"Are you looking at the water temp or the chocolate temp? On the Savage, it takes a bit of practice. I don't drop the temp, but rather seed. I can hold temper for at least a day. I love my machines, but it does take a while to learn how to use…"

When is the conference? Unfortunatelly I am still doing it part time, trying to push as hard as my body, time and sanity can handle, I would really love to do this full time, I hope it is going to happen for me soon, been waiting for so long.
I will check the detail on the eg forum, would love to see you.
I don't have a business yet. I work as a nurse, and am hoping to get a business slowly up and running in the next year, focusing on truffles, caramels and toffees. I wasn't aware that Utah has a law that allows you to use your home kitchen. Can you tell me where to get that info? Also, where is Amano located?
