This past Monday, the library hosted its second annual "For the Love of Chocolate" contest. Participants were asked to create one chocolate dessert for the judges, three local businesswomen, who would score the desserts on five criteria: taste, texture, appearance, originality, and complexity. After much deliberation (and thirteen scrumptious entries) the judges made their decisions.
First place went to Emily McCracken and her Chocolate Ganache Cake; second place went to Lynn Norman for her Chocolate Bonbons; while third place went to Peyton Pakozdi for her Oreo Cake.
Afterward Jim Revelos, of Esther Price Candy, gave a presentation about the history of the company, as well as featuring a short video in which the candy making process of the local sweets company was shown. Needless to say, it was a night of entertainment and decadence.
