Anyone who loves chocolate will be absolutely blown away by Babka, Boulou, & Blintzes: Jewish Chocolate Recipes from around the World, a compilation of Jewish chocolate recipes gathered from famous cooks around the world by Michael Leventhal. This book is a cut above, and includes fantastic, mouthwatering recipes along with beautiful photographs. The recipes are, of course, kosher, but will be enjoyed by everyone, whether Jewish or not. Leventhal has included a good variety of Cookies, Bars, & Brownies, Cakes, Loaves, & Tarts, Hot & Cold Desserts, Bonbons, Bites & After-Dinner Delights, and even Savory Dishes & Drinks.

Not only are the recipes fabulous, they are written in a traditional form and are easy to follow. Anyone, whether a beginning or advanced cook, will be able to easily follow these recipes and turn out picture perfect dishes. The main difficulty will be for readers to find the perfect recipe to make at any given time. There are dozens of unique, traditional, and classic recipes, and, frankly there isn’t even one that doesn’t sound good. There is something for everyone here, and before preparing even one recipe, most will have a growing queue which will keep them cooking and baking for months.

This is definitely one of the best books for chocoholics everywhere. Anyone who is lucky enough to own it will use it often. The mouthwatering photographs will tempt even the most dedicated dieter. Unfortunately, this cookbook is way overpriced and some who want it won’t be able to afford it.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
