You think you've had amazing chocolates? Well unless you've had the sumptuous creations of Elizabeth Montes (seen below with pizza), the brain and brawn behind Sahagun (pronounced Saw-goon), you've yet to experience chocolate bliss! This is another culinary delight for you lucky folks in Portland, OR. Her organic chocolates are a mind-bending experience in sweetness and flavor. Among the flavors: chile, hidcote lavender, Yin Hao Jasmine, cardamom, valencia orange, hair-bender lolly chocs (featuring Stumptown’s hair bender blend coffee), Pepitapapa bars, and almond & bergamot bars, and caramels. You can find Sahagun at the Portland Farmer's Market at PSU on Saturdays, (8:30am-2pm). Sahagun Chocolates will be featured on a new cooking show, "Daisy Cooks," produced by channel 13 WNET in New York. Check it out:
