A cold round of golf demands a hot beverage, and our three-day sampling of hot chocolates  got the panel sweating – particularly when we labored through that sinful portion of the program rated X (for those of legal drinking age).

Olga Stamatiou has a few golf clubs, but she doesn’t use them. She’s too busy depicting the game that she saw all around her when she moved from Greece to Beaufort, South Carolina, 10 years ago.
