Caramelpalooza 2012: Call for Entries

Hold onto your dental work, Phoenix. It's that time again.

Caramelpalooza 2012 will take place Friday, March 2, at Smeeks candy shop in central Phoenix, from 7 p.m. til the caramel runs out.

And we're looking for chefs interested in participating in this year's third-annual caramel tasting, co-sponsored by Smeeks and Chow Bella.

This year we're mixing things up a bit, with categories both for traditional caramel candies and non-traditional uses of caramel -- think caramel sauce, pudding, ice cream, cookies, cupcakes, even savory foods spiked with our favorite flavor. The more creative the better, as far as we're concerned.

Participants must provide 250 wrapped, labeled samples; and your creations must be made in a commercial kitchen.

Deadline for entering: Tuesday, January 31. Email Amy Silverman at amy.silverman@newtimes.com to enter or with any questions.
