"Go to the Patent website like Dan said, but I think you're looking at a big headache that isn't really worth it, besides the costs. Most chocolatiers will share information and advice with others when asked (without divulging their recipes…"

"I am in Oregon also. To certify your home kitchen from what I understand, NO PETS ALLOWED in the same building unless you can shut the kitchen off from the rest of the dwelling. Check with your county inspector and/or FDA. I'm over here in…"

Aldona Koppenhaver replied to PHLChocolate's discussion Chocovision MiniRev- Help needed in the group Startup Central
"Does it have a reset button on it somewhere? If it does maybe it just needs to be reset. Are one of the buttons stuck? Maybe when a button was pushed it didn't release all the way."

Aldona Koppenhaver replied to Deborah's discussion antique chocolate moulds, HELP! in the group Startup Central
"Would love to see a picture of the molds, they sound interesting. If you know somebody that is mechanically-inclined, maybe they could build you a small spinning machine for them. If you have a shop with a window, what a great attention-getter. If…"

"I did some experimenting with a silicone mold I purchased to make carmel centers. I put tempered white chocolate in them twice, no shine either time. So I believe the shine issue has to do with it being a silicone mold. If you use polycarbonate…"

Aldona Koppenhaver replied to Jennifer's discussion Custom packaging in the group Startup Central
"Try GlerupRevere. I'm just starting out and have been checking out packaging. So far, I will probably be ordering most of my packaging thru them. They are great about sending samples, they also offer hot stamping."

Most memorable chocolate experience:
Watching my mom (when I was little) coating homemade candy one at a time with an old-fashion hat pin. I made her recipes for the first time while taking my chocolatier course (they hadn't been made since she passed away in '87). They tasted just like I remember which brought a smile to my face.
My favorite chocolate is:
Callebaut
