In addition to the above, I'd recommend The Advanced Professional Pastry Chef (also by Bo Friberg), On Baking, and Baking and Pastry from CIA. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
Does the staff need to be told to wash their hands every hour? I can't count how many times I wash my hands during and hour, certainly is more then one. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
Go back to using Cacao Barry or Callebaut, those are the types of chocolate you want to use for for molding. I've never used the Varina bar for baking you mentioned, but chocolate chips don't have much use beyond being included in a baked item, you would not use those for molding bonbons.

I've had one boos block for about 10 years. In the beginning I oiled it on a regular basis as reccommended, but I started to get lax with the oil and would just do it every so often.

If copper does interest you, I've seen JB Prince has good prices on copper, and it also pays to keep an eye out on ebay. Sent from my...
Haha, ive seen that knife, in the kitchen I work in in fact. I have a co worker who swears by the quality of kiwi, although im not really sure why, because her blade in bent all over the place. She also sharpens it daily on the lowest grit stone we have, thats how she gets through the day cooking. Shes had it for years and continues to use it even though the handle is chipping away, and there are commercial knives that would do a much better job then the kiwi for an...
