I guess good news comes in pairs — we just found out that we picked up a few awards at last weekend’s Fall Chocolate Salon. We won gold medals for best organic / fair-trade chocolate and the new product awards, as well as silvers for best overall dark chocolate and dark chocolate bars. You can see the full list of winners here.
This salon is a smaller version of the giant Chocolate Salon that happens every year in the spring. It’s a bit more intimate and it was great place for us to catch up with some friends we hadn’t seen in a while and meet some new ones. Here’s a shot of Alice and me with our friend Zeina, a few hours before Alice hopped on a plane to Madagascar.
Special thanks to Corinne for the photos — Corinne has embarked un a multi-year bet to eat a different chocolate everyday. She is currently up to 1,800 chocolates eaten so far. You can check out her blog here: www.chocolatebanquet.com.
