It's that time again. November 10 through November 13th. Anyone going? If so, what are you excited about seeing? Demonstrations? Vendors?

I'm going!!! I plan to be there on the Friday, and deffinately don't want to miss Anil Rohira's demo on Friday at 6 (I think... maybe it's 6:30). There's a thread in the P&B section that follows a class that he gave earlier this year and I would be really excited to meet him. Last year I met Jacques Torres, and again this year Jacques demo will be at 3:30 on Saturday. The amount of people that go on the Saturday is insane, be ready to be pushed and bumped into... (even though everyone is on a good chocolate high) ... so I had to make an executive decision to only attend on the Friday (especially that the tickets are 25$ this year, and last year I had a 50% discount off the 20$ price...). Also, I will be missing Ewald Notter's demo on Sat, but since Anil Rohira worked so closely with him, I'm just as happy to meet him. Also, really looking forward to Jacques Wicked hot chocolate!! YUMMMY. I can't wait! :biggrin:

Stupid question - anyone know if you can get tickets at the door? I found the website here: Chocolate Show, but it um...crashed my browser...

I ask because best friend and I aren't sure which day we'll be going.

Omigod, GET YOUR TICKETS IN ADVANCE!!! :shock: The line up at the door in insanity. If you get your tickets before, you can walk right in and get inside. Also good to know that if you do have tickets, you don't have to be in the crazy line that goes around the block. This year the tickets are being sold through Ticketmaster, so I don't know how fast you can get them, unless you have the option to print them out right away (I think you do). I believe tickets are day-specific, so if you can print them out right before you leave for the show, you're laughing.

Excellent, thank you, when we decide which day to go I'll buy & print out the tickets via Ticketmaster then. I was more worried about it selling out, but on second thought, um, it wouldn't, right?

It's a tough call. I'm pretty damn thrilled about the series of culinary demos and the chance to meet industry professionals (I'm fresh blood here). Also, I can't wait to get to Felchlin's booth; his is one of the few high-end lines I haven't had a chance to experience.

I don't think they'd run out of tickets... at least I hope not!!

lapatisserie, would you be able to tell us how to go about obtaining a professional pass? It's too late for this year, but will be useful for next year, I didn't see anything about that on the Chocolate Show website. Thanks!!

I went back to the website to see what the link was but it does not appear to be there anymore. I was able to print out the registration forms on line but had to pay by check. The passes will be available for pickup upon arrival with presentation of business card or legal ID. The email I received back has a phone

number to answer any questions .....Colleen at 212.889.5810

lapatisserie, thank you for the info. It's too late for this year, but I will be prepared for next year. I wonder how many EGulleters will be at the show! I leave Montreal tomorrow for the drive up to NYC. I am SOOO excited! :raz:

I timed the readings I am giving for my new book specifically so that I can be in NYC for the Chocolate Show, which I have been salivating over for several years. For the average chocolate lover, how long should one allow to see everything? I'm trying to decide about squeezing the show in on Friday afternoon/early evening after some meetings and before a play, or Saturday morning, when I won't have any other commitments (but I've heard it gets really busy on Saturday.)

Any advice?

      I've read some older threads on here about keeping your cocoa butter warm in a dehydrator. We picked up a NutriChef PKFD32 which was the closest we could find to a recommended one (2016/2018) and none of our bottles fit. Which had us ask--are people putting their bottles preset in here or are you using cups/transferring and cleaning your bottles over and over? Also if the PKFD32 isn't what we should be using, is there one generally people like now?
       
      We've grown up from cheap airbrushes to the Grex line and we're attempting to get much more serious about our airbrush techniques. It's been long enough. Any thoughts, tips, tricks, or considerations are greatly appreciated.

      Hey guys!
       
      Im looking for the ultimate tool to make this design i have attached. 
      What do you guys recommend?
       
      Thanks!

      Hello everyone!
       
      Id like your advise about freezing bonbons. 
       
      Lets say i would start to freeze my bonbons now in the summer for Christmas. Would they last for such an extended period of time?
      Also using natural colouring, would the colour remain as good when i open them up after a couple of months?
       
      Would be great to hear your thoughts and experiences on the matter  
      Thank you!

      Hey guys!
       
      Ive been having some difficulty with Valhrona Milk 38%. It doesn't seem to temper like any other milk chocolate. 
      I melt the chocolate to 45C and then using the seeding technique i drop the temp down to 30C. 
      When at 30C it seems tempered but after a few minutes i start to see bad tempering results. 
       
      Is there something in particular about this chocolate that i should know about?

      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.
