Fruit Puree

Does anyone know how to make fruit puree to make ganache fillings with? Or is it better to buy them in the grocery store? Do grocery stores carry quality fruit purees? Thanks a bunch!

Candy Pads

Does anyone know a U.S. manufacturer who makes candy pads (cushion pads) and can do hot stamping of logos and different colors? Thanks in advance!

Cacao Canoes, Sacks, Bales, Tools, etc.


Does anyone know where I can purchase canoes, tools, or sacks used by ancient Aztecs to cultivate, harvest, transport or harvest cacao? I know it's a long shot, but hoping someone would know, thanks! This is a photo of a cacao canoe I took while at the Bruges Chocolate Museum.

Best wine cooler to store couverture?

Hi, I'm new here at the Chocolate Life. Just wondering how home chefs/chocolatiers store their couverture? I know it has to be stored at around 50-62 degrees Fahrenheit, I guess a wine cooler or cellar is my best bet. Does anyone have a wine cooler they use to store couverture or chocolate at home that they can recommend? Something not too huge or too tiny. Thanks!
