Life by Chocolate

Chocolate, white, milk, dark, in all its forms forms life. Chocolate truffles, caramels, and other confections are at the core of enjoyment. This is life by chocolate because death by chocolate is the wrong attitude.

My new tempering machine

I do quite a bunch of hand tempering because I don't have the capacity to do all the chocolate that I need to do. So, I do much of the chocolate by hand. I'm trying out a new system, using my mixer, to agitate the chocolate as it cools in front of the air-conditioner. Eat your heart out ChocoVision. This set up is certainly cheaper and easier than doing it by hand.

Notice the infrared temperature thermometer. Nice.
