Chocolate Cook-off

by Luke Osteen


If endless weeks of dreary weather have you a little down, cast your gaze toward Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library’s Chocolate Cook-Off, set for noon to 2:00 P.M. Saturday, February 15. Join in the competition or attend to sample these glorious creations.


The Friends of the Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library will stage their immensely popular Chocolate Cook-Off at noon Saturday, February 15.

This delicious and fun event is a community favorite that brings together bakers, chocolate lovers, and library supporters for a once-a-year “choco-stravaganza” to raise funds to support the Library.

Amateurs and professionals are encouraged to create a beautiful and tasty confection using your choice of milk chocolate, white chocolate, dark chocolate or a mixture of any or all three. (Just make sure your dessert is made from scratch and does not include commercially-prepared mixes, doughs, etc.)

Do your best to wow the three-judge panel to win one of multiple awards based on taste, aroma, creativity and eye appeal. You’ll also be contending for the People’s Choice Award, decided by the ballots of those in attendance. Finally, be sure to display your confections creatively for the chance to win The Best Table Decorations.

Anyone interested in entering the cook-off may pick up an application at the front desk of the Cashiers Library. You can also find more information and an online application form at cashiersfriends.com. Each contestant will make one dessert to be judged by the panel, and subsequently auctioned off, as well as additional small bites for the People’s Choice competition. There is no entry fee for bakers.

There is a $6 charge to attend and taste at the event.
