Everyday Business | Mousse sighting in Chelan

Judges in Chelan’s Christmas Dessert Taste-Off announced a winner Saturday after days of deliberation and near overdoses of chocolate and caramel. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta chew it.

Campbell’s Bistro, the popular resort’s downstairs eatery, took the top honor — the 2013 Sugar Plum Award — with their Chocolate Mousse Pie with chocolate cookie crust. The three judges, all on total sugar highs, ricocheted off the walls for 15 minutes before basing their decision on taste, visual appeal, level of satisfaction and other qualities.

Evaluations of the final four desserts were darned close, according the Historic Downtown Chelan Association, the competition’s sponsor. Also dishing up goodies were Bear Foods Café Creperie (Chocolate and Banana Crepe with a side of fresh strawberries), Valerie’s Waterfront Bistro (Caramel Apple Cheesecake) and Local Myth Pizza (Winter Mocha Cheesecake with chocolate ganache topping).

By the way, the judges were no slouches. The panel included Scott Anderson, president of North Cascades Bank; Wendy Isenhart, city council member; and Cindy Salazar, the HDCA’s executive director.
