Meet Daniel. He's the proverbial kid in a candy store, only he's a master chocolatier let loose in his own chocolate confection boutique where he gleefully talks shop with all who share his obsession.
What's his recipe? The freshest cocoa beans, pure cocoa butter and his super special secret: heating the chocolate three times at various temperatures.
His inspiration? Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp's incarnation,) Yia Yia (that's Greek for grandmother) and his own pure imagination.
His latest adventure? Creating a new line of chocolate bars and celebrating his chocolate truffles' appearance on the ABC sitcom, Ugly Betty.
Where can you find him? Between North Market Cookware and Firdous Express. Boxing up hand-dipped chocolates, truffles, nut clusters and pretzels by the piece of the pound every single day.
