Chocolate Salon Selected Judges' Comments

The stars who shined for me were Sixth Course, Cocoa, Monterey Chocolate, Amano, Earthbody, Vice and Chuao. It seemed they were the best at controlling flow of traffic while still maintaining conversation about the products. All of them were just really jazzed to be there which was awesome!


Alter Eco, Snake & Butterfly and Victoria Chocolatier are all using very simple, pure ingredients to make really wonderful products.

 


Another great event! I love the jerky - wished someone had made a chocolate jerky. Thanks!

I love you Chocolate Salon !


I have many favorites for different reasons and tastes. I appreciate all the hard work and effort that goes into making so many beautiful, tasty products.

 

The collective enthusiasm of master chocolatiers Wm. Dean, Christopher Michael and Cocotutti is impressive. Their love of flavor, their dedication to precise formulation of delicious new taste sensations an inspiration.
The newcomers of Sixth Course are likewise presenting flavors that are memorable, that linger on the palate to tantalize long after being experienced.
And I found the caramel produced by CC Made to be remarkable. So many talented folks under one roof is always a pleasure for someone like me. I can definitely say I tasted the ""love"" (and the butter) in her product.
The offerings of all the artisans were delectable.

William Dean Chocolates continue to lead the way in artistic designs, excellent flavors, and new products. Their ganache-filled macarons will be a big hit.

Wonderful chocolatiers and other chocolate people with amazing new flavors. Everyone was so knowledgeable about process and chocolate and their companies and eager to share. The Best Chocolate Salon ever!

"Cocoa had a white chocolate with candied violet that was really magical! The White chocolate truffles from Sixth Course were perfect, consistency, flavor, very well done! "
William Dean Chocolates have an outstanding selection of flavors and continue to amaze with wonderful colorful designs. Toffee Talk is all that can be said about toffee - excellent variety. The quality of each salon keeps getting higher. Though the entrants are fewer, the bars (pralines) of excellence are raising; it's a very exciting time to be interested in, and trying, chocolates. Entrance was organized and streamlined. Crowd appeared to have fun. Music was nice touch.
