Every day from February 1-14, food bloggers in the BlogHer Publishing Network are sharing their very favorite chocolate recipes -- from chocolate gravy (!) to fondue, cookies, and cake. Sign up to get 14 Days of Chocolate in your inbox, and see all the chocolate in the series.
David Lebovitz baked professionally in the San Francisco Bay Area for nearly twenty years before packing up and moving to Paris. He worked at Chez Panisse in Berkeley for many years, training with Alice Water, Lindsey Shere, and a team of very talented chefs and bakers.
David is the author of six books focusing on baking, and spends his times testing and creating recipes, as well as writing about life as an American pastry chef in Paris. His book, The Sweet Life in Paris, was a finalist for an IACP literary award.
He launched www.davidlebovitz.com in 1999, chronicling his travails and recipes, and when blogging software became widely available, his site became a full-on blog in 2005. Due to his hungry readers, he is forced to spend an inordinate amount of time ingesting chocolates, cheese, charcuterie, pastries, croissants, and French wine.
David's favorite chocolate recipe is for this chocolate sauce:
"I've made, and eaten, a lot of chocolate sauce in my life, so I feel confident in saying that this one is the absolute best. Incredibly shiny with the bold flavor of bittersweet chocolate, it's easy to make and goes with just about anything. It's my go-to sauce Try it ladled over ice cream, or use it as a dip for your favorite brownie!"
