CULINARY AWARDS
The HotChocolate™ Society’s Culinary Awards challenge chefs to explore the art of cooking with chocolate to create savory or sweet bites. Hadley N. Stock from Pink Boot Farm collected three awards - the jury and audience awards for BEST SAVORY BITE for their “Bourbon brined coco-dusted pork belly steamed bun with chocolate hoisin sauce and quick pickles” and the jury’s BEST SWEET BITE for their “Deep dark chocolate bread pudding with bourbon salted caramel sauce and orange creme anglasie”. Popular vote for BEST SWEET BITE went to Natasha & Matt Littrell and Gene Rowley of the Crazy Russian Girls Bakery for “Chocolate Ginger Brandy Snap”.
