D and L Coffee Service Inc. presents the #1 listed “Food Radio show Philadelphia”, Small Bites with Donato Marino and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio this Sunday, June 2nd at 635pm EST with a stellar lineup and Courier-Post’s John Howard-Fusco will be in studio as special guest co-host.

We are happy to welcome award-winning creators of the popular travel inspired cooking blog Husbands that Cook, Ryan Alvarez and Adam Merrinwho have written their very first vegetarian cookbook: HUSBANDS THAT COOK (St. Martin's Press Griffin). Written with the same endearing, can-do spirit of their blog, the husbands present more than 120 brand-new recipes―plus some greatest hits from the site―that yield delicious results every time. Each entry in Husbands That Cook is a reminder of how simple and satisfying vegetarian meal-making can be, from hearty main dishes and sides to healthy snacks and decadent desserts and drinks. Ryan and Adam also outline common pantry items and everyday tools you’ll need to fully stock your kitchen. Whether you’re cooking for one or feeding the whole family, this book is chock-full of great creative recipes for every day of the week, all year long. Adam is one of the founding members of the indie-rock band The 88 and Ryan sings classical music and acts in TV shows and commercials.

In studio we are ecstatic to be joined by Jessica Jenkins the Director of Marketing & Communications for FCM Hospitality. FCM Hospitality is a Philadelphia-based hospitality and entertainment company, managing bars, restaurants and seasonal pop-ups throughout the region. The company is owned by Avram Hornik, a leader with more than 20 years in the hospitality industry, who has created some of the area’s most popular permanent and temporary venues in the city. Jessica will talk about their newest venture Craft Hall which is an experiential dining, drinking and entertainment concept. It is home to Mainstay Independent Brewery, Lost Bread Co. Bakery, a fully furnished kitchen, two bars and several seating areas. Guests will get to see how the beer is brewed, bread is baked, and food is cooked along with other interactive elements like a playground for kids and adults alike, lawn games, a live music stage and more. They invite guests to watch how the flour is milled, meat is smoked, and beer is brewed, providing a unique experience and better understanding of the foods' origins and craftsmanship that went into creating them. She will also chat about one of Philly’s favorite waterfront destinations Morgan's Pier which is Philadelphia’s backyard beer garden. Morgan’s Pier is named after George C. Morgan, a construction worker on the Benjamin Franklin Bridge 85 years ago, who is credited as being the first person to cross the bridge. He defied his boss' orders and shimmied across the wires before the deck was completed. Each season, Morgan’s Pier invites a different celebrated chef to take over the kitchen with their own version of a chef-hosted backyard barbecue, allowing a larger population of Philadelphia and its visitors to enjoy the casual cuisine while soaking up the outdoors and its scenery just steps from the Ben Franklin Bridge. In 2015, Morgan's Pier was named "Most Popular Bar in Pennsylvania" by BuzzFeed. We can’t wait!

Hailing from NYC, and with celebrity fans such as Denis Leary, we are pleased to have on New York City Fire Department (FDNY) Lt. John Sierpout of Ladder 8 in Tribeca with his newest restaurant endeavor Home BaseBistro in Murray Hill.

John’s acclaimed cooking embody’s the spirit of New York: diverse, progressive, and timeless. His latest cullinary endeavour, Home Base, is a collaboration with the rising entertainment connoisseurs at One Creative Marketing Group. Dubbed as an “American Bistro” the cuisine will represent a mix of John’s famous dishes and new boundary pushing menu items devised specifically for this restaurant.

Circling back to Philly and representing Philadelphia in season 12 of Ink Master: Battle Of The Sexes which premieres Tuesday, June 11th at 10 pm EST on Paramount Network Viacom we can’t wait to talk to Fon from Money & Ink Tattoo & Body Piercing Studio. This season, titled Ink Master: Battle Of The Sexes, features teams of male and female artists competing against each other in the ultimate battle for a chance to win $100,000, an editorial feature in Inked and the coveted “Ink Master” title. In addition, past contestants and fan favorites will return throughout the season to coach the teams in various challenges during the competition. Throughout the competition, the artists will be tested on their technical skills along with their on-the-spot creativity, as they must conceive and execute original tattoos on “human canvases.” Each episode will focus on a different and distinct style of tattooing and, as always, while the artists’ masterpieces will last a lifetime, so will their mistakes. Contestants face a tough panel made up of Dave Navarro (musician, filmmaker and artist) and renowned tattoo artists Chris Núñez (Handcrafted Tattoo And Art Gallery) and Oliver Pecker (Elm Street Tattoo).

