Chocolate expert, author and father Clay Gordon is this week’s guest on Growing Good. Clay is the author of “Discover Chocolate: The Ultimate Guide to Buying, Tasting and Enjoying Fine Chocolate”, and is opening a chocolate factory right here in Bushwick, Brooklyn around the corner from the Heritage Radio Network studios. Clay also runs TheChocolateLife.com, an online community for chocophiles, and aspiring chocophiles, to explore, learn, and share. Find out about his eclectic background, including a history of hosting radio, and learn more about chocolate fondue, expiration dates, and bean sourcing. This program was sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.


“There are some people who think there’s no such thing as bad chocolate, I am not one of those people. I can tell you first hand there is some pretty atrocious chocolate out there. I always call it chocolate not worth the calories.”

“One of the revelations I had after writing “Discover Chocolate”, is realizing it’s a lot easier to pair chocolate with beer than it is chocolate with wine.”

“From a parenting perspective, having something you’re truly passionate about and just following through with it is one the best things you can do to encourage your children.”
