What is the difference between cacao and cocoa?
The chocolate industry calls the tree Theobroma cacao and its raw prodcuts cacao. Once pods are opend, and beans begin its many forms of processing into butter, powder, liquor and ultimately chocolate, we use the term cocoa.
What is tempered chocolate?
Tempering is the process chocolatiers follow to melt and reshape chocolate through a three stage process to heat, cool and then heat chocolate again so cocoa butter crystalizes. Easy ways to determine if chocolate is well tempered: it will have a glossy appearance, snap when broken and will maintain its form.