Then we are thrilled have on Mark Matthews who is the person behind the keyboard on one of South Jersey’s most popular blogs 42 Freeway that was recently spotlighted by Kevin Riordan in the philly.com The Philadelphia Inquirer. If there is something going on in South Jersey around Camden County Government and Gloucester County NJ, there is a good chance Mark has a pulse of what is happening with the who, what, why, and where. Whether it is a new restaurant, store, road change, or closures Mark has been the first to break these types of stories many times and is quickly become an authority and the go to voice for many in these communities.

Food is Teri’s love language, and her approach to getting people into the kitchen, rolling up their sleeves, and cooking is contagious. Teri’s recipes, most of which are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and Whole30 compliant, are what makes No Crumbs Left so unique.

Well Last summer, Fanwood Grille established themselves as a destination for fans of authentic Maine lobster rolls, and now has a growing reputation for its foot-long hot dogs. The eatery serves home-cooked food made on-premises with fresh ingredients and a little flair. (This in addition to having a classic diner/luncheonette menu of breakfast, burgers, grilled cheese, salads, soups and granola made from scratch on premises.) Some customers believe the Chicken Noodle Soup is almost medicinal and call in advance to reserve it because it sells so quickly. Along with other classics like Lobster Bisque, creamy Butternut Squash, and the award-winning New England Clam Chowder, chef Paul Watterson has invented soups including Mango Chicken Habanero, Falafel Soup (vegan and gluten-free),Italian Hot Dog Soup, and Cream of Thanksgiving Soup.

From its captivating cover to the bounty of advice found in real people's stories, the pages are packed with useful insights and suggestive recipes. This is a must-read for everyone in a relationship vegan-with-a-nonvegan, or anyone who has a vegan friend. Better than a romance novel that whisks you away to fantasy, Dating Vegans is genuine. It is a catalyst for reevaluating your own interactions with other people whether you are the vegan or the other person. Where am I now? What is certain? What might I compromise? What would I do if I met a person like that? Will I make a recipe? This powerful function of the book can appeal to anyone, regardless of the relationship situation. Anne Dinshah has applicable tips for getting a date or keeping together long-term. Learn how to share information, so that vegan values get just consideration, without being socially abrasive to those not yet holding these ideals. This book will not sit on your shelf for long. You might read the dating portion once or twice, but you or your date can cook the recipes over and over for each other. Or take the book out in public. You might pick up a date if seen reading it!

So with your date secured by reading Dating Vegans and your lovely gift for them purchased at UntamedHearts Jewelry, all you need now is somewhere to go out and take them to enjoy a great meal. Well why not reserve a table for your special Valentine’s Day night out at Chubby's 1 1/2 Hearth Steakhouse in Gloucester City, New Jersey. You say a steakhouse for a Vegan? Well you’d be surprised as they offer a little something for everyone while also serving some of the best steaks around for those meat lovers since they were just listed by Jason Sheehan in Philadelphia Magazine as one of MUST try Steakhouses in Philadelphia in their Ultimate Guide as well as reviewed by Christina Carrell for the popular blog Fork in the Pines.

For the first time in the show’s history, eight accomplished chefs who have competed in previous seasons – and lost – will be brought back for a shot at redemption and tested like never before, as they go up against eight ambitious rookies. Each week, the chefs will be put through a series of grueling culinary challenges and dinner services to prove to Chef Ramsay they have what it takes to win a life-changing grand prize: a position at the world’s first Gordon Ramsay Hell's Kitchen Las Vegas at Caesars Palace in Visit Las Vegas and $250,000.

