Announcing The Chocolate Tasting Kit!

Chocolate Tasting Kit, by Eagranie Yuh

The Chocolate Tasting Kit, by Eagranie Yuh (Chronicle Books, 2014)The Fedex man arrived on an otherwise ordinary Thursday afternoon. I signed for the package: rigid items inside a flabby, floppy padded bag. A quick glance at the sender label told me it was from Chronicle Books, a publisher in San Francisco.

Scratch that. MY publisher in San Francisco.

It took a split second for it all to sink in. It started in the tips of my toes and quickly rose through my body, shooting out my fingertips as I ripped the package open. Inside: three pristine copies of The Chocolate Tasting Kit. By Eagranie Yuh.

My book. By me.

The ensuing happy dance was more joyous than I’ve done in a while, with limbs flailing, feet kicking and much squealing. It was a wholly undignified, unfettered expression of pure glee.

I’m drowning in other projects right now, but I did want to share the good news with you. You’ll be hearing plenty more between now and March 18, 2014, when the book comes out. But hey, if you wanted to, I don’t know…preorder said book, I’d reprise the happy dance. In fact, I might hug you and squeal and we could do a happy dance together. It would be undignified, and I think that’s entirely appropriate.

7 years as a chemist + 9 months of culinary school + 2 years as a pastry chef & chocolatier + a lifetime of writing = this blog. This blog won't always be about chocolate, but it will almost certainly be about food. The name of the blog is a triple play on words. 1. It's a nod to my training as a classical pianist. Among other fantastic accomplishments, J.S. Bach combined technical prowess with artistic inspiration and penned the 24 preludes & fugues that make up The Well-Tempered Clavier, Books I and II. 2. In order to behave properly, chocolate needs to be tempered. In a nutshell, tempering prompts the chocolate to assume its most stable crystalline form (beta prime, if you're interested) so that it is shiny, snappy, and as stable as it can be. 3. Depending on my mood and how we meet, you might agree that I'm well-tempered. Or not.
