I recently participated in Chocolate deVine, a fundraiser for the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center.  Eight local chocolatiers and twelve wineries set up tables for tastings at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum.  The event also featured a competition for the chocolatiers, including awards such as Most Decadent and Best Tabletop Presentation.  Here are some pictures from the Elements Restaurant and Bar table.  I served chocolate lime cheesecake bites, garnished with lime whipped cream and fresh lime zest.  My table included a three tier chocolate cake which had been covered with fondant and decorated with a chocolate piping design.  The tiers were separated by vases filled with limes.
