Hi Everyone!
  I am just getting into ganache for covering cakes (both with and without fondant).
I have been reading that chocolate >52% cocoa.  Does anyone have a favorite brand of Chocolate they use for ganache?
I have also been reading it is 2 parts chocolate to 1 part heavy cream.

Thanks

Just wanted to add that Alice Medrich recently wrote about cacao percentage and ganache differences. Here’s a link:
