Amano Artisan Chocolate, Orem, and High West Distillery, Park City, are finalists in this year’s Good Food Awards, which recognizes artisan food producers for creating top-quality products that meet high environmental and socially responsible standards.
Amano’s Chuao 70 percent Dark Chocolate is one of 14 finalists in the chocolate category; while High West’s OMG Pure Rye whiskey is one of 18 finalists in the spirits category. Awards also are given in seven other categories including beer, charcuterie, cheese, coffee, confections, pickles and preserves.
During blind-taste tests, judges selected the finalists from a field of 1,366 entries, 40 percent more than last year, according to director Sarah Weiner. The winners will be announced in Jan. 18 at a ceremony at the San Francisco Ferry Building; and the products will sampled during a special marketplace on Jan. 19.
