"There are no recommended standard angles for food or for the number of light sources. Often, there is a very large softbox (diffused light source) which is designed to mimic a natural (i.e., sun coming through a high north window). Lights are…"

My Chocolate Covered World

I love to make fancy chocolate decorations and just for fun, I started experimenting with the creative side of chocolate, playing around with artists techniques and applying them to chocolate, then taking my creations to parties, giving them as gifts etc.

I'm a professional videographer, and decided to start a chocolate youtube channel and make silly instructional videos of my discoveries called The Chocolate Addict. I got a great response and a few of my videos got featured on youtube.

This lead to making instructional chocolate decorating DVDs ( I have 2 ) and well, I guess the rest is history.

Chocolate Decorating Classes, Instructional Videos & Lip-Smacking Romps

Posted on September 4, 2010 at 9:00pm 0 Comments

Greetings Chocolate Fiends !
I teach chocolate decorating classes for the home chef in the San Francisco Bay Area, sell instructional DVDs and offer lip-smacking chocolate home parties for every occasion.

I have several demos coming up including locations such as Bloomingdales in San Francisco and Dreager's in both San Mateo and Blackhawk and I'm available for hire for holiday chocolate decorating demos in the San Fran area…
