Hello!

 

I am a confectioner/confiseur (don't know how you call it) from Vienna. I work in a small family owned business which produces simple chocolate confections.

I am interested in everything around chocolate. I also own a few books from known chocolatiers like wybauw, notter and greweling. They are very helpful and gave me a good start into the chocolate confections making.

 

I am very happy that i found this site, since there are not much communities about chocolate on the internet. I will give my best to contribute as much as i can and i also hope that i can get as much information as i need. :)

 

kind regards, daniel

Welcome, daniel!

There are a lot of skilled confectioners on these forums, and they're happy to talk about confections of all types. A number of them are currently in Las Vegas, Nevada (USA) at a Chocolate and Confectionary Workshop, and you can see some of their activities here: http://forums.egulle...-workshop-2014/

You may find yourself interested in the topic titled "Your Daily Sweets: What are you making and baking?" The 2014 topic starts here: http://forums.egulle...d-baking-2014–/


There's also a topic titled "Confections! What did we make?" here: http://forums.egulle...-we-make-2012–/

Of course, there are a lot of other topics in the Pastry and Baking forum, but we have a lot of lively discussion on other food-related topics. Come join in the fun!

Welcome daniel - the chocolate/confectionery folks here on eG are generally helpful and usually friendly.

Welcome, Daniel!  I am not a maker of confections (I lack the talent, not the desire), but there are lots of them here and I know that I'll enjoy your contributions!
