The Second Annual Seattle Chocolate Salon Awards were selected Sunday a team of expert panelists. This year’s Taste TV again sponsored the Seattle Luxury Chocolate Salon. A variety of chocolatiers from throughout the US, including many locals, had products on display and available for sampling. Chocolate making is a fascinating process limited only by the skill, imagination and access to raw materials available to the maker, and that was apparent at this event.