Closer to home, we are excited to chat with Mike Traud who is the Drexel University - Center for Food and Hospitality Management Program Director. On Sunday, March 10 and Monday, March 11, Drexel University’s annual Philly Chef Conference will return to University City, drawing top-level culinary and hospitality talent from around the world to Philadelphia. Tickets for all events will go on sale the same day that the full agenda is posted online: Wednesday, January 16 at 12 noon. “Our annual Chef’s Conference is the centerpiece of our year-round programming, bringing the best and brightest in the culinary world right to our students here in Philadelphia,” says Traud, JD, Ed.D, himself an alum of Vetri under Marc Vetri and Zeppoli under Joey Baldino. “This year’s line-up is our most robust yet, and we can’t wait to welcome these luminaries to Philadelphia and share their talents with our students – and our city’s thriving restaurant culture with them.” The annual Philly Chef Conference regularly sells out, and 2019 tickets are limited, so guests are encouraged to purchase theirs at once, to guarantee their seat at the proverbial table. A current list of participants is available at the bottom of this post.

Now, do you struggle finding the perfect gift for those you can’t personally deliver it to? Well we will be joined by Denise Fuchs the founder and CEO of Bloombaes because Bloombaes was sparked by a quest to make long distance gift giving a little more special. When she couldn't find anything online beyond the gift delivery mainstays - flowers, gift cards, gourmet baskets, etc. - she decided take her favorite parts of those classics and create something new. The result was a handmade bouquet of chocolate truffles. It is beautiful, delicious, and thoughtful. A Bloombae is a handcrafted chocolate bouquet. It’s a colorful combination of melt-in-your-mouth chocolate truffles and keepsake sola wood flowers, wrapped in smooth floral sheeting, and most importantly - made with love.

The #1 listed "food radio show Philadelphia" from Google and Bing is back LIVE this Sunday, October 21st at 635pm. That's right Derek is back in studio and Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio is a #Foodie star studded spectacular!

Things get started with Ingrid Hoffmann who has partnered with the American Diabetes Association to publish “Latin Comfort Foods Made Healthy (Clásicos latinos a lo saludable): More than 100 diabetes-friendly Latin favorites”. The book celebrates the joys of cooking and eating healthier versions of traditional Latin recipes bursting with flavor while staying within the nutritional guidelines of the ADA and relying on Ingrid’s concept of delicious, easy, and simple recipes with a healthy twist. Raised in Colombia and the Netherlands, Ingrid Hoffmann is a professional eater, author and host of Top ChefEstrellas (Telemundo, NBC), Simply, Delicioso (Cooking Channel) and Delicioso(Univision) is passionate about cooking, entertaining, and helping her fans lead a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Via her cookbooks, “chica tips” and social media platforms, Ingrid hopes to educate her followers about “better for you” ingredients, implementing cooking habits and to think of food as medicine. With this in mind, in 2015, Ingrid launched her very own food brand, Cocina by Ingrid Hoffmann, which focuses on easy, delicious and healthy meal solutions for the family. She writes a monthly column for Delta Air Lines Delta Sky Magazine and AARP en Español and is a frequent guest of shows like Un Nuevo Día, The Talk, Oprah, Martha Stewart, The View, The Today Show, The Early Show, and The Wendy Williams Show.

Then we talk to Dorie Greenspan who has a new book “Everyday Dorie: The Way I Cook” from Rux Martin/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt being released October 23rd and available for pre-order on Amazon.com. To the hundreds of thousands who follow her on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, Dorie Greenspan’s food is powerfully cookable—her recipes instant classics. In Everyday Dorie, she invites readers into her kitchen to savor the dishes that she makes all the time, from Miso-Glazed Salmon to Lemon Goop. What makes a “Dorie recipe”? Each one has a small surprise that makes it special. The dishes are practical, made with common ingredients from the supermarket, farmers’ market, or pantry, like Sweet Chili Chicken Thighs, which is both weeknight simple and fine enough for company, and Eton Mess, a beautifully casual dessert of crumbled meringue, fruit, and whipped cream. They are easygoing, providing swaps and substitutions. They invite mixing and matching. Many can be served as dinner, or as a side dish, or as an appetizer, or hot, cold, or room temperature. And every single one is like a best friend in the kitchen, full of Dorie’s infectious love of cooking and her trademark hand-holding directions. Inducted into the James Beard Foundation’s Who’s Who of Food and Beverage in America, Dorie Greenspan is also the author of Dorie's Cookies, a 2017 James Beard Award-winner for Best Baking and Dessert book; Around My French Table, a New York Times bestseller that was named Cookbook of the Year by the IACP: The International Association of Culinary Professionals, Baking Chez Moi, also a Times bestseller; and Baking: From My Home to Yours, another James Beard Award winner.

