Most memorable chocolate experience:
The moment I decided to open a chocolate shop with my father. We were watching food network's chocolate week special, he looked over at me and said, "Do you think you can do that?" I said, "I think I can!"
My favorite chocolate is:
Pralus Mini-Pyramide when enjoyed with a friend. Fun!

Im so impressed you can temper by hand- i will eventually learn but Im not very patient with it, the science/ temps/chemistry are a little too much to handle. Lucky im not trying to be a chocolatier- im happy eating others beautiful creations! Glad you are collecting wrappers too- I have a feeling we will meet others here who do too- its just something i have always done, and i tried to put my philosophy/feelings in words at my profile (revised recently) if you are interested. Pe proud of your hobby/ collection- its really soemthing special and hopefully makes you smile ;)

Hi Mandy,
I read in one of your posts that you took the ecole chocolat course. I have been contemplating doing that. I too am self taught and I have been working with chocolate for more than than ten years now ( mostly making truffles and cakes). I am slowly setting up a small business, getting orders here and there. I was just wondering how much I would benefit from taking the ecole chocolat course. I would appreciate any input from you. Thanks

I am going to be in Nashville at the end of August for the World Pastry Forum and the World Pastry Team Championships. I hope we make an opportunity to meet then (and taste!)

Gorgeous photos, really mouthwatering. Good for you for opening a choc shop, thats a big deal and not easy! Where did you learn the art of choc making? Do you have any tempering tips?

Mandy: I remember that we met last summer at the World Pastry Forum/National Pastry Team Championship. Nice photos of your work, can I suggest that you add titles and descriptions so we know that they are? :: Clay
