Karen Bryant went on a two-month road trip around the United States recently to meet with chocolate makers and chocolatiers who are molding the US chocolate experience. Although motivated for her personal education, the road trip and resulting blog was sanctioned by the Fine Chocolate Industry Association. With in depth interviews and photographs, I'll spotlight the people behind some of the best chocolate available to consumers today and focus mainly on those who will be exhibiting here at the 2016 NW Chocolate Festival so that attendees can visit them after the presentation. Attendees will not only gain insights about these fine chocolate professionals, but they will learn about the American craft chocolate movement and the bean-to-bar chocolate making process and gain appreciation for the artistry, passion and technology of taking chocolate and creating delicious and beautiful bonbons and truffles. This is consumer education at the most intimate level.
