$8.19 on Amazon My first bite of Nutella was in a café in Paris and it was wrapped in a crepe. I thought I had died and gone to heaven! I, of course, had never heard of Nutella before and my companions told me only that it was chocolate. I later found out that Nutella is as ubiquitous in Europe as peanut butter is in the U.S.
I brought a jar back with me from that trip and was eventually able to find it in stores here. That was 20 years ago and I have since learned how to make those crepes for myself. My son was raised on it and takes it as a sandwich in his lunchbox or as a snack on toast. I've never ventured to do much else with Nutella so I was intrigued when I saw this cookbook. Oh, the clever ways they have come up with to use Nutella. Everything looks so delicious! Many other people have also enjoyed these recipes and I've also heard comments that the recipes don't feel like the Nutella is just thrown in but complements and enhances the flavors.
So what is it that makes the flavor of Nutella so memorable? It's the perfect combination of chocolate and hazelnuts. I was most familiar with walnuts in baking, which I always found to be a rather harsh flavor, or peanuts as a spread. I found the hazelnut flavor to be very satisfying and smooth. I also really enjoy the texture of the spread itself.
