And for the more health conscious patrons, b Naked Chocolates offered a selection of wholesome, all-natural treats. However, we chose The Naked Brunette truffle and found it in serious need of some conditioner. The chocolate truffle, sinless as it may have been, could not be saved from the dry texture found too often in "healthy" desserts.
For festival patrons craving something more elaborate than truffles, Tracy Dempsey's Originals greeted them with a chocolate meringue tart and a Hostess-inspired chocolate dipped cupcake, both accompanied by a passion fruit crema. The petite pastries were a popular pick among the crowd and served as a nice introduction to the other tables at the event (maybe even too nice as it set the bar a little too high for some of the other festival participants).
