Logan’s 27th annual chocolate festival is where amateur and professional chefs put their chocolate skills to the test.
In 1987, the Logan Planned Parenthood Advisory board created the chocolate festival as a way to raise money and interact with the community.
Over the last 26 years, the number of entries has ranged from 30 to 75. But one constant group of professionals emerge- the pastry chefs of Crumb Brothers Artisan Bread. Why? Well, because it's tradition.
"Crumb Brothers has done this since Crumb Brothers has been around. It's a fun tradition. It involves the whole community," said chef Samantha Powell.
Powell is joined by chefs Jen Rudd and Kanako Arnold in this year's competition team. With a history of winning, they say the pressure to do well is on.
"There is some pressure. It's fun and it's exciting. Really, I get so many ideas from the amateur division. They are so creative. But yes, there's a little pressure. You think you have to do something better and something more creative every year," Powell said.
"If it doesn't win, what does that say about it?" Rudd said.
"Did we fail the person before us? Things like that," Powell said.