To talk about the most important meal of the day, we will be joined by Ryan Grim who is the editor of Extra Crispy and has new book “Breakfast: The Most Important Book About the Best Meal of the Day: The Most Important Book About the Best Meal of the Day” from Oxmoor House Books being released October 23rd and available for pre-order on Amazon.

This celebration of the most popular meal of the day offers engaging stories, essential how-tos, and killer breakfast recipes. Discover exciting new ingredients and the secrets to making Entenmann’s Cake Doughnuts and Taco Bell Crunchwraps at home, among many other dishes. Learn the origins of scrapple and how to brew barista-level drinks. Based on the popular website ExtraCrispy.com, this book—the perfect gift for anyone who loves all-day-breakfast—is packed with 100 photos, humorous illustrations, and amazing, craveable food. Ryan was previously the deputy editor of Tasting Table, but covering all three meals was too much of a burden, so he decided to get into the breakfast media world. Before that, he was the managing editor of VICE magazine. Now Extra Crispy is the authority on breakfast, brunch, and every nook and cranny of morning culture. It is the leader of the growing global breakfast trend, showcasing celebrity chefs and emerging voices.

Last, but certainly not least we are thrilled to welcome Steven Cook the co-author of new cookbook “Israeli Soul: Easy, Essential, Delicious” from Rux Martin/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Usually served from tiny eateries, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, or market stalls, these food specialties have passed from father to son or mother to daughter for generations. To find the best versions, the authors Michael Solomonov and Steven Cook scoured bustling cities like Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Haifa, and sleepy towns on mountaintops. They visited bakeries, juice carts, beaches, even weddings. Their finds include meals in the hand like falafel and pita; juicy, grilled and roasted spice-rubbed meats; stuffed vegetables; a wealth of chopped vegetable salads; a five-minute fluffy hummus with more than two dozen toppings; pastries, ice creams, and shakes and adapted every recipe for the home kitchen. Each chapter weaves history with contemporary portrayals of the food. Striking photographs capture all its flavor and vitality, while step-by-step how-to and close-ups of finished dishes make everything simple and accessible. Steven Cook is the co-founder of CookNSolo Restaurant Partners. He is the co-author of Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking, winner of two James Beard Awards in 2016 for "Best International Cookbook" and "Book of the Year". Cook also sits on Broad Street Ministry Hospitality and Corporate Council, which supports Broad Street's mission of providing meals and social services to Philadelphia's most vulnerable citizens. Prior to founding CookNSolo, Cook was the owner and executive chef of Marigold Kitchen. Cook is a graduate of the The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and the The-French-Culinary-Institute. He left a job as an investment banker in New York to return to Philadelphia and pursue a career as a hospitality entrepreneur overseeing highly acclaimed and award winning Zahav Federal Donuts, Abe Fisher, Dizengoff, The Roosterand Goldie Falafel restaurants.

LIVE this Sunday, October 7th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio, has a stellar lineup. To kick the show off, we will party with Hannah Jo with the Wildfire Radio PRIEMIRE of her new smash single “Closer” that is going viral as well as heavy play at clubs. She is excited to have our listeners hear from her and what a great way to get things started.

Also, we are thrilled to welcome Michael Tuono the owner T&N HomeMade Kitchen and the Jeet Mobiles. With signature menu items like The Frankie Five Stents, The Sunday Gravy, The Cubano Paesano, and Da’ Bomb (Omelet Stuffed Pancake), T&N Homemade Kitchen has been wowing patrons and having their taste buds dance for years and now they will be sharing these delights to the Northern Liberties section of Philly very soon with T&N Homemade Kitchen - Northern Liberties. They are a family-owned deli offering a large selection of sandwiches, plus burgers, wings & breakfast eats. We can only hope that they bring samples of these delicacies.

