The Working White House: Chocolate Mold

Chocolate mold, 1990s. “I had to produce glossy, smooth confections on an almost daily basis at the White House,” recalled former executive pastry chef Roland Mesnier. Rather than selecting a metal mold for making individual candies, Mesnier preferred a plastic form such as this one, designed to yield nine candies, each embossed with the presidential seal. Mesnier developed his own signature chocolate-tempering techniques and used them to delight White House guests for more than 25 years.
