EATING CHOCOLATE:

Eating chocolate is chocolate in a bar (or other) form intended for eating, as opposed to drinking chocolate. Until the 1840′s, chocolate was consumed only as a beverage.

 

ENROBING:

Enrobing is one of the four basic methods of covering a center with chocolate (the others are panning, dipping, and shell molding. Enrobing can be done by hand, though it is tedious work. Many chocolatiers use an enrober, a machine which conveys the centers on a rotating belt through a tunnel-like apparatus that allows a liquid stream of tempered chocolate to shower gently onto them. The enrobed centers then pass through a cooling chamber so the chocolate can set. A faint shaking motion during the process allows for even distribution of the chocolate covering.

 

ESTATE-GROWN or SINGLE ESTATE:

Beans from a single plantation or hacienda.

This glossary would not have been possible without the kind assistance of my good friend Karen Hochman who runs the website: The Nibble. Karen gave us permission to base our chocolate glossary on hers. TheNibble is one of the Internet’s best resources for food articles, reviews, history, and just about anything when it comes to quality food. Please, if you have a few moments, visit my friend Karen’s website and you’ll be amazed at what a valuable resource it is. Thanks for all your help Karen!
