Hey All,

Anybody have an idea as to whether home cooking foods with strong odors (bacon, onions, baking-bread, etc.) can affect the flavor of your chocolate, especially if the cooking took place while refining?

I think it would be possible. It is definately the case that the finished product is sensitive to picking up strong odours during storage, and i always avoid cooking anything strong smelling when working with chocolate as it can be affected. Haven't actually got to refine my own yet so can't say categorically..there could be other factors involved.

Thanks Cheryl,

I was thinking this might be the case, but wasn't sure.  I figure other people's experiences like yours could help me confirm my suspicions.  (Sorry for taking so long to respond.  It's been a busy couple of weeks.)
