Editor's Letter - Jan 2013

A welcome from the Managing Editor of the online magazine.

Hello Readers,

 

All of us here at DessertProfessional.com wish you a Happy New Year!

Our team is thrilled to have successfully launched Dessert Professional the Magazine Online in November of 2012 and is still hard at work. We wanted to give our readers an indispensable and convenient dessert resource at their fingertips. The online magazine accompanies the Dessert Professional Connect Network, where you can connect with thousands of fellow dessert professionals and dessert-minded participants from all over the world.

Christmas Eve marked the end of the entry period for our Don't Lose Your Temper Giveaway. We're giving away a Chocovision Revolation Delta (retail $2,099) to a lucky member of the Connect Network. The winner will be celebrating the new year with a brand new 10lb. tempering machine thanks to Chocovision and DessertProfessional.com. We'll be announcing the winner later this month. 2013 is guaranteed to be a year of giveaways and prizes, so please stay in the loop by checking back with us for updates, following us on Twitter, and staying active on the Connect Network.

Speaking of the social network, I'm sure you've noticed that The Dessert Professional Connect Network has moved to connect.dessertprofessional.com. You are able to access all of your profiles, photos, and posts as you normally would at this new address. (NOTE: Please clear your browser cache and cookies to ensure you can access the site without issue.) You can also look forward to a few design changes that are sure to improve your experience on the Connect Network.

Lastly, I would like to introduce myself. I am the Managing Editor at the new DessertProfessional.com. I will be working closely with Matthew Stevens, the Editor at Dessert Professional Magazine and Editor-in-Chief at DessertProfessional.com, along with our fresh team of writers, photographers, bloggers, and more. You will hear from me every now and again with contest updates, important announcements, and other information.

 

Thank you for your readership and support.

Michelle Guiles

Managing Editor, DessertProfessional.com

P.S. We are looking for dessert bloggers to feature on the site. If that’s you, please .
