Hi. I was wondering what school you people can recommend for learning more about chocolate. I know how to temper, mould,etc but I want to learn more techniques, decorations, fillings and improve my techniques by seeing pros and getting tips…. Someone mentioned ZDS Solingen. I do not want a two or three day basic course. What do you suggest??
Thanks!
Ilana

In case anyone misunderstood me, I am looking for a course that is more intense than a two day course.

Thanks. I am looking for something advanced, and it seems that their advanced class for 2007 has been cancelled. Did you take their class? It is so hard to fins a really professional course… It seems thateverything is 2 or 3 days and for basic understanding. I really appreciate the response!
Thanks,
Ilana

He will be doing private consulting in 2007 according to his website. I would suggest that you try to pull a class together and bring him in to teach it. You could advertise to get a beginners class, and then have a second course for the pro’s
Just a suggestion!

What an idea! Do you think he would travel abroad as I am not from the U.S./Canada! Maybe I could ask him… It would probably work out too expensive.
Thanks!

Ilana,
He is based in Europe, so I can’t see it being too expensive. But, I really don’t know!!

Eventually, I want to be able to bring in Master Chocolatiers for various events once I get my shop up and running.

Well it is easier to get here from Europe, this is true. It is a very interesting idea. I am sure it won’t be difficult to get a group together, everyone here is constantly looking for a course and we usually have to go to Europe, and then it is only for a few days!
I will contact him and we will see.
Not everyone is “thrilled” to come here – unfortunately!
Thanks for the great ideas, I really do appreciate the effort!
Regards,
Ilana

Well I contacted JP Wybauw. He was amazing. He replied immediately. His 2007 schedule is booked up. He suggested I take a 3 day course at Callebaut. He also said that we can try towork something out for 2008!! So I obviously said I would love that and there is a group who would love it! If it really works out I will be indebted to you! You will be welcome to come, too!!
Sothanks again!

Fantastic. You would have lots of time to get the attendees rounded up if you bring him in for 2008. Yes, I might be interested in attending!!
