Chocolate in the Village: LBC was there
No, not that Village. We donated some chocolate prizes and we also agreed to demo making chocolates there at the library.
Kim and I went to Falls Village, CT to do a demo at their fund raiser for their library. The library was impressive and the entire village turned out for the event. Kim and I had a great time there and the demo went well.
Falls Village is very picturesque and even smaller than Greenville. We have a hot dog stand. That's almost the big city.
These pictures do not show you how large this library is and how nicely appointed it is. And, since their fund raiser was a big success, I don't think they'll let it fall into poor shape.
I did a demo on how to make molded chocolates. While I was making the chocolate, people came up to me to ask questions. One fellow in particular had a ton of questions and he also wanted me to look at the chocolates he'd made for the event. I quote, "It is not as easy as it looks (making chocolates)." People in general do not realize how difficult it is to make chocolates and confections. When the chocolate agrees to work with you, it can be a breeze, but when the chocolate decides not to work with you, it can be hell. Many chocolatiers, some of them my friends, have given up because of the difficulty of working in this medium.
In the end, we had a great time and enjoyed our visit.
