Chocolate Down Under
thank you so much for your kind words gwen.
Thank-you so much Gwen !
that's exciting to hear so, I also feel there' something brewing over there in US.I actually was about to sit down with our nation's Chef o/t Year to inpspire him with top chocolate but hesitated (considering what's in it for me), but your comment gives energy to call him this week
hey Gwen, interesting thoughts thxdo you see chefs make creations with premium chocolate or rather put bars on their menu's in the US?Here in Belgium I see low quality mass brands coining the 'Grand Cru' en 'origin' labels but for the very wrong reasons and with very poor quality delivery.Only few pastry chefs invest in better couverture chocolate and then again mainly stick with eg Valrhona...
hi Gwen thx!Let's hope so, what products do you think will enter and define a new era on chocolate?
thx for the request! you can follow my passion on Facebook via
I think you have an amazing story...a lot to listen to and learn from...nice to be friends
Thank you Gwen! Home chocolate party sounds quite inspiring....very nice concept
Thank you yes I really do love to work with chocolate
Thanks for the friend request. Your Home Chocolate Parties sound great, what a wonderful niche to be in. Do you have any consultants in Boston?
Thank you. I find so many chocolate people to be just the best. Hard to be mean when you are filled with theobromide and involved in something that makes people happy/generous. You are in Michigan? We lived in Ann Arbor for 2 years long ago, while my husband was in grad school. I taught English at Eastern Michigan U. Before my chocolate-making days.I will check out your shop online, too!
Hi. It is almachocolate.com (in Portland, Oregon). If you need more than that let me know!
Thanks for the friend request!
With pleasure I accept your friendship,as chocolatier and ptissierYours sincerely,Vercruysse Geert
Very much looking forward to my MI visit. I'm doing my first chocolate tasting-book signing at a book store in LA, then San Fran...I'll have it down by June!!
Hellooo there.....a real treat to meet your acquaintance.thank you so much for what you wrote to me...that was with out a doubt the nicest thing anyone has said to me for quite some time
i see you have a shop? i would love to pick your brain about a few things...i am about to sleep now; i will write more later.....thanks again Gwendolyn!rick
Great story, amy is the kind of person I like. I think I will be able to make some of the things. Right now I am making a guitar for less than $300 the work surface is stainless the rest is alu. Wish me luck as I try to make a 30lb tempering machine that can hold 3, 30lb loads in continuous temper. I think I can do it with Air as opposed to Bain marie.
Hi Gwen!Nice to see your smiling face again!
Thank you Gwendolyn and so love the inviting feel of your lovely store.

is not an MLM firm. All consultants work directly for the parent company.What is exciting about
is that we expose consumers to great artisan chocolate in their homes and offices. Sure customers can go on-line and buy directly from great producers after we have gone through the work of teaching them about the products our artisan friends have crafted.
That is OK and that is the point of HCP.
In my world, if artisan chocolatiers must struggle to survive, then we all lose.
serves as a conduit to bring difficult to find chocolates directly into the homes and offices of hungry, choco-curious patrons. It works very well.No heavy handed sales tactics, white glove treatment all the way and everyone has a graciously good time. I will settle for nothing less!Special note to all TCL members. I get leads from around the US every day. I've been known to refer clients interested in learning more about chocolate directly to you. I do not charge for these leads.