Then we have Brandi Shine Doming the founder of the extremely popular blog The Vegan 8 and now a blogger turned author with her debut cookbook “The Vegan 8: 100 Simple, Delicious Recipes Made with 8 Ingredients or Less” from Oxmoor House Books Time Inc. Books being released October 16th and available now for pre-order on Amazon.com. Five years ago, popular blogger Brandi Doming of The Vegan 8 became a vegan, overhauling the way she and her family ate after a health diagnosis for her husband. The effects have been life-changing. Her recipes rely on refreshingly short ingredient lists that are ideal for anyone new to plant-based cooking or seeking simplified, wholesome, family-friendly options for weeknight dinners. All of the recipes are dairy-free and most are oil-free, gluten-free, and nut-free (if not, Brandi offers suitable alternatives), and ideally tailored to meet the needs of an array of health conditions. Each of the 100 recipes uses just 8 or fewer ingredients (not including salt, pepper, or water) to create satisfying, comforting meals from breakfast to dessert that your family—even the non-vegans—will love. Brandi is a mom, wife, designer, and blogger. Her blog was voted a Top 21 Vegan Blog of 2016 by the hugely popular vegan magazine, VegNews Magazine, she’s appeared regularly in FORKS OVER KNIVES magazine, and was featured in the documentary Eating You Alive.

All the way on the West Coast we say hello to Renata Lubinsky the author of “Around Seattle in 80 Dates: An Online Dating Journey” from CreateSpaceIndependent Publishing Platform. After thirty-two years in one relationship, Renata M. Lubinsky divorced her husband and started a journey that she crafted on a daily basis, by using online dating sites. Renata's massive experience in the online dating world and her love for the unexpected provided her with mesmerizing material that will make you laugh out loud in some stories, and in others, make you cry. Renata uses her witty and sensitive voice to describe the world from the perspective of a single, almost fifty-year-old woman starting the second chapter of her life. In the past few years, Renata has taken her stories on stage and performed in different stand-up events around Seattle. She has won first place in local stand-up competitions and participated in various storytelling shows. We can’t wait to hear about this journey.

Then Oh, Canada we say hello to Cara Clarkson the Manager of Guest Services for The The Rimrock Resort Hotel in Banff, Alberta Canada.

LIVE this Sunday, August 19th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio will be a special episode hosted by Chetna Macwan the founder of Spice Culture Cooking, an Indian Cooking instructor, and an award winning chef. She will be joined by Small Bites Radio’s resident #Vegan Chef Christina Martin.

They are thrilled to welcome Jesse McDonald and Cole Forrest of New Wing Order Food Truck who serve award-winning wings and Southern grub. New Wing Order is a hot wing focused food truck hitting the streets of Memphis! In addition to award-winning wings, they offer delicious dishes like Buffalo Chicken Tacos and BBQ Nachos. It started as a group of friends who loved hot wings – fried, grilled, smoked – you name it, they ate it. They would count down the days to the Southern Hotwing Festival. The event is like no other, featuring more than 70 competition cooking teams making the best wings in the South. They’d go each year, partake of amazing wings, and watch as a new team was crowned Grand Champion. After years of developing their own recipes, they decided to throw their hat in the ring and began competing. They made finals their inaugural year competing in the Southern Hot Wing Festival. After a couple more years of creating and perfecting new flavors, they took home the Grand Championship in 2015, Third Place in 2016, the Grand Championship in 2017, and Second Place in 2018! One of the team members, Jesse McDonald, had been working in the culinary industry for years and looked at the success at the festival, the biggest one of its kind in the South, as a sign these wings should be available to Memphians year round.

Then in studio is Madura Sotolongo, the Founder of The Chai Bar. She came to the U.S. as a graduate student of Financial Engineering at Temple University in the Summer of 2014 after completing her undergrad in Math and master’s in International Business in India. She ended up getting an 8 am desk job at Comcast as a Data Analyst right after her graduation. While at work she got Chai tea cravings and would often go to coffee shops in search of a good cup. She soon realized that if she wanted a real cup of Chai she would have to brew her own. This led Madura to brew for her friends as well and she really enjoyed sharing Chai and culture with an expanding group of friends and Chai lovers. She left Comcast in the spring of 2017 to start working on The Chai Bar and was up and running in farmers markets that fall. Her love for all things Chai and disappointment at the lack of availability of good Chai at coffee shops drove her to quit her job and purse this dream of introducing a real cup of Chai in American lifestyle. Chai is a most loved and served Indian drink and Madura says, it takes practice and patience to brew this surprisingly simple drink to make. A fresh and delicious cup of Chai is a work of alchemy. The Chai Bar in Philadelphia welcomes you to experience this wonderful experience called Chai in its most authentic form made from freshly ground spices with love and recipes that’s been handed down generations over centuries. So, don’t forget when you sip a cup of Chai it’s not just a blend of spices and tea with milk, it’s the amalgamation of popular culture, tradition, diversity, history and stories in one cup!

