Hello!

 

I am a confectioner/confiseur (don't know how you call it) from Vienna. I work in a small family owned business which produces simple chocolate confections.

I am interested in everything around chocolate. I also own a few books from known chocolatiers like wybauw, notter and greweling. They are very helpful and gave me a good start into the chocolate confections making.

 

I am very happy that i found this site, since there are not much communities about chocolate on the internet. I will give my best to contribute as much as i can and i also hope that i can get as much information as i need. :)

 

kind regards, daniel

Welcome, Daniel!  I am not a maker of confections (I lack the talent, not the desire), but there are lots of them here and I know that I'll enjoy your contributions!
