Part 2: Fact Checking Georg Bernardini's "Chocolate - The Reference Standard"


Posted in: Opinion

Clay,

I can see the "trouble" with showcasing this at this stage. Where is this seminar being held? I want to attend as well :)

Part 2: Fact Checking Georg Bernardini's "Chocolate - The Reference Standard"


Posted in: Opinion

Clay...in regards to "the new findings" of 10 (and more) varieties (Amelonado, Contamana, Criollo, Curaray, Guiana, Iquitos,Maraón, Nanay, Nacional, and Purús) should one add these in as well on a educational layman level or is it way to much information to handle?

But where do the forastero and the trinitario "varieties" fit into this? I'm just trying to understand this myself ;)

Sincerely

Gustaf

Ganache???


Posted in: Chocolate Education

Daniela...yeah I heard that story too but I need true facts!! I saw that the word came from the French language, where it means literally, jowl, from Italian ganascia, modification of Greek gnathos jaw more at -gnathousFirst Known Use: 1977...I found this in the Merriam Webster site.

The name also refers to the lower jowl of a horse...

But I need true facts...ANYONE!!!
