I am so glad to know this great site 70%...
I am koean. I leaved in Belgium for 7years. I studied in Antwerpen for pralines. Now I have been a chocolatier in Seoul since 2000.
In Korea, not very many people know about real chocolate.
That means....I am lonely but I have to do many things with chocolate in here as a professional chocolatier.^^
Anyway,
I am afraid that if somebody could give me a info- about chocolate art?...Because I would like to learn more about chocolate art but I can stay in there just about 10 days. So, I think, I can't take a regular education because I have no enough time...
If somebody or some workshop could give me an opportunity to be a trainee for a short term course............It will be so nice.

Actually...I am so [:I]...because of my poor english...
I wish....keep touch with real chocolate!!

There is a book which provides general technical information. Though it is geared more towards industrial production, I believe much of the information would be of value as it provides detailed information, for example, on reputed vs. actual effects of conching. I do not know if it is any longer in print:

Minifie, Bernard W.
Chocolate, cocoa, and confectionery: science and technology
(I've seen the 3rd edition)
Publisher: Van Nostrand Reinhold, New York

Good luck promoting chocolate in Korea! A friend from my school years I believe is a teach of music composition at Seoul University.
