Death by Chocolate is a fantastic fund raiser that is into it’s second year. Organiser, Les Alberts first saw this event in America as a presenter and thought it was a great way to raise funds for local causes. He was also impressed with the great Chefs on the Fraser Coast and thought that it would be a great way to showcase them.
Last year $2650 was raised for Act for Kids, based in Maryborough, this group look after kids in distress.
This year all money raised will be going to the Riding for the Disabled Association. This will assist the Association in their fund raising efforts building a covered pavilion to ride in. As it stands now all riders and horses are exposed to the elements.
The idea is that there are six chefs, and each chef creates their own chocolate creation in front of the audience. While the audience are sampling the creations the chef has a chance to talk about how their dish was made and a little bit about their business as well.
At the end of the night the audience get to pick the People’s Choice Award for the best creation. There is also a trophy for ‘The Most Unique Ingredient Combination, and the best Visual Presentation. These last two awards are presented by a Judge.
