Last September, the Washington State Association, organized the first chocolate competition "Salon du Chocolat".
Special shout out to Chef Tamas Ronyai to work so hard to make this event a reality!
Thanks to Cacao Barry for their chocolate.
I decided to enter this competition with a small showpiece inspired by Scrat the crazy squirrel of ice age.
Here is a small collection of the work in progress, and the final piece.
Good chocolate class for non, professional today. We made molded candies, with several ganache fillings
All the chocolate shells, were made with 70% Guanaja from Valrhona chocolate.
I'm a pâtissier globe trotter, always looking for the next thing.
