DallasChocolate.org will be presenting the Chocolate Conference 2011 on August 27, 2011 at the Addison Conference Centre. Already scheduled to participate are acclaimed chocolate maker Shawn Askinosie (Askinosie Chocolate) from Missouri, San Francisco chocolatier Michael Recchiuti and local chocolatiers Wiseman House Chocolate, Coco André, and Dr. Sueʼs Chocolate. Many more chocolatiers will be announced soon.

The Chocolate Conference 2011 has two main components: A Showcase of Chocolate and a Chocolate Academy. The Showcase of Chocolate will be an exhibition hall where attendees can sample chocolates from all participating chocolatiers and chocolate makers. In the Chocolate Academy, attendees can hear talks throughout the day about the making, use, and history of fine chocolate. The Academy will start with the Chocolatier’s Roundtable -- a free-flowing discussion with all participating chocolatiers.

More details about the Chocolate Conference 2011 including pricing, participating chocolatiers and chocolate makers, and complete Chocolate Academy schedule will be announced at DallasChocolate.org.

Nice lineup! Will there be an "awards" component this year (e.g., jury prizes and audience awards)?

PS For some reason, headliner Recchiuti doesn't appear in the press release posted on SideDish.

Thanks Scott!

I've gone back and forth about awards. The winners like them, but I think it changes the spirit of camaraderie among the attending chocolatiers.

Recchiuti hadn't confirmed in time for the press release, so DallasFood.org gets the scoop!
