Yeah - why can't I get that shiny on the pics I'm taking for the Dubrovik course?

 


Guess I'll have to look back through those pictures again... I thought you were. 

It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

Host's note: this post and the immediate responses were moved from the Andrey Dubovic online classes topic.

 

 

Good day, long time reader first time posting here. I'm curious to know if my technique is similar to Andery's. I've never taken any course from him but I was experimenting the last few days trying to get a similar result! Would you say it's similar or different? 

Thanks kindly!

To answer that question, we'll need to see a whole tray of chocolates all showing the same technique and finish level & a shot with one cut open. It does look interesting. Perhaps it truly belongs in the chocolates with a showroom finish thread.   😉

It looks a bit different - looks more like the latest Vincent Vallee instagram post I saw.

Beautiful work. Do you share your technique, or is it a trade secret?

Looks pretty damn good to me! I'm curious to know what you are lighting with that gives that very distinctive pattern on the bonbon?

Just got it this week it's a little light box with leds strips. For shine, leds combined with natural light are best and of course correct cocoa butter tempering is essential too.

It's a work in progress and I do teacher classes but for the minimalist home hobby cooks/chefs maybe in the never future. All my work is handmade at home with the most basic equipment, i think most would be surprised, thank you so much!

Good day,

I had a chance to do another batch of chocolate today with that technique that I've been working on. Here's a shot, these are solar flares, no filters, no effects only light boxes and my phone. ☺

The light and the tripod almost makes it look like a parachute on there.

      Here's a chocolate fail for you - how on earth do molds end up like this? 
      I went to a cooking school liquidation sale this morning, was expecting used equipment but not quite so abused!

       
      I did pick through and found several that looked in good shape.  They can toss this one in the recycle bin!

      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

      Hello eGForums,
       
      I'm curious if anyone has purchased these ganache and caramel ruler bars (https://www.tcfsales.com/products/658-ganache-and-caramel-ruler-bars-set-of-2-ea/) from TCF before or has experience with this company? Are they a reputable company?
       
      It costs $87.96 (not including shipping) to purchase 4 stainless steel square bars, measuring 1/2" x 1/2" x 15" L, which seems like a reasonable price relative to other companies. Correct me if I'm wrong. Does anyone suggest other companies to purchase bars from?
       
      On a related topic, I know that a possibly more affordable alternative would be to visit a local metal fabricator and purchase metal bars from them. My concern is purchasing bars that are made from an alloy and finish that is 'food-safe'. Does anyone know what grade/alloy and finish of stainless steel is 'food-safe'? Does anyone know what grade/alloy and finish of aluminum is 'food-safe'?

      Several of Greweling's recipes call for the use of a round piping tip. I'm not familiar with what sizing system he's using. When he says to use a "no. [integer] round tip", what does the [integer] correspond to in millimeters or inches? For example, what is the diameter of a no. 3 round tip used by Greweling?
