    There are so many great newer chocolates out there to work with, was just wondering what favorites you have. I've always used Callebaut and Valrhona (SP), but I'm seeing a few I'd really like to try!

    A local candy factory went out of business and I was approached about possibly purchasing some of their couverture.

    The chocolate they used went by the name of Lubeck and was imported from Germany. I really, really liked it. I was given several blocks of the couverture to "sample"....wish I had snapped some of their stock up while I had the chance. It was a nice chocolate.

    I've used some Cacao Barry as well. LOVED their Cuban chocolate....wasn't wild about their Venezuelan.

    El Rey makes a nice product.
