The results of Christies painting work from yesterday on the mold I took down.

We made two of the recipes I had created for them to get rid of scrap from the sponge. The first is fudge.

Took a while for the chunks to break down - it will be ground for the next project.

After cooking we added fondant, frappe and vanilla before pouring out.

Gianduja loaf from yesterday - abject failure! Too hard to cut - the milk layers was OK - but the white layer was totally vile. They need to change white chocolate brands.

Lunch out at Brewerie at the old Union Station.

Cheeseburger soup

Mother Clucker for Connie.

Some sort of salad I have forgotten for Andrea.

Veggie burger for Joe

 

 

 

Could see the two servers in a huddle after they brought all the food - realizing they had forgotten to put my order into the kitchen. Guilt brought me the home made chips with horseradish mayo - then finally a chicken caesar for which they did not charge.

Lid to keep the heat in - the rise continues.

I'd like to know more about the sponge toffee, and how you get it thicker than a cell phone. Is that just a parchment-lined cardboard box? How does the slow cooling work?

Yup parchment lined cardboard - there is still a lot of heat in the mass so it continues to rise and stay warm -  end of day they turn on the air-conditioning so that it is cool to cut the next morning.

That's the problem I had with Greweling's PB&Js. I tabled the peanut butter gianduja to temper (this was pre-EZtemper) and poured it over the PdF layer. When I tried to cut it once set, most of the cuts just shattered.

Wonder if extra peanut oil would help? The hazelnut version slices nicely.

That might do it, I haven't tried it since. I started doing my PB&Js as shell molded pieces with actual jelly and peanut butter ganache. If I ever get to a point where I need better shelf life, I assume I'll have to find something to replace the jelly which is why I've kept a close watch on Jim's posts about his piped PdF experiments.
