Chocolate Cookbook Blends Food With Design
"How To Kill Yourself With Chocolate" is based on the subtle toxin Theobromine, which is commonly found in cocoa
Attention chocoholics, culinary explorers & food eccentrics: What happens when you combine science, art and humor in the kitchen? Creative duo Martina Lang and Valentine Ammeux put that experiment to the ultimate test, creating a chocolate cookbook about the most heavenly way to enter the afterlife called “How to Kill Yourself with Chocolate.” Through extensive research, the Masters of Arts graduates learned about the subtle toxin Theobromine, commonly found in cocoa, which is lethal in sufficient quantities. They then produced a cookbook that combines thirty recipes comprised of nearly 8 kilograms of chocolate (including lavender truffles, lava muffins and chocolate whisky cocktails) partnered with surreal photographs.
