Several Chocolate Lifer's are in the Washington, DC area for the annual http://forums.egullet.org/topic/151277-report-eg-chocolate-and-confectionery-workshop-2015/

We took the opportunity yesterday afternoon to visit with Ben Rasmussen of Potomac Chocolate and have a tour of his compact basement chocolate factory. The man is a powerhouse! And a delight to meet.

I can't figure out how to add a link to a Gallery here - but if you look for the photo gallery 'Potomac Chocolate' you will find some pictures I took of Ben's amazing setup. 

Just one teaser photo - the roasting basket from his roaster that he had built from a convection oven.

How do I link to an album of pictures that I took at Potomac so I can add them here?