Also in studio will be Natasha Bhalla a Health & Wellness Coach for Prana Wellness & Health. Natasha has fused her knowledge, experience and passion into programs and workshops that empower individuals to take control of their health and wellness. Through vital nutrition and self-care techniques, Natasha offers the knowledge and skills necessary to increase prana, a Sanskrit word that mean “life force energy,” which is critical to feeling well and happy. Natasha’s mission is to help women and men become their healthiest versions naturally. A breast cancer survivor and thriver, Natasha is well-versed in healing the body through nutrition, meditation, and is a Reiki practioner. She uses different modalities that foster physical, mental and emotional wellness, as well as, energetic healing in her clients. Natasha has been in the beauty industry for more than 15 years and has experience both behind-the-chair as a makeup artist and as a marketing and communications professional, giving her great insight into cosmetologists’ lifestyles and needs. A graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Natasha gained her Health Coaching certificate in 2011 and prior to this, she graduated as a Makeup Artist from the Christine Valmy International School Institute. Natasha attended Pace University for her undergraduate studies and has a BA in Mass Communications and Marketing. Now that is what I call a show!

LIVE this Sunday, August 12th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio, sitting in with Glenn as special Co-host this week is John Cohl the Editor in Chief for Mobile Food News, Philly Mobile Food Association Ambassador that Rob Mitchell is President of, and John is partner with Corner Pub Kitchen's Ron Sullivan. They’re going to have a smoking good time welcoming on the show Tuffy Stone to talk about his new cookbook Cool Smoke: The Art of Great Barbecue from St. Martin's Press. For backyard barbecuers who are interested in taking on the competition circuit, Cool Smoke offers tips and tricks from one of the best in the business. Stone’s competition secrets―gleaned from more than a decade of success on the circuit―have never before been shared beyond the walls of his cook school in Richmond, Virginia. Cool Smoke gives an insider’s look behind the scenes and offers advice on creating perfect competition turn-ins that have made Tuffy Stone a World Champion five times over. With mouthwatering recipes, over 200 hundred color photos, essential guides to cookers and equipment, and expert advice, Tuffy Stone’s Cool Smoke is the definitive guide to all things barbecue. Why is this book so great? Because Tuffy Stone is a World Record-breaking champion pitmaster, a former Marine, a classically-trained chef, an acclaimed caterer, and an occasional reality television star. Dubbed “The Professor,” Tuffy’s legendary precision and obsession with the science of smoke make him one of the most influential people in barbecue. In the 13 years since he founded Cool Smoke Barbecue, the team has won hundreds of trophies including more than 40 Grand Championships and five World Grand Championships. Cool Smoke is the only team in history to have won the prestigious Jack Daniel's World Championship Barbecue Invitational back to back and the only team to have won it three times, doing so in 2013, 2015, and 2016. As a result of his success on the competition circuit and his extensive knowledge of all things barbecue, he was selected to join Destination America’s show BBQ Pitmasters, in 2012. Tuffy’s life is barbecue has taken him all over the world including cooking for the troops in Kuwait, and heading to Meatstock in Australia to teach his famous Cool Smoke Barbecue Class. Most recently he cooked for sold out crowds at the James Beard Foundation House, a rarity for a barbecue pitmaster.

