What would your fantasy meal be? Lobsters, caviar....lots of chocolate? This week we'll take a dip into Willie Wonka's classic chocolate river to celebrate the release of the DVD. And while we're on the subject of chocolate, discover the new sensation: naked chocolate! We also find some retro candies that are being saved from extinction. And if chocolate isn't your thing, find a great wine for a fantasy price with the Flying Wine Man, Andrew Jones. Chat with Brini Maxwell, the Dame Edna of the food and style world. And the founder of eGullet, Stephen Shaw, tells us how to get a coveted restaurant reservation.

The way you set your table creates the atmosphere for a meal. During this encore hour, we'll talk about the designer who changed how Americans think about entertaining. We'll hear about a new cookbook based on the style and menus of Russell Wright, the pioneer designer of the 1950's American modern movement. He didn't just create best-selling dinnerware, he also envisioned a new way to eat. Later, we'll cook up simple, elegant food that's perfect for this classic table setting and lifestyle. We'll also surprise you with gourmet meatless cuisine, find out how to get your kids into the kitchen, and discover the wonderful foods of South America.

Horizons is now located in Philadelphia.
