The only things I have found so far is:

http://gastronomie.kalys.com/kg_fr_en/carrageenan-iota-500g.html

http://www.silverspoon.co.uk/home/products/sugar-and-syrups-for-cooking/pectin

Haven't found the specific pectin mentioned...

Both of the "weird" ingredients are gelling agents though...

Iota is a type of carrageenan, and the LM pectin is the stuff used for sugar free jams and jellies as opposed to HM used for regular jams and jellies.

Both products appear to be heat stable and would help to keep the cholcolate elastic and keep it from melting.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

The chef, Chris Hanmer, is supposedly writing a book, and in this book he is supposed to explain the technique he used, along with the recipe.

I have searched and can't seem to find a title for the book, when it will be published, nothing....Anyone out there know?

Thanks!

I don't think it's out yet. I just got Ewald Notter's "The Art of the Chocolatier" and looked in there but it's a no go. Hanmer works with Notter, or studied under him or both (something like that -- there's a connection there.)
