Chocolate Galore!

23 Nov

I’m your basic chocolate lover! I love to eat and bake sweet chocolate desserts like chocolate chip cookies, brownies and ganache and sometimes, I even experiment with savory chocolate dishes like chili and pasta. So when I saw that Breezy’s, my favorite baking supply store, offered a class where I could learn how to take my chocolate obsession to the next level, I was in! After a long day with my son home sick from school, it was such a pleasure to go to Breezy’s for the Chocolate Galore class with instructor Robin Muchnick. When I got there, I was pleasantly surprised to find an organized set up of silicone molds, transfer sheets, bowls of colored sugar and sparkle, and other exciting treats that I would soon be filling and covering with chocolate. Just remember that the chocolate tips I’m going to share with you don’t even cover half of what you can learn when you actually take the class, but they will give you a taste (no pun intended).  Continue reading

My Kosherfest 2011 Experience

9 Nov

I just returned from the 26th annual Kosherfest Expo, the world’s largest kosher-certified products trade event serving the retail and food service industries. It’s like the ultimate grocery shopping trip but nothing is actually on the market yet. This was my first time attending and I am thankful for the advice I received from past attendees: wear comfortable shoes, drink a lot of water, pace yourself, and eat dairy for a few hours then switch to meat. I was tempted to try the lamb riblets at 10:30 am but I knew the ice creams, chocolates, and other delicious dairy products were just asking to be tried and I wanted to be the one to answer the call! So I walked slowly through each row of food and product exhibits with my sister, talking to vendors about selling their brands in Seattle and tasting exciting new things. Some items got me really excited to cook in 2012 while others may or may not have been spit out of my mouth. I don’t think I’ll mention those. So here is a list of my favorite new products and some pictures from my Kosherfest 2011 experience! Continue reading
