Best of Raw Cacao Contest



First Los Angeles, then New York, now Laura Fox brings the BEST OF RAW Cacao Contest to the Living Light Center in Fort Bragg during the Living Light Chef Showcase: Hot Chefs, Cool Kitchen! And, for the first time ever, the judging will be live streamed so you can watch it in the luxury of your own home! Find out what the judges think of each chocolate entry as they taste and comment. Mark your calendar for Thursday afternoon, August 26 - that's when the judging will take place at our center in Fort Bragg with Laura and her hand-picked team of judges.


People often ask Cherie how she feels about chocolate and since we are hosting Laura Fox's BEST OF RAW Cacao contest here, at the Living Light Center this August, she felt it important to clarify our position on the subject:


Chocolate is a charming character with a bit of a mixed reputation. Some claim that it has innumerable health benefits, while others won't consume it at all based upon health concerns. Here at Living Light Culinary Arts Institute, we've made it our mission to support everyone on his or her journey for better health. We do not consider chocolate to be a food group, super food or supplement, but instead consider it to be a celebration food to be consumed in moderation. We know that we as humans do not eat for nutritional purposes alone, but also for emotional support, nostalgia, and sometimes just to feed our spirits. For this reason we do support our students, clients, and staff in creating desserts that include chocolate as a component, while encouraging them to use the highest quality ingredients and alternative sweeteners. That way, when special occasions arise, foods like chocolate can be enjoyed in the healthiest possible way. It is for these reasons that Living Light International is proud to be a sponsor of Laura Fox's 3rd BEST OF RAW Cacao Contest. We will be hosting this contest during our annual Living Light Chef Showcase: Hot Chefs, Cool Kitchen, August 26-29, 2010 at the Living Light Center in Fort Bragg, California.
