“La Dolce Vita” by Isabel Coe
Sweet Dreams and Chocolate Memories
Hardcover, 246 pages.
Published by Simon and Schuster 2005
Starting with tales of her grandmother's exploits in Switzerland and Florence, Isabel's animated account progresses through Europe and the Second World War right through to the present day, with the author and her young family's recent relocation to Australia. Illustrated with b/w photographs of the people, and hand-drawn sketches of the places, that provided inspiration for the original recipes, this is a charming book. Each of the mouth-watering recipes featured throughout the text is unique, either because of its unusual blend of ingredients, its historical, personal or geographical interest, or its outstanding quality.
Isabel Coe’s La Dolce Vita is a rich and engaging narrative, the story of a family expressed through their shared and continuing love of chocolate. Remarkable anecdotes are intertwined with an abundance of sumptuous chocolate recipes passed down through four generations of women. Whether it’s her great grandmother's nutty Weinacht Guezi or her grandmother's chestnut jam, her mother’s rich, rum-laced Chocolate Mousse or Isabel’s own extravagant Saffron-infused Mendiants with Crushed Pepper and Edible Gold Leaf, there is something in the alchemy of grating, melting, and mixing chocolate that sets it apart from all other forms of cooking.
About the Author: Isabel Coe is a former Assistant Producer with the BBC, a freelance features and news journalist, and a chocolate devotee.
