Executive Chef Eric Masson, who owns and operates the Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bar in Little River with his wife, Kim, is making one of his signature desserts for the competition - chocolate fondant. In addition to being a chocolate lover, Masson said he wanted to support the event because his 7-year-old daughter, Jolee, is a Girl Scout. Of his daughter's experience, Masson says, "the friendship and discovery you find is worth it... There's a little discipline to it. It is an adventure. It's exciting, and you have experiences that you remember for the rest of your life."
