What time should we get to the college Saturday morning?

8:30. There will be breakfast stuff so no need to eat first.

I have asked Chris Hennes to send out a PM with my cell number and e-mail on it.

Wonderful! So looking forward to this, glad this week is finally here!

Mobile phone woes probably resolved!

Thanks for all the tips. I have two unlocked GSM handsets; at least one should be compatible with the PetroCanada Mobility system, which looks like the best budgetary option for me.

I don't know the number yet, of course, but should have something to exchange once we all get together.

I'll arrive at my hotel in Niagara Falls proper (too good a deal to pass up for the Garden Inn) on Thursday evening. I very much want to go on the ChocolateFX tour; is the plan just to meet there at 10:30?

In a similar vein, I'll have to have dinner Friday, and will happily join if there's a group. Left to my own devices I'll probably plump for The Merchant Ale House.

Kerry, I can bring some ingredients if you think they might be useful: feuilletine, hazelnut praline paste, yuzu marmalade, some raspberry compound flavouring, semi-sweet truffle shells, invert sugar (I bought a 5-kilo bucket a while ago).

I have more than I can use of all of these ingredients, so would be glad to bring them along if you think we can experiment with them. Please let me know.

Turns out we have feuilletine and praline paste thanks to callebaut - a couple less things you'll need to drag along!

Yup - but make it 10 for ChocolateFX.

We'll probably figure out Friday dinner sometime Friday!

Ok, perfect! A lighter load sounds good, especially since I now have another kind of "luggage" to carry around. :smile:

What room we are meeting in for the show and tell?

Ok - so ChocolateFX at 10 am, dinner when we get around to it, Show and Tell at 7:30 in the evening in the Walden Room at the hotel. BYOB - but sneak it in! And bring a tumbler from your room. I shall endeavour to remember to bring a corkscrew.

I have the finalized menu for Saturday dinner from Dave - still no idea how much we are paying for it though! I think around $40 each unless the meat costs are a whole lot higher than my gestimates.

Mario Pingue - assorted charcuterie platter (these guys make the world's most amazing prosciutto)

Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup (he was threatening to make a different soup - I wouldn't let him!)

Roast Prime Ribs of Beef au Jus

Roast Ontario Leg of Lamb with mint sauce

Roast Capon with Cranberry Sauce

Oven Roasted Yukon Gold Potatoes

Seasonal Veg

Salads - Caesar, Tomato, Tarragon

Keith Ellis's (New Broom) Special Bread with Fresh Butter

Assorted Pickles and Olives

Assorted Cheese, fruit, crackers and nuts

Dessert by Chef Storm (he mentioned something with passion fruit and dacquoise)

I'm so excited and nervous at the same time!

I won't be able to make it for the ChocolateFX tour. I hope to be there for the show and tell.

So we start at 8:30 both morning, and do we get a break for lunch? If so, at what time? And what time will be the Saturday dinner?

I'm only asking because I'll be traveling with a family member and she is only attending the dinner ( therefore taking the car), so I need to tell her what the schedule is like.

      Hello! I'm fairly new to this site so I don't know if my search was weak. I'm trying to find a way to make Mandarin orange puree at home, but I couldn't find anything even similar in the forum. I am a home cook, but I have been making chocolate bonbons and other confections for over 4 years (intermitantly). It is too expensive for me to purchase this online- not because of the price of the puree, but the cost of shipping makes it prohibative. The recipes I've seen online are all differant and don't seem to be what I need. 
      I would love any help with this! I look forward to hearing and learning from those who have much, much more experience than me. Thanks!

      A quite unusual take on the favorite American chocolate bar: click

      Help! I am an amateur and make chocolate truffles, bonbons, and caramels for friends and family. I made some soft caramel for filling molded bonbons. The flavor and consistency are fine, but the caramel is filled with bubbles. I don't know how to get the air bubbles out, and am concerned using it in my molded chocolates. I would like to know if it is okay to use. I have been making confections for about four years and this is the first time this has happened. I would really appreciate any help! I'm new to the forum and don't know anyone yet.

      I am making molded bunnies for Easter and I am finding that the
      necks are cracking and the head breaks away from the body. I have noticed that the neck is not as thick as the rest of the bunny. Total grams for this bunny is 200.
      Does anyone have any suggestions on how to rectify this? Oh yeah I didn't mention that after pouring into molds I place in the refridgerator.
      Any suggestions are welcome!
      Cheers

      I couldn't think of a better way to word that! 
       
      I'm experimenting with adding a very small amount of cocoa butter decoration onto bars I'm making and am not sure whether I should heat the moulds up with a hair dryer as I would for completely bare moulds or just abandoning this step. I would avoid blowing directly onto where the cocoa butter is as much as possible. Thoughts?
