A while ago …. okay, over a year ago … I was given a marble slab by Simon’s uncle. At a metre squared, we needed to find the right spot for it, and a suitable table to put it on and make sure the height was right and all of those things, before we installed it. Because once it was in its place, it wasn’t going to be easily moved.
Finally, this week, we got it set up. Simon and I managed to carry it between us. After the first ‘to you … to me’ we abandoned any more of that malarky as we were both under a bit of strain, but we did it and it is a thing of beauty.
It was my first attempt at tempering on marble, and it was an absolute joy. The results came out perfectly every time. I’m a very happy chocolatier!
