Nick Malgieri's Chocolate
Throughout its three-thousand-year history, chocolate has deeply affected the soul, psyche, and international economics of mankind. Though no longer used as currency, bartering for part of a candy bar is still a common occurrence in school yards all over America. It was Nick Malgieri's first taste of an orange-flavored white chocolate candy bar given to him at age five by his father that began his life-long obsession with chocolate, and it initiated more than 45 years of research that has resulted in Chocolate - from simple Cookies to extravagant Showstoppers.
As director of the baking program at Peter Kump's New York Cooking School, a traveling cooking school teacher and a regular substitute host on TVFN's "Cooking Live," Malgieri never stops sharing his culinary knowledge; encouraging both students and home bakers, and spreading his passion for chocolate.
