My supplier decided that cocoa butter is now special order so I had to buy a case. And now I have an excessive amount of cocoa butter, anyone need any?  

 

Cacao Barry cocoa butter pistoles with a best by date of April 2021   $66 for the 3 kg tub or $22 per kg plus shipping.

It's ok, at least it's fresh ... and my EZ Temper will never be empty again! :)

Do you still happen to have any left? I'm setting up a new facility just south of you on Harstine island and could use 2-3 containers

Hi Rick,  Yes I still have one sealed tub available.  Do you ever get up to Seattle?  My kitchen is in Georgetown, I could meet you there. 

 

Or if you're using a lot and need more, this was from Peterson in Auburn.   I think they have a pretty wide delivery area but give them a call 800-735-0313

I have a flight out of Sea-Tac on the morning of Sept 18. to Las Vegas. I'll be attending two of Melissa Coppel's courses. Maybe I could stop by your shop on the way? You can also email me at rick@goldensignaturegifts.com

@Rick Reese could do that, or on your way back so you don't have to carry it around or leave it somewhere.

I don't fly back until Sunday the 29th at 11:45 am. I don't expect you would be working on a Sunday.

I usually do work Sundays so that’s not a problem. I can pencil you in for the 29th around 1pm. 

 

6564 5th Ave S - take 509 North to Michigan St then a right at Counterbalance Brewing. Look for the huge Equinox Studios sign on the roof of my building and Dolcetta Artisan Sweets on the door.

      I'm trying to make bonbons with milk shells for the first time and I'm struggling. When I melt my milk chocolate it is really thick. Is this normal? I'm pretty sure humidity is not an issue. I'm concerned that my shells wont empty out well and I'll be left with no room for ganache. I tried adding some cocoa butter last time but it affected the flavor. 
       
      Disclaimer: I'm using pretty cheap milk chocolate (Ghirardelli) cuz I'm still learning. If you think this is the only issue please let me know.

      We work with transfer sheets regularly but most of them are not double backed. By that I mean most of them are one layer, not backed with a white layer. I'm having a real problem with consistency in the thicker sheets as seen attached. We attach these individually as they come out of the enrober but it doesn't feel like we're getting enough heat penetration to do a full transfer.
       
      Anyone share some tips on thicker applications like these? Our short run came out fine but as soon as we went into production of course the first batch ends up being shot.

      So a question about guitar cutters. I can see why they're a superior method for cutting ganache in terms of uniformity and efficiency, but I was wondering if there's something about cutting with a metal string that's superior to cutting with a knife? Perhaps a ganache would stick to the string less than the knife? Where I'm headed with this is, as someone who's just starting out and not ready to invest in a guitar cutter, I'm wondering if using a cheese lyre to cut ganache might be better than using a knife?

      Afternoon everyone. I know that some of you have taken classes with Melissa Coppel and I am finally going to bite the bullet and take one of her classes, but I don't know whether I should take her "Intensive Chocolate Workshop" class or her "Running a Chocolate Production" class. I hear all of her classes are great, but I'm just wondering which one would be better for an amateur home chocolate maker who is pretty confident in his tempering and ganache skills, but is looking to take that next step. Thanks in advance!!

      Hey guys :) 
       
      Im having difficulties with my tempering machine. The chocolate is not in temper. Ive made several tests and they all have certain marks on. 
      Im in a hot country so i make sure to have my mould in temper and then i pop them in the fridge to make sure they set properly. 
      Any tips? Something i should be considering? 
      Anything would be of great help!!!!
