Editor's Letter - Jan 2013

A welcome from the Managing Editor of the online magazine.

Hello Readers,


All of us here at 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 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 You are able to access all of your profiles, photos, and posts as you normally would at this new address.