Then joining them will be Adam Fleischman the author of Flavor Bombs: The Umami Ingredients That Make Taste Explode from Rux Martin Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. ADAM FLEISCHMAN is the creative force behind Umami Burger and 800degreesme Neopolitan Pizza, restaurants with more than 40 locations in California, Chicago, Las Vegas, Dubai, and Japan. He has been profiled in The New Yorker, the New York Times, Wired, and the The Wall Street Journal. The founder of the national empires Umami Burger and 800 Degrees Pizza shows how to detonate flavor in beloved dishes using ordinary ingredients high in umami. Why does everyone love burgers and pizza? When Adam Fleischman investigated, he discovered what they—and many other ultra-flavorful dishes—have in common: umami. A renegade self-taught cook, Fleischman deployed this savory “fifth dimension of taste” to ratchet up flavor using ingredients naturally rich in umami, such as Parmesan, tomatoes, caramelized onions, and anchovy paste. In so doing, he created ultimate versions of icons, including Umami Burger with Port and Stilton, Sweet and Savory Brisket, and Parmesan Fondue. All the recipes are made from the same “umami pantry” ably explicated in the front of the book. This sounds delicious.

Talking more about flavors in studio will be Micheal Van Houten the owner of Bottled Thyme. The artisanal craft of sauce making can be dated as far back as the beginnings of the Roman empire.  Many historians believe that sauces were originally meant to cover up the debatable freshness and quality of the food being served. The good news for us is we live in a time where sauces are a delicate accompaniment, meant to enhance the entire meal. Bottled Thyme is built on the philosophy that the family unit is one of the most important parts of life, and helps bring balance to an otherwise hectic schedule.  One of the most influential times of the day for families is the tradition of sitting around the table, enjoying a nice meal while sharing stories of what the day was like for everyone. What once required an afternoon of preparing and cooking is no longer necessary. Bottled Thyme aims to provide you with the same flavorful and delicious meal, all while not having to sacrifice your time. Their culinarians hand craft each sauce with the same love and devotion as they would if they were cooking for their own families.  The passion, mixed with the highest quality of ingredients conveyed into each sauce leaves our customers excited for more after each bite.

LIVE this Sunday, August 5th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio, we are thrilled to be joined by Virginia Willis to talk about her new cookbook “Secrets of the Southern Table” from Houghton–Mifflin In Secrets of the Southern Table, award-winning chef and cookbook author Virginia Willis takes you on a tour of today's South—a region rich in history and cultural diversity. With her signature charm and wit, Virginia shares many well-known Southern recipes like Pimento Cheese Tomato Herb Pie and "Cathead" Biscuits, but also some surprising revelations drawn from the area's many global influences, like Catfish Tacos with Avocado Crema, Mississippi-Style Char Siu Pork Tenderloin, and Greek Okra and Tomatoes. In addition to the recipes, Virginia profiles some of the diverse chefs, farmers, and other culinary influencers who are shaping contemporary Southern cuisine. Together, these stories and the delicious recipes that accompany them celebrate the rich and ever-evolving heritage of Southern cooking.

LIVE this Sunday, July 29th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio, joining us in studio will be one of our favorite guests Vernon Rochester. Vernon is the owner of Rochester's Barbecue & Grill in Borough of Lawnside, New Jersey. They are doing a relaunch of their menu that we can’t wait to see and try what’s new. They are a BYOB with Wednesday Nights – All You Can Eat BBQ, and also locals love their Friday and Saturday Night Jazz sessions from 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm featuring Michael J Corman, an amazing Keyboardist/Vocalist. They focus on soul food, barbecue, and southern cooking, but with locally sourced products as much as possible with a focus on dietary diversity. They do traditionally prepared items on the menu such as their amazing Ollie’s Triple beans, made with ground beef, sausage and bacon and simmered with “secret spices” all the way to a variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes to choose from. You heard right, they also focus on vegetarian and vegan dishes.

