Our Moderator Emily gives hard-hitting stories of food in the news to our panelists and they discuss their attitudes and opinions in our Weekly Baste Segment. This week we discuss chocolate, complaining at restaurants, spirit foods and CBD. Our guest for The Weekly Grill is Nate Hodge, co-founder and Head Chocolate Maker at Raaka Chocolate, a nationally distributed bean-to-bar chocolate company based in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Nate appears as a featured subject in the film, Setting the Bar (2017), a documentary that focuses on the leading role Raaka has taken in the craft chocolate movement’s focus on sustainable cocoa sourcing. Every year, Raaka releases 24 unique chocolate bars inspired by recipes from all over the world, and in collaboration with local chefs and artisans. Nate is also married to Catherine Greeley, Vice President and Director of Mail Order at Heritage Foods.
