Calling All Chocolate Adventurers to Explore Your Dark Sides

It's the second annual Scharffen Berger and Tutti Foodie Chocolate Adventure Recipe contest where a little bit of Iron Chef meets chocolate inspiration in competition for the grand prize:

$5,000, a mention in Saveur magazine, signed copies of Demolition Desserts by Elizabeth Falkner, Pure Dessert by Alice Medrich, The Essence of Chocolate by John Scharffenberger and Robert Steinberg, as well as a custom selection of Scharffen Berger® chocolates and a winner’s medal.

How do you enter: create a recipe for a sweet, savory or beverage ( you can submit one in each category!) that calls for Scharffen Berger chocolate—containing anywhere from 41% to 99% cacao—and at least one adventure ingredient which are listed on the website. You can submit your entry online by January 1, 2009.

For more details on past winners, celebrity judges and the list of the adventure ingredients go to:

How did we hear about this? My friend, Lisa, is a judge and one of the organizers of the competition. We are definitely going to enter and encourage you to as well. Spread this word about this new contest!
