Throughout Maida's nearly 50-year career as a "genius" of baking (New York Times), one thing was constant: her passion for chocolate. She created hundreds of recipes for chocolate cakes, puddings, pies, cookies, and more. Now, Chocolate Is Forever collects her very best, most irresistibly chocolatey delights-including The World's Best Hot Fudge Sauce.
Developed for foolproof baking by anyone, each of these nearly 100 recipes is written with Maida's warm but no-nonsense instructions and carries her guarantee that it will work perfectly every time. With recipes ranging from simple cupcakes and fudgy brownies to decadent flourless cakes, this book is a must-have in every chocolate-lover's kitchen.
Maida Heatter (1916-2019), dubbed "the Queen of Cake" by Saveur, was the author of several classic books on dessert and baking. Her most recent book, Happiness is Baking, was published when she was 102 years old. Heatter was the recipient of three James Beard Foundation awards and inducted into the organization's Hall of Fame.
