Scharffen Berger Chocolate Adventure Contest: The Judging

by Matt on March 29, 2010

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?

Hmmm… my original comment did not post for some reason. I hope they host this contest again next year, I’d love to join the fun. For those of you who are wondering about the winning recipes, you can find them on the Scharffen Berger contest website. :)

I(t would be great if the recipes will be available to the readers. LOL. But I really want to know even a single chocolate recipe from there.

I’m not only jealous you got to have so much delicious chocolate, I’m also super jealous you got to hang out with ALICE MEDRICH!
