I've noticed many here are already experienced chocolate makers, so I apologize for the very basic question.
I started my first chocolate training this past Monday and I am absolutely excited about this new world that is opening up for me.
I want to start small, learn slowly and create beautiful, tasty chocolate (like everyone else, I guess). But I am not sure I understand what I really need to get started from home.
What would be the essential tools to get started?
This is what I think I need:
- Couverture chocolate
- Rubber or wooden spatula
- Cocoa powder, cocoa nibs, etc (to cover the truffles, for instance)
What else? Am I missing something critical? I know there is a lot more to it, but I want to get started sooner than later.
