New flavors are my favorite discoveries. When at home, I'm drooling over these pictures. When I finally get on the road my mind is on vacation but taste buds are at work. When I get back it's time to start cooking.
In our Artisan Confections chocolate class, we carefully transferred our custom designs on to bittersweet ganaches. We painted our masterpieces of colored liquid cocoa on to transfer sheets and let them dry, before placing and pressing them on top of the freshly coated bonbons. After chilling them, we peeled the sheets off to admire our delicious creations. Next came my favorite part—eating the fruits of our labor!
Artisan Confections offers monthly chocolate classes in their Arlington retail store. Students are given a short lesson on the process of chocolate-making then dive into creating their own treats. Those who can't make a class can still purchase the store's hand-made goodies. To get there, hop off at the Clarendon Metro on the Orange line.http://artisanconfections.c...
