As I frequently mention, I am in the planning process of doing my own shop in Alberta Canada. I would like everyone’s opinion as to what they consider to be good equipment for making chocolate covered almonds etc. I need only a small capacity machine to begin with.
http://www.ravensbergen.com has some listed (page 65 I think) and they are from Italy. Does anyone know about this equipment and of course, what is your opinion. Thanks.
Debra.

Along similar lines, I would like to find a good intoductory text for panning. I’ve wanted to learn panning for a variety of reasons and have unfortunately not been able to find instructions detailed enough so that I felt comfortable enough to go off and do it myself. Does anyone have any pointers here?

In response to Deb’s question … One piece of advise I can give you is that the size of the panning machine is important to your results. I.e., a big pan = big batches and a small pan = small batches. Your pan must match your batch size in order to achieve optimal results.
