I am Dr. Chocolate. In 2008, I earned a PhD from the University of Washington by studying chocolate. Now, I am on the hunt for the best chocolate in the world.

Saturday lineup: NW Chocolate Festival

Just one day to go now until the festing begins. Tomorrow this time I'll be at the Seattle Center, getting ready for the start of the Northwest Chocolate Festival -- the largest gathering of bean-to-bar makers, educators, and confectioners in the Pacific Northwest.

Buy your tickets now, they're going fast! http://nwchocolate.com/

As Education Director, I'll be on stage pretty much all day doing talks and other events. Tomorrow's lineup:

10am - Politics of Single Origins talk, World of Chocolate Room

11am - Meet the Maker interview with Amano's Art Pollard, a live interview for the volume I am co-editing with Brian Cisneros for UW Press, Chocolate: Turning the Wheels of the Food Revolution

1pm - Moderating panel, Sin or Saint? Guilty Pleasure or Healthy Treat: The Nature of What Draws us to Chocolate, with fabulous panelists Aaron Barthel of Intrigue, Autumn Martin of Hot Cakes, AJ Wentworth of Chocolate Conspiracy, Audrey McManus of Babeland, and Karlie Markendorf of Aphrodite's Attic.

5pm - Interview with Colin Gasko of Rogue Chocolate, also for edited volume.

See you there, come hungry!
