About me :
I am just getting started. Recently laid off from my last professional position, I have decided to make pastries. I have created a great chocolate candy but tempering to get the beautiful, dark coating is proving extremely difficult and time-consuming. I am at the point now where I need to produce a more professional, consistent product. I am thinking a tempering machine would be perfect for me. I have given a lot of free chocolates away but now am prepared to do it right with the right tools so I can feel comfortable actually getting paid for them. I think we have been erroneously led to believe sweets are not healthy...our bodies are programmed to require sweets...if we listen to what we need, moderation will prevail.
I enter competitions :
I consider my specialty to be:
candy enrobing & ganaches to start. Goal is to produce international pastries and candies. I never see a recipe that I don't want to tweak in some way...I love the creativity and beauty in foods, how they are plated and in beautiful, delicious desserts.

I never left the kitchen for 4 days and I loved it! I made macarons and brigadeiros (my sneaky attempt to find out if anyone would like my passion enough to think I had a shot as a pastry chef and it worked :)) But with… Continue

chocolate ganache for macarons

ok -- so I admit - my first try at macarons and decided to get the fillings done first...ganache...I followed the recipe but I think it is going to be too soft for a filling...a little grainy too, in my opinion. I read somewhere that you can't stir the chocolate before it is already heated because of the fat particles getting released too soon.

So questions: should it be more fluid rather than frosting consistency? Do you need to temper the chocolate first? I used callebaut… Continue

Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
