Scharffen Berger Chocolate Adventure Contest: The Judging

Last month I flew to San Francisco to judge the Scharffen Berger Chocolate Adventure Contest. It was a fantastic day filled with chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate along with great company. The winners have been announced and the recipes were phenomenal. The winning recipes were simple and effective, very creative uses in the most basic of ways. They really allowed the flavor of Scharffen Berger chocolate to shine through. Here’s a quick video of the event, I hope you enjoy it!

P.S. Edwina, if you are reading I must tell you this: your recipe ROCKED!

    p.s. Matt, do none of the winners have food blogs? If so, it would have been nice if Scharffen Berger had provided links. Perhaps you can suggest this for next year’s contest?

    For some reason I want to splash my face with that bowl of chocolate. Thanks Matt for this post. I have to make those cocoa-dusted pommes frites. I mean, wtf? Yum:)
