In October, I had the chance to compete in the World Finals of the International Chocolate Awards in London, England. This was also the first year the Salon du Chocolat was being held in London. Deciding this was an opportunity too amazing to pass up I called my friend living in London and asked if she was interested in a chocolate adventure. I had the opportunity to meet some incredible chocolatiers who I have looked up to for years. Even though, I didn't come home with another medal it was an absolutely amazing experience to be a World Finalist in my first year of competition.
