We're excited to announce the arrival of our first cookbook, There's Always Room for Chocolate! The book is a culmination of our 11 years of business with all the recipes we've all come to love—and some new ones, too!
The Chocolate Room has become a place of pilgrimage for chocolate lovers from near and far, thanks to its simple mission: to create treats that bring back those original childhood memories of the pure joy of chocolate. Its chefs have a knack for reconstructing a classic American recipe in ways that improve on the original.
The Chocolate Room creates confections and dishes that are at once both simply delicious and fun to eat, while still being painstakingly made by hand using high quality ingredients and incredible amounts of technique. Their serious approach to crafting fine chocolates and desserts while not taking themselves too seriously is probably the biggest reason to love The Chocolate Room. Well, that and their mint chocolate chip ice cream. — Adam Richman, author of Straight Up Tasty and America the Edible, and food and travel host for Travel Channel and NBC
Their showstopping Chocolate Layer Cake, for instance, is the cake all other chocolate cakes dream of being; it’s made with a blackout pudding filling, three different kinds of chocolate, and a custardy ganache frosting. The book is filled with similar new twists that express the slightly irreverent and creatively whimsical spirit for which Brooklyn has become known: Chocolate Caramel Matzo, Chocolate Cuatro Leches Cake, and Chocolate Stout Gingerbread.
I've worked with The Chocolate Room for more than a decade. High quality and artistry have been the foundation of their success since day one. They take all-American chocolate desserts to the next level. If I had to pick my last meal, it would start with an appetizer of their mint chocolate chip ice cream, followed by a main course of their caramel popcorn, and then of course, their world-famous chocolate cake to finish. — Fritz Knipschildt, author of Chocopologie
Recipes reveal the secret tips behind signature favorites in every category from cakes and puddings to pies and cookies. Confections are geared to be achievable in the home: S’mores bars, Rocky Road mounds, and Cookie Chip Chocolates. The book also features informative primers on important techniques—including tempering chocolate, whipping cream and eggs, and assembling a cake.
There’s Always Room for Chocolate is set to become the new essential cookbook for all things chocolate.
A restaurant devoted solely to chocolate? And it's beyond good? And now they are sharing their secrets? I am ecstatic. The Chocolate Room's chocolate layer cake alone is to die for. Actually, I die and go to chocolate heaven each time I walk into their place of pure chocolate joy. — Rosie Perez, author of Handbook for an Unpredictable Life
