Credited with popularizing chocolate truffles in American, Alice Medrich has been writing, teaching and influencing chefs, chocolatiers and home cooks, since 1976 when she opened her first shop, Cocolat, in Berkeley California. She was one of the first chefs to taste and work with Scharffenberger Chocolate two decades later.  Alice will discuss the evolution of chocolate and our use of it over the last 40 years, how self-made chefs  (she is one) and chocolatiers change the rules and a new American Chocolate maker caused chaos in the kitchen.  Alice will share her approach to creativity and cookbooks, why she is adamant that chocolate in recipes be called for by cacao percentage, and cocoa by style—and how to make any recipe work using chocolates with difference cacao percentages
