This was my third time helping to judge the @chocawards Americas & Asia-Pacific competition (previously judged in 2013 & 2015). Every year, I learn a lot & meet new people. This year, though getting to know those familiar faces I've seen previously, and speaking with those I just met, I've learned a lot more, reinforcing my love for chocolate. What a privilege it was to be surrounded by this group of people, and was an amazing experience to get to taste chocolates from all over!
It was worth the chocolate-related headaches, and heaps of palate-cleansing polenta.
Thank you @maricelpresilla7 for welcoming us all into your "living room" 😊🍫. See you at World Finals!
