Industry VIP Day With Ramon Morato 19th March 2009 - Images

Darren and Ian had the privilege to watch top Spanish patissier and chocolatier Ramon Morato at work for the day in the kitchens of William Angliss TAFE here in Melbourne. Ramon invited an intimate gathering of industry professionals to promote the Selvatica range of chocolates and to pass on some of the vast experience he has gained over an illustrious career. Ramon presented six gateauxs from start to finish, all with a chocolate base and all with different flavours, finishes and techniques. A lot of information was shared in a full day of interaction and education and it was extremely good to see everyone taking notes and obviously enjoying the occasion. Ramon was assisted by chef Adriano Zumbo from Sydney and Adriano has since become a friend of Burch & Purchese. Adriano has his own successful patisserie in Sydney and it is well worth checking out whenever you are in the harbour city. Watching Ramon working with chocolate was enlightening and Ian and Darren took lots of positive information from the course. The day was organised by The Cocoa Alliance and Chocovic and both of the links to these companies can be found at the foot of this blog. Burch & Purchese have already put into practice techniques learnt on the day and look forward to showcasing them to the Australian public.
