Radcliffe spends his days making truffles and chocolate based cakes and cookies. He uses his knowledge of chemistry to coax the best from chocolate through temperature management. He savors the taste and smell. He even brushes his teeth with the stuff.
Radcliffe, a former trauma Womens Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit Running Shoes nurse, has been a chocolatier for 11 years now. Machajewski has a background in retail and works the front room when he isn't baking chocolate scones, cookies or cake with white chocolate icing. Both men studied at the Callebaut Chocolate Academy in Chicago and Theo Chocolate University in Seattle.
"We're telling this chocolate how to behave," he said. "We're teaching this chocolate some etiquette today and how Nike Blue Joggers
The crystals form based on temperature. The Seattle native raised the temperature slowly, then backed down, then brought up the heat again. The wrong crystals can give chocolate the consistency of Silly Putty, he said, or cause it to crumble like granules of sand. He glanced into at the silky, dark liquid and grinned.
"There are multiple types of crystals (six) that form in chocolate as it melts," he said. "There's only one crystal we are looking for."
However, "chocolate is going through a renaissance in this country." He can spot rookies when they pop chocolate in their mouths and chew, rather than let it melt. The taste of fine chocolate can linger for five or more minutes.
hold such things as mango juice, coconut cream, vanilla, oranges and even beer and whiskey to enhance the chocolate. He said the Prodigal Son is considering having Radcliffe create a chocolate truffle with one of the brewery's beers.
Radcliffe recently set up shop on Pendleton's Main Street as Alexander's Chocolate Classics. Though they've only had a soft opening, customer traffic flows as steadily as a chocolate fountain. He and his partner Steve Machajewski are pushers of a sort, plying their guests with free tastes of drinking chocolate and the heady aroma of grand cru espresso and baked goods.
The chocolate pronounced worthy, he ladled it into pre warmed truffle molds. When the outer edges had hardened slightly, he tipped the mold upside down and let some of the inner chocolate drain off in a sort of chocolate rain. The result was a rich, glossy shell with a cavity where Radcliffe would later inject lavender ganache and seal it with a layer of chocolate.
Moderate consumption of dark chocolate, he insisted, works as an anti inflammatory and probiotic, lowers blood pressure, improves memory and elevates the mood. Studies also suggest that a compound found in dark chocolate may also fight cavities, plaque and tooth decay and help harden tooth enamel.
"The United States is about 200 years behind Europe in true chocolate knowledge," Radcliffe said. have been raised on industrial chocolate."
On a recent day, Radcliffe donned a chocolate brown chef's coat and set about making truffles for the Inn at Abeja, a Walla Walla bed and breakfast and winery. Each truffle would eventually bear the imprint of a bee, the meaning of Abeja.
Radcliffe didn't want his age in the newspaper, but he looks younger than his years. Only half jesting, he attributes his youthful looks to a steady diet of chocolate, high in antioxidants. He has a drawer full of research studies, which he will pull out upon request.
looked vaguely like a crock pot with a moving arm that stirs constantly, the chocolate melted to Radcliffe's specifications. The chocolatier, who spent two years learning the chemistry of his craft, described the tempering process as vital to taste and texture.

Radcliffe uses the fine chocolate as the main ingredient of his truffles and enhances them. His kitchen shelves Nike T Shirt For Men 2017
Radcliffe doesn't "make" the chocolate. He leaves that to growers and master chocolate makers of Europe who grow and roast the cacao beans and produce fine chocolate from them. The process is as complex and nuanced as wine making, Radcliffe said. People knowledgeable about chocolate will take their time, noticing such things as aroma, sheen, crispness (it should make a satisfying snap when broken), texture and finish.
