SELECTED JUDGE'S COMMENTS

the art of chocolate making is getting better and better with more original designs

 

The flavors of DeGroot's truffles captured the intrinsic flavor of the ingredients to perfection

William Dean Chocolates were beautiful and delicious..lush.. Loved the special box, too! Flying Noir always introduces such unique flavors. Loved the Mole Chocolate truffle!

I like the flavor creation of cocotutti. They are tasty and creative.

I loved the many new exotic and interesting flavor combinations in truffles this year! Chocolatiers continue to tempt with delicious and increasingly creative combinations!

The spicy chocolates at Cowboy

William Dean Chocolates. I would also like to add it is a nice aromous touch of adding the perfumeries.

 

Leonardo e Roberto also opened a whole new world of taste thru mixing,with a sense of earthy sophistication. Yet the most astounding artist seemed to be Karen Urbanek. She is transformational and an inspiration.
