Chocolate Education

Hello Everyone!I am Nancy Sobel from Long Island, NY.  I have been interested in chocolate since I was a child and have been making chocolates etc. for presents for many years now.  I am starting to think of it as a happier career choice.  I have enrolled in the chocolate intensive at ICE in NYC.  Has anyone here taken the course?  I am thinking of following it up with the Ecole Chocolat.  Any thoughts/suggestions?Warmly,Nancy SobelSee More

Her parents kindly sent us fresh Belgian chocolate truffles every time they passed through New York. They were the most amazing things I had ever tasted. I always loved chocolate and used to melt semi-sweet chocolate chips with unsweetened chocolate to make my own dark chocolate before I really ever knew it existed.
My favorite chocolate is:
I am still searching.
