Every once in awhile I find a cookbook that is both engaging enough to read like a book and inviting enough to try some of the recipes. The pages and recipes from “Chocolate A Love Story, 65 Chocolate Dessert Recipes from Max Brenner’s Private Collection” by Max Brenner (artwork avant-garde and amazing by Yonatan Factor) are so mouth-watering that I don’t know which one I like the most or how to make it all without gaining too much weight. Nostalgic dark chocolate cheese crumb cake, Spy-thriller chocolate Black Forest Cake, Heaven-on-earth cocoa tarte tatin… are you drooling yet? Not only does GKC have a SIGNED COPY of Chocolate A Love Story but we will also give you a sneak peak at a recipe in our upcoming Shavuot section next week.

Max Brenner is the famous “Israeli Bald Man” who is a revolutionary in the world of chocolate. For Max, chocolate is associated with different aspects of life and a symbol of contradictory emotions. His quest for passion, romance, and meaning has inspired highly imaginative chocolate recipes and treats. He opened his first tiny chocolate workshop in 1996 where he chatted with customers while mixing and tempering chocolate in an open space. The intimate stories shared in this workshop became the spark for his chocolate creations. Today he is known around the world for his innovative chocolate creations, signature chocolate pizza (the recipe is in the book!), and, let’s not forget, his hug mug hot cocoa (designed to keep your hands warm while drinking rich warm cocoa).

To purchase the book or to try his chocolates (make sure to check and purchase the luscious selections that have the hecksher from Bet Shemesh), go to www.maxbrenner.com [3] or visit his stores nationwide, in Israel, or in Australia.
