Seattle Luxury Chocolate Salon!

I was invited to shoot the recent 2nd annual Seattle Luxury Chocolate Salon, put on by Taste TV. And what an event it was.

I should start by saying that I’m actually not a real serious chocolate eater. (I know, I know.) If I’m going to indulge in sweets, I’d much rather go for something fruity. And if I’m going for richness, I’ll take something buttery or creamy. I usually choose something chocolatey as a last resort (meaning: I’m desperate). In essense, I’ll take strawberry over vanilla over chocolate.

So, I felt that I would not be too tempted to taste the goods while photographing them. See, I was on a “diet” and tried to abstain from sweets, and felt that a chocolate festival would be no tempation at all.

I was wrong. DEAD wrong.

I tried many bites of some of the best chocolate I’ve had in my life. I enjoyed so much of it, that I bought several little samples to bring home to Rick. My favorite? Posh Chocolat’s “10 Year Old Balsamic & Strawberry” artisan truffle. Listen to this description.

“10 Year Old Balsamic Vinegar, Strawberry Puree and Fresh Cracked Pink Peppercorns infused in 61% Single Origin Dark Chocolate Ganache. This sweet and tangy truffle is enrobed in 74% Single-Origin Ecuadorian Dark Chocolate.”

One word: sublime.

Enjoy the photos!


Cheers to chocolate!
