I'm being a bit cheeky by calling this a "business book". But if you have kids that love good chapter books and maybe they want to own their own business one day - this book is seriously perfect! I feel strange even calling this a book review... it's mostly me gushing about how cute this book is... haha!
At the time, I had no idea how the book would turn outl. But after reading about Little Lamb Books and Rachel telling me that "the main character's father, Mr. Sweeney, is a chef, food truck driver, and all-around baker of third grade treats" and his treat of choice happens to be a pecan praline, I knew I had to say yes!

This praline is to one of the best things I have ever eaten. And eat it I did! Once it cools, it has an opaque, almost grainy look. When the pecans have been added, the candy sets up almost immediately, so get it onto the prepared sheet pan and spread it out right away.
This tart can be executed in steps. The tart shells can be made a day or two in advance as can the pastry cream. The caramel and praline can be made a week ahead of time. However, these Banana Caramel Tarts with Rum Pastry Cream and Pralines should be assembled the morning of service.
After this lengthy processing from farm to factory, Belgian chocolate is finally ready to be packaged and sold. Belgian chocolatiers purchase chocolate bars and other products from industrial manufacturers such as Belcolade and Barry Callebaut, melt the chocolate, and retemper it. Then, they form it into pralines or other chocolates in a variety of shapes, from simple squares to hearts, seashells, and birds.
Yet for many Belgian praline makers, the flavor of the chocolate itself remains the paramount consideration. Such is the case for Geert Decoster, artisan chocolatier and owner of Centho Chocolates in the village of Duisburg, near Brussels (Fig. 1).
Pralines are more susceptible to fat bloom than unfilled chocolates because their fillings often contain higher concentrations of specific triglycerides than their chocolate shell. As a result, these fats diffuse to the chocolate surface, transforming into form VI crystals. Because fat bloom is a major impediment to long-term storage, and thus export, of Belgian pralines, the UGent Cacaolab is working to produce fat bloom-resistant chocolates.
