Chantelle Giardina replied to Clay Gordon's discussion Examining a Mast Brothers Assertion
"Brad anyone might think my reply was a slight to your company and chocolate- and it wasn't. I have never tried your product, and I wasn't even comparing you Mast Brothers at all. I actually think most of their chocolates are grainy and…"

Chantelle Giardina replied to George Trejo's discussion Freezing Chocolates
"Hey guys, We have been planning on doing this process for a while now. We just need a freezer that doesn't get opened much. Another chocolatier said that it would be detrimental to the finished product. I'm curious to see how big the boxes…"

Chantelle Giardina replied to Andy Ciordia's discussion Chocolate Drinking Machine Recommendations
"Great recommendations people! Instead of starting a new thread, (which I might do later anyway) I thought I would ask all of you experts here. We have a small chocolate & patisserie boutique. We make everything there from scratch. Anyway, we…"

Chantelle Giardina commented on Clay Gordon's group Chocolate Down Under
"Capital idea! It's high time people realise that we do appreciate and understand the marvels of chocolate and we're not all into that purple wrapper vegetable oil ridden rubbish. It is fair to say that Australaisians really know wine and…"

Most memorable chocolate experience:
