What a show Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio has for you this Sunday. We have Chef Christopher Siversen the owner of Maritime Parc near Liberty State Park with panoramic views of the Hudson River, Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island, and the Manhattan, New York skyline. He also runs Burg at Military Park in Newark, New Jersey next to New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC). Chef Chris's restaurants have been named one of the Best in New Jersey 6 years in a row by New Jersey Monthly Magazine. Also, Chef Chris's menus have garnered praise from The New York Times, Crain's New York Business, WCBS Newsradio 880, GAYOT.com - The Guide to the Good Life, The Wall Street Journal and Inside Jersey.

 

Good food deserves a good drink, but you say you want to have your cake and eat it too. Well your in luck! Full Spirited Flavours - Liqueur Cakes, one of the best known liquor infused bakery's that ships cakes worldwide and is based in the Philly area will be visiting us. Owners Sue Katein, Carole Algier, and Kathy Lanyon here to tell us how this match made in heaven happens.

 

Food, booze, and cake sounds like a party to me, and what kind of a party is better than a PIZZA PARTY? Well the crew from Visit Valley Forge’s marketing team Dan Weckerly and Joe Tacynec is also joining us in studio as they slice through the competition to find out which local pie is primo in Montco’s Best Pizza Tourney. The tourism board launched a bracketed competition – NCAA March Madness-style – pitting 64 pizza palaces against each other and down to the final 8. The best-pizza topic reached more than 400,000 people on Facebook, and its associated YouTube videos were watched more than 80,000 times.

 

Each of the 64 contenders was also given a marketing kit, delivered by hand in a carton that resembled a personal pizza box. Inside were giveaway magnets, a pad of tear-off voting requests (to accompany customers’ checks) and a copy of Crave, the VFTCB’s award-winning dining guide. Chiaro's Pizza & Restaurant was winner last year and is still in the running this year against Vinny's Pizzarama, Bacco Restaurant, Penny's Pizza, Nippers Bar and Pizza, BRAVO PIZZA WORCESTER, Nicoletta KOP, and Angelo's Pizza. Who will win???

 

STILL NOT ENOUGH???
