Ask the Alchemist #110


And now for something a little lighter.

Why don’t you have a how to guide on making chocolate?

?? I do. It’s on the front page and right here; How to make chocolate

Can you recommend any chocolate making books?

No. I don’t know of any.

Are you ever going to write a book on chocolate making?

Maybe. I’ve thought about it for years. The more I learn and know, the more I learn what I don’t know and that there is more to know and learn.

Can I make chocolate without a melanger.

No. At least with the caveat that you can’t make smooth chocolate without a Melanger.

Do you make chocolate just for yourself?

No.

Do you eat all the chocolate you make for your testing?

No. I save it up and make holiday truffles once a year, often for a fund raising event for a local school.  And of course for family and friends.

Can I be your apprentice?

Not in person. I’m not set up for that kind of thing. But if you are reading and learning from Chocolate Alchemy, then you already are.

Can I visit Chocolate Alchemy?

Sure. Assuming you mean the location and not the site.  I love to have visitors. But drop ins don’t work well. Appointments are good.

Do you offer chocolate making classes?

No. Not structured ones. What I offer is troves of information on the site, and questions answered readily if you have them.
