Belgian Chocolate Makers


Posted in: Opinion

For your information:

Belcolade doesn't produce from the bean but from the mass

Callebaut is a belgo-swiss company...and produces massive volumes of industrial quality chocolate

Benot Nihant Chocolatier was founded 5 years ago and produces since last year single plantation chocolate from bean to bar. www.benoitnihant.be

BenoƮt Nihant Chocolatier goes "Bean to Bar"


Posted in: Travels & Adventures

It is the certainly one of the most exciting steps in my chocolate life: I am now producing my own chocolate from fantastic beans! Only Giants like Callebaut and Marcolini ( aka Nestle) do it in Belgium. I am then proud to say that we are the only belgian craftsman to work from the bean!

..more to come in the following weeks, including a new experimental website!

Chocolate Panning, process and equipment


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Hello

I have just started experiments on my new coating pan. Is there anyone out there that could help me?

I put my hazelnuts into the pan, then pour the tempered chocolate...all began to mix...and a few minutes later, everything began to stick...and I got, a big "ball' of choco-hazelnuts"...horrifying...what is the problem do you think? How to avoid that? Is it a matter of spinning speed? of amount of material in the pan?

Thank you

Benoit

Chocolate machinery


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Dear Chocolate lovers!

I am a chocolatier from Belgium.

I am considering buying second hand equipment and would like to get your advises and recommendations on the models I found. First precision, I want to start slowly..but surely a small bean to bar process.

So, here are the machines :

First one is a BONNET 3 cylinders refiner

Second is a lab-size conche made by Petzholdt

WHo knows how these conche works?

Thank you in advance for your kind collaboration

Benoit

Belcolade doesn't manufacture from beans...only from liquors...and with old Callebaut machinery...
