is experiencing a chocolate renaissance, and the epicenter is in the
San Francisco Bay Area, where Ghirardelli has long been the
standard-bearer for great chocolate.
Domingo Ghirardelli first began making chocolate drinks for miners
during the Gold Rush. In the more than 150 years since, the
chocolatiers who have carried on the company's grand tradition have
made Ghirardelli the leading premium manufacturer in the country.
Growing consumer demand for higher-quality cacao and specialized
chocolate products prompted the experts at Ghirardelli to revise this
collection of classic cookies, bars, cakes, and drinks. The recipes
range from simple sweets to show-stopping desserts, while a special
section on hosting a chocolate party comes just in time for holiday
baking and entertaining.
