LIVE this Sunday, January 14th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio returns with more foodie fun. We welcome Michael Ungaro the Vice President of San Pedro Fish Market and Restaurant and one of the stars of Kings of FI$H that has had over 40 million viewers and just premiered Season 4 of the show. San Pedro Fish Market is California’s Largest Restaurant; declared one of the Top 10 Most Instragramed restaurant in America a few years in a row, has been awarded 4 Guinness World Records, and with millions served making it literally California's busiest dining destination annually. "Kings of Fi$h" is based on three generations of the San Pedro Fish Market family who have been in the fish business since 1956, and the hilarious series highlights the entrepreneurial family spirit and frames the strong characters that make up this booming family run business. Featured on Foodbeast for the restaurant's world famous mouthwatering "Super Tray," the San Pedro Fish Market and the Ungaro family attract not only LA locals, but people from around the world, including celebrities such as Sofia Vergara lookalike Tati Polo spotlight on a show.The San Pedro Fish Market began their journey 60 years ago in the water front section of the Los Angeles Harbor. The founder Tommy was put in charge of the fish market when he was a teenager along with his cousin Henry. A live seafood section was developed where customers could pick their own Lobster and Crab and have it steamed fresh. Additionally, they developed their own smoked-fish recipe and garnered quite a following for Smoked Halibut, Salmon, Tuna, Cod, Swordfish, and many others. These were the first moves towards selling a cooked, ready-to-eat product and would eventually lead to their "World-Famous Shrimp Tray."
We also welcome Erik Andersson the Brand Ambassador for Hendrick's Ginproduced by William Grant & Sons out of VisitScotland. Founded in 1999, in addition to the traditional juniper infusion, Hendrick's uses Bulgarian rose and cucumber to add flavour. Hendrick's gin is bottled in a dark brown apothecary-style bottle. The Wall Street Journal described Hendrick's as the "Best Gin in the World" and other spirit ratings organizations have been very complimentary as well with San Francisco World Spirits Competitionawarding Hendrick’s Gin two double gold, two gold, and three silver medals and The Beverage Testing Institute giving the gin well-above-average scores of 93, 94 and 95. Sounds Ginrifick to us!
