Inspection process

I'm in the beginning stages of how to go into the business and wonder if anyone can comment on what is involved in getting the health inspection completed- what do they look for, do you contact health dept. and schedule or do they drop in un- announced, how frequently, do you have to pay for them, etc,? Thanks for comments, tips on what to focus in, etc

Breakfast Pie

This year I had so much to be thankful for. Family from the west coast to the east and from up north to down south all convened - and stayed - at my home for the Thanksgiving holiday week to finally all be together in the same place at the same time on the first holiday in eons. 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…See More

Profile Information

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 :
Never
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.

chocolate ganache for macarons

Posted on October 21, 2013 at 3:15pm 0 Comments

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:(mr.frankkwabena30@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.

Frank.
