Have an extra copy of Ramon Morato's chocolate book

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I know how expensive these gorgeous books are through the usual channels. I happen to have an extra copy thanks to a good friend and want to offer it to anyone interested.

I listed it on ebay, here is a link (please edit it, if there is a way to get referral fees for egullet, I only found this feature for Amazon):

Ramon Morato's Chocolate book on ebay

As far as I can tell the content is identical, same number of pages, same content on the pages I checked (used random numbers). It has German language where my other one has Spanish.

I am familiar with the Morato book but have not actually seen it. Is it primarily technique or recipes, or a mixture?

Its everything chocolate, not just bonbons. There is the usual prologue on how chocolate and tempering work then sections on: 

breakfast & snacks

drinking chocolate

jams & creams

Cakes 

individual cakes

other desserts 

chocolates (bonbons, truffles, etc)

restaurant desserts & petit fours. 

 

I have the english/Spanish version, 2nd edition in excellent condition except for a small gouge on the spine. I’d have to look up what I paid for it, but would entertain offers.

Thanks for the helpful list. Just a rough guess: about how many recipes for chocolates does it contain? For someone who doesn't make the other things listed, how useful is it beyond Greweling et al.?

I would say it's about 150 pages pf chocolate - bonbons, truffels etc as pastrygirl noted down.

 

Here's a picture of the index.

 

Not sure how useful it would be if you already have Greweling, but I like it a lot. The chapter about mousses is amazing. Reading about technics etc, for bonbons - I think that Coppel have Morató as one of her main inspirations.

His book is great as it explains the balance of recipes a bit mote in detail and in percentages to follow than Grewling does

      For my purposes I have mastered the art of packaging chocolate bars, but search as I might I cannot find an eGullet thread or any information on packaging chocolate eggs.  I ask as I have an egg mold in transit.  Assuming I can successfully fabricate an egg, how can I wrap or package it?  All I can think of is cellophane.
       
      I've seen pictures so I know some of you are making eggs.  Do not deny it.  When I was little and still celebrated holidays the neighborhood candy establishment sold eggs in windowed cardboard boxes with cellophane grass*.  That was the early 1950's.  Is this still the state of the art?
       
       
      *cellophane grass tastes terrible.  And the ubiquitous coconut cream filling not much better.

      I am searching for a natural source of food colorings, to tint buttercream, & use in chocolate work. I don't like commercial FC, it is synthetic and toxic to boot. Has anyone found a good source/vendor who has naturally derived colorings

      Hi there,
      i am moving into our lab next week so excited!!!! I have one million questions but the ones popping up in my head are
      1) If I have 6 moulded bonbon recipes to airbrush, fill and cover and 6 bars recipes to make for our production,how do you organise production? Can someone give me an example of their weekly plan am and pm plan just to get an idea? I have a Selmi 😀. 
      2) how many bonbons and bars should I produce just before we launch? I have my budgets and projections but you know those first weeks God knows how you will do! Should I be freezing from the beginning? And what is the ideal packaging way to freeze bonbons? 
       
      Thank you so appreciate it!
