Has anyone bought his chocolate DVD? if so how is it? Does it worth buying it? I would like to know if it is a detailed and informative dvd before buying it!!

I do have this DVD, and I learned quite a bit. I am very new to chocolate, though, so I may not be the best judge of "informative" LOL. I also have Ewald Notter's chocolate decorations, and the two show different approaches and techniques. They were both worthwhile investments for me thumbs_up.gif

Probably as detailed, just slightly different techniques and approaches. Costello covers basics, gives some recipes, and shows a lot of detail just like Notter, but there are some different aspects covered by the two artists along with presentation of individual applications. I like seeing how different people accomplish similar results. There are no obvious conflicts of information or instruction - just individual variations and some different applications.
