  1. I made these muffins this evening. They are gluten and sugar free AND they came out really tasty! On the left is Mango, Apricot and Pine Nut with Maple syrup glaze and the others are with crushed Cocoa Nibs (Valrhona)
  2. These are what I call Chocolate Health Bars (ie an excuse to stuff myself with chocolate while convincing myself they are giving me nutrients, minerals etc. LOL) They contain anything I can get my hands on (eg, nuts, seeds, cocoa nibs..) that is remotely edible, with a white chocolate orange layer sprinkled with 2 types of chocolate and Cocoa nibs (im addicted to them)
  3. Hi Lior, where did you buy your packaging? Thanks
  4. It's different as Rob said but I don't know that I'd call it irreplaceable (Rob didn't either). In my opinion, it depends what you're going to do with it. If you're using it as a finishing salt then you will probably enjoy the texture from the FDS more than the usual grocery store sea salts and may enjoy the taste more depending on the flavors it's competing with (meaning you may not even notice a taste difference against strongly flavored backgrounds). If it's to be used as an ingredient where texture is no longer a factor you may or may not find search out the FDS worthwhile. I've used FDS in caramel and I've used "fine sea salt" in caramel and I can't claim I noticed any remarkable difference but the same salts as finishing salts on chocolates (or anything else for that matter) are very obviously not the same. ← I was taking for granted that you could read my mind and knew that I meant that I want to use it as a finishing salt lol! thanks for the explanation
  5. alanamoana: thanks for the welcome and the answer, I had a feeling that the book was exactly that. Hoped I could get another chocolate book for a teeny amount of money gfron1; i had a feeling it was irreplaceable, Ill just have to buy it I suppose, sigh. Thanks for the info Kerry Beal: Ive seen it on sale in a few places, amazon sells it but its unavailable. Here is a link for a uk bookshop, you could try there http://www.whsmith.co.uk/CatalogAndSearch/...0470100059.html
  6. Hello Ive ordered Chocolates and Confections and am so excited I feel sick! Ive seen the following book "Chocolates and Confections Instructor's Manual" and would be grateful if someone could tell me what this is. Also, what is the difference in flavour between fleur de sel and sea salt? As Im new Id just like to introduce myself quickly. I have been making chocolates/truffles/pralines/bonbons as a hobby for over 20 years and am starting out to make them professionally. This site is pure gold and you are all wonderful, im honoured to be a part of this community
