This week on The Main Course, hosts Alexes McLaughlin and Phillip Gilmour welcome Bushwick neighbor Daniel Sklaar, founder and chocolatier of FINE & RAW to the show. FINE & RAW is a chocolate company started in a notorious Williamsburg, Brooklyn, originally in an artist loft. He recounts that a nonsensical obsession with chocolate left him inspired to begin making small chocolate batches. Daniel shared them with friends then started delivering them on his bicycle to small local purveyors. The stock was good - the purveyors wanted more, which allowed Daniel to leave his job in finance. The group embarks on a global conversation about steak, food, quality Cuban food, and coffee. After the break, Daniel shares exactly how he started making his own raw chocolate, distinguishing raw chocolate from ordinary chocolate (there's no traditional roasting involved), and what's next for him and FINE & RAW. This program was brought to you by Whole Foods Market.

"I had my secret chocolate lab, my loft in Williamsburg in 2007 and was just jamming confections with friends... it was super organic." [7:30]

"It's the best thing about New York - you can travel the whole world through food." [16:00]

"As soon as I started working with chocolate there was this massive, gravitational force pulling me in." [20:30]

It's Valentine's Day, and there's no better way to celebrate than by indulging with some luxurious chocolate! This week on A Taste of the Past, Linda Pelaccio is joined in the studio by Clay Gordon. Clay authored the book Discover Chocolate, is the moderator of The Chocolate Life, and host of HRN's Straight From the Source. Learn about the origins of chocolate south of the equator, and learn some chocolate terminology. How does one define a 'single origin' chocolate bar? How did the Industrial Revolution and mechanized production shape the chocolate tastes of the world? Hear Clay talk about his recent trip to Peru, and explains how different types of cacao beans ferment. What distinguishes 'good' chocolate from 'bad' chocolate? Tune into this special Valentine's Day edition of A Taste of the Past! This program has been brought to you by The International Culinary Center.

"The closer you get to more genetic diversity, the closer you get to the place of origin." [6:10]

"Every part of the human condition you can connect to chocolate in a meaningful way." [20:40]
