Affet two years of virtual gatherings we were excited to finally attend The Northwest Chocolate Festival in-person this year! It was two nonstop days of chocolate sampling and education, and it was incredibly energizing to once again be able to connect with people face to face. We saw a lot of old friends and made a lot of new ones.
There were also numerous presentations about all things chocolate and Monica was on a panel for the Fine Chocolate Industry Association. Along with other craft chocolate professionals she’s been working on a glossary of terms with standard definitions agreed upon by everyone in the industry. Having this valuable resource will be a big step toward allowing everyone to speak the same language when it comes to moving the craft chocolate industry into the future.
