As a celebrity judge, I voted for bakery and just chocolate categories and I can attest the Doubletree’s display was fabulous especially one scone filled with all kinds of bittersweet and spicy ingredients. And oh, those Coco-lat Truffles — very upscale.

I also sampled Culinary Design’s chicken mole taco which was a clever use of chocolate in a sea of sweetness.

Congratulations! I can’t wait until next year…
