chocolatey wednesday

yesterday, param, jill and i went over to willy wonka my sister's chocolate factory -quantum supplies @ glenmarie shah alam to undergo our training for the upcoming promo job at bangsar village from 7th-28th dec. please do come and buy chocolates from us!

upon entering the meeting room, we were greeted with a shelf-ful of nothing but chocolates! just makes any chocolate lover wants to cart the whole shelf away when nobody's looking!

fidani- finest chocolate creations

we started off with a brief lecture on chocolates 101. how chocolates are manufactured, its processes, ingredients, types of chocolates, how to distinguish good quality and notsogood quality chocs and etc.

we also got to learn some chocolatey terms like couverture, compound, pralines, ganache, truffles, gianduja, fondant, marzipan, fat bloom, conching etc.

and then we learnt how to operate the weighing machine and practiced weighing the chocs, putting them into boxes, folding boxes as well!, tying ribbons, and the occassional laughingoutloud at each other's gelabah-ness :)

whats inside the treasure box...

every chocolate aficionado dream come true

YES, WE GOT TO EAT OUR HEARTS OUT~!! WAHAHAH. chocolate overload seriously...

and then we got to tour the chocolate factory itself. fidani chocolates are all handmade you see so the factory has more humans than machineries. and too bad when we went visiting it was lunch hour so couldnt take pics of how the process goes...
