Better yet, I would recommend purchasing several copies; then try some of the delicious recipes, and give samples of your best successes, along with a copy of Geoffrey and Joan's book, as gifts to your best friends. Sooner or later one of them may open such a boutique in your neighborhood!

    This is a most delectable read. A bonus, is reading the fun and interesting stories of how 'Geoffroi' came into being and the many British "well knowns" who became fans of this lovely little chocolate shop. I can attest to the deliciousness of these truffles having tasted almost all of those noted in this book. Dee O'Hara - San Jose, California

    What a delightful book - I loved the way the easy to follow recipes are interspersed with amusing and interesting real life stories. They tried to always give their customers what they wanted including on one occasion, placing two very expensive earrings inside two truffles in a box of identical Couintreau truffles. Great present for chocolate lovers.

    Wonderful, delicious, marvelous! I could taste the chocolate as I read and even felt a little like I was in north London watching the whole time.

    What a "delicious" book! You can tell that the authors still feel the excitement they had when you read about their wonderful experiences that led to the testing, tasting and creation of each recipe. The recipes are easy to follow and alot easier to EAT!!

    Can someone who is not a chocaholic find happiness with "Adventures in Chocolate"? Apparently! I am not a cook, yet I find myself tempted to try the recipes which Geoffrey and Joan Hazzan proffer in this wonderful book. It is rare to find a book which opens up a happy world such as "Adventures in Chocolate" does. I picked up the book thinking it would be a good Christmas gift -- and it would be -- but then found that I could not part with it. So, finally, a book which, like chocolate itself, is satisfying, uplifting, a slightly sinful. Fifty Shades of Chocolate?
