For those of you bringing chocolate to Vegas: how are you transporting it? 

Planning to put the chocolates in my carry on luggage... need to see what will fit best. Packaging will include candy cups and candy pads (with the possible addition of bubble wrap).

I need to write a personal check to Honey Salt first thing in the morning for our meal, so last chance to add or delete.  The bill per person is $51.24 which includes the meal, non-alcoholic drinks, tax and gratuity.  The base meal price is $40.  Please be prepared to bring cash or check (I trust you all to give me a check) for reimbursement next week.  If you want to pay me by credit card we can do it through my Square account but I'll add 2.75% to cover my fees.  Sound good?

I'd like to get a list of the folks going to the Jinju airbrush demo on Friday from 3-5.  This is included for participants, guests, spouses.  Those of us in the afternoon masters class won't be able to attend, but she does some amazing work, and I'm certainly jealous that I won't be there to shop.  So please note below if you WILL be attending this demo.  Thanks.   http://jinjuchocolates.com/

Best wishes to all as you make your way to the workshop! I confess to a little wistfulness, but I truly haven't grown enough on my own to really benefit from another one just yet. I've been making a little more time for candy, so we'll see what next year brings.


For now: Viva!

Little surprises 'round every corner, but nothing dangerous

      It's time to start planning the next Chocolate and Confectionery Workshop. 
      The 2015 Workshop is planned (again) for the Northern Virginia (Washington DC suburb) area.  I'm working with a friend to help me out this year.  We are working on obtaining the Stratford Culinary School again for the conference and hope to have the location approved and locked down in the near future.
      I have a guest instructor lined up that everyone will truly enjoy, but until we have contracts in place, I'm not letting that cat out of the bag. 
      We also have tentatively lined up a Sugar demo for Sunday morning for those that would be interested in that aspect.
      This is just to announce that there will be a 2015 conference, so please start letting me know if you plan on coming (and/or are interested in joining us).  Further details and information (costs/dates/etc) will be announced as we finalize them.  When you indicate your interest would you also please let us know if you would be interested in a "Masters" class, similar to what was arranged for the 2014 Conference?  If we obtain enough interest in such a class we need to assure we can get the kitchen space for an additional day - please don't forget that would also incur an extra added expense for those attending the Masters Class.
