comment Separated, grainy ganache (Dark and Stormies from Grewelings's book)
I disagree that pouring hot cream over chopped chocolate always causes it to seize. This is the only way that I make ganache, and it always turns out smooth. The trick is to start an emulsion in the center by pouring some in, rapidly whisking the very center of the mixture until the emulsion is formed, then pouring the rest in and gradually widening the concentric circles that you use to whisk the emulsion. This is the technique recommended by Greweling himself, and it works. It's a way to suspend the fat properly in the water for an emulsion.

comment Bizarre: Chocolate tempering is good on the outside
Unfortunately I already filled it with ganache so I can't take before/after shots. I waited 3 days before removing the chocolate from the molds (had other things to do); it has since been about 3 more. Interesting second point. How do you know this?

Chocolate that I marbled a good portion of, but that I didn't thoroughly mix in with the rest of the chocolate so full seeding didn't occur.

Thanks for the thorough explanation. I used chocosphere in the past for retail chocolate, I'll have to try their bullk variety. Time to try some Callebaut.

I agree. The idea is ridiculous.
