From Seattle I have flown to LA for a class at Guittard with Paul Young, UK based chocolatier of water ganache fame.

 

I'm sharing a room with @Chocolot and in the am will meet up with @RobertM and @Gwbyls

 

I have nothing in the way of pics so far, @Chocolot has pics but is asleep - so in the am we'll get some more pictures going on this thread.

We each enjoyed a Pork belly taco. Messy and delicious.

Then, it was off to Grand Central market in downtown. We had to walk around to find room to eat again at Eggslut. This is my Egg salad. The other two got the Eggslut—soft poached egg over mashed potatoes with slices of baguette. 7002EB17-E1FF-473B-B098-21864757059C.thumb.jpeg.e71b6c27fe5ae8f57015254ca262bfae.jpeg

 

Then it was back to the hotel for a meet up with Bob and his wife Barb.

It's amazing to me that the Domenique Ansel in LA has cronuts just sitting around like that...  here in NYC, there's still a line for them in the morning, and they sell out every day!

We were early. No line this time. Only allowed to buy 2.

Does anybody know if this is related the same principle as Herve This' chocolate chantilly (which predates the water ganache)? Just curious.

Lunch was amazing......

Fresh baked bread, charcuterie, pickled vegetables, turkey neck Terrine, fresh salad and soup.  Our host, Donald, prepares an amazing lunch, served outside under the beautiful sunny Southern California sunshine.  

We even had a guest, Keegan Gerard, join us...(sorry, no pictures).
