  1. Thanks Pastry girl. That's a good idea. I'll give it a try as well.
  2. I bought a copy from Chocolat Chocolat in Montreal. Looking at their website they have them in stock $90 CAD and comes with a mold - bonus Here's the link http://www.chocolat-chocolat.com/home/books-dvd/c378158985/p17171712.html
  3. I am retiring so I am selling a single arm confectionery guitar cutter. Reduced to $3400 CAD. It’s professional quality equipment. It is in great condition. Purchased new from Design & Realization. I used it for cutting square and rectangular truffles which were a nice alternative to the round truffles. They were popular shapes for both weddings and retail. Here's the description from the Design and Realization site: "The Single Chocolate Guitar Cutter is a time saving precision cutting machine that is designed for professional Chocolatiers to cut into precise shapes ganache, praline, jelly, soft caramel, fudge, almond paste, marzipan and more. There is no need to rely on guesswork or individual cutters and you can ensure a clean and fine cut every time you use this confectionery cutting device. NO PLASTIC! The Single Chocolate Guitar Cutter is made from heavy duty anodized aluminum and stainless steel so it is highly durable and easy to clean.” Here’s what I’m selling as a package deal: Confectionery Guitar & 4 Cutting Frames 15 mm, 22.5 mm, 30 mm and 37.5 mm Cart Description from Design & Realization. Cart holds space for "5 guitar cutting frames. It also has a table on the top of the cart for convenient working and the two wheels at the back of the cart make it simple and convenient to move. The cart for chocolate guitar cutter is very lightweight and is also easy to clean; perfect for use in professional kitchens and school culinary laboratories." Ganache frames & Dividers 3 x 15 mm 3 x 19mm 1 x 8 mm 1 x 10 mm 1 x 12 mm 5 x 19 mm dividers 2 x 15 mm dividers 1 x ganache leveler 1 x take-off tray Extra strings and repair tools

    Colored Cocoa Butter

    That's what I thought. I'll see if I can find a pic.

    Colored Cocoa Butter

    I recently saw some molded chocolates. The description given was hand painted with raspberry and apple juice (and cocoa butter I think) as they were very shiny. I like the idea as it's natural unlike colored cocoa butters. Anyone know of this method or used it? I'd be curious what the ratios are.
  7. Beautiful work -how do you get that wonderful textured finish on the cheesecake?
  8. Thanks minas. I have the Grewelling book, but had forgotten about that recipe. I'll give it a try.

    Candy/Confectionery Thermometers

    Does anyone have a favorite candy thermometer when making caramel? I have used Taylor digital and a traditional glass mercury type.
  10. Minas -your citrus jellies look so cute and tasty. Very interested in how you use puree in the banana caramel. I purchased Artisan Caramels by Sandy Arevalo. Lots of interesting flavors but I was disappointed to see she uses banana flavoring instead of real bananas in her recipe. I like to use natural ingredients whenever I can. Would you be willing to share your knowledge of how to use puree in making caramel - ratio puree, cream, sugar, etc and method?
  11. Just wondering if you have the dates for the 2015 conference. Would be interested in the Master Class.

    Frozen Fruit Puree shelf life

    I have several tubs of Boiron fruit puree in my deep freeze. I am wondering what the shelf life is of this puree if kept in freezer.
