Last November, I was able to sit down with Hazel in the midst of the hubbub of the Northwest Chocolate Festival in Seattle. Hazel is a HARD-core chocolate fan, and she is a member of the Academy of Chocolate, among other distinctions. Our focus is in talking about her beautiful, endlessly helpful, and intriguing chocolate tasting map. This is a poster designed to help people articulate what it is they taste and smell and experience with fine chocolate, and it is amazing. My 11-year-old daughter was listing off accurate flavor note after note using the map. Hazel is a fun, all-around incredible human, and she is delightful to share a conversation with! Enjoy!