Since Rochester’s is a BYOB, we thought we better to join us in studio and talk about what you can bring there to drink than Tom Hendricks the NJ Brand Manager for River Horse Brewing Co.. River Horse brewing was started in 1996 by three brothers who really enjoyed homebrewing. Their original location was in Lambertville, New Jersey right across the bridge from New Hope PA. People often still associate them with that location because many people would walk around New Hope, or bike/run the river trail, and then swing by afterword for a beer. Then in 2007 the brothers were looking to sell the business and it was perfect timing for Chris Walsh and Glenn Bernabeo to take over. Chris and Glen were working in finance, but wanted to get out of the corporate world and start with a new opportunity. They jumped at the chance to own the brewery and took it over in 2007. One of the first things they did was hiring their head brewer, Chris Rakow, to handle making the beer and come up with new recipes. The first original recipe that Rakow made for the company was Hipp-O-Lantern Imperial Pumpkin Ale, which is still one of their most popular seasonal beers. By 2013 they had out grown the brewery in Lambertville and needed to move so they could expand brewing. Their Lambertville brewery was only 10,000 sq feet and two stories, which is not very conducive for brewing beer. In Ewing, New Jersey they found a single level, 25,000 sq ft space that used the same water table as their Lambertville brewery, which is a very important factor in keeping the beer consistent. They are now able to distribute their beers through all of New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, Eastern New York and all of Connecticut.

Then we are thrilled to welcome Becky Selengut the author of two recent books, “How to Taste: The Curious Cook's Handbook to Seasoning and Balance, from Umami to Acid and Beyond--with Recipes” and “Good Fish: 100 Sustainable Seafood Recipes from the Pacific Coast” both published by Sasquatch Books. When she's not squid jigging, fishing, or cavorting through the woods picking wild things for her next meal, Becky Selengut is a private chef, author, humorist, and cooking teacher. A regular instructor for PCC Community Markets and The Pantry, Selengut is also a private chef and author of two other books How to Taste and Shroom: Mind-Bendingly Good Recipes for Cultivated and Wild Mushrooms, and co-author of Not One Shrine: Two Food Writers Devour Tokyo. In her spare time she co-hosts a comedy podcast called Look Inside This Book Club where she reviews only the free Look Inside samples of outrageous romance novels. Selengut lives Seattle - Capitol Hill with her wife and their two dogs.

Talking about cookbooks and podcasts our next guest is an expert on both subjects. When New Yorker Suzy Chase Osborne a former radio personality and cookbook publicist isn’t shooting Instagram stories of her beloved West Village neighborhood, sipping wine at a cozy New York, New York wine bar with her husband, whipping up after-school brownies for her 11-year-old son, shopping at a local grocery for dinner ingredients, assembling her latest Spotify Kitchen Mixtape or DJ’ing in Brooklyn, New York she’s behind the microphone chatting with chefs and cookbook authors. Many believed the internet would spell the end of the cookbook. But true foodies at heart always knew that nothing could break that special bond between tried and true recipe manuals and their love of the kitchen. Hence, the podcast is bringing to life what was once on a page of a cookbook like Suzy Chase’s Cookery by the Book. The 3rd season started in June. Suzy has merged the tried and true love of cooking with a modern flair to help the cookbook transcend new generations, and it’s working. Chase’s Cookery by the Book, now in its third season with more than 90 episodes, is the only cookbook podcast that has featured iconic names like Jacques Pépin, Dorie Greenspan, Pati Jinich, Pierre Thiam and Julia Turshen. It also marks Chase’s second venture into podcasting. A female podcasting pioneer, Chase introduced in 2003 TheGrooveRadio.com, the internet’s longest-running soul music show. She had a monthly residency at Trophy Bar in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn for six years, currently gigs around the city, and podcasts from her West Village apartment where she lives with her husband and pre-teen son.

To top it all off we are so happy to hear from Blaine Heinonen and Sarah Anne Wolff of the band Pretty Gritty with their song “Love Don't Live Here Anymore” that we will play for all of our listeners off their latest album - Seven Year Itch – by CD Baby, C and D Network Publishing, Cannon/Buono Production, and Creative and Dreams Music Network,LLC.

LIVE this Sunday, July 15th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio is another stellar lineup. We welcome Melissa Coleman the author of “The Minimalist Kitchen: 100 Wholesome Recipes, Essential Tools, and Efficient Techniques” from Oxmoor House Books Time Inc. Books. Melissa Coleman is a home cook and baker, designer, wife, mother, and cozy minimalist. Her popular blog, The Fauxmartha, was named a HuffPost Top 10 Food Blog and was selected as a Better Homes & Gardens Top 10 Baking Blog nominee and a SAVEUR Magazine Blog Awards Style & Design finalist. After spending three decades bouncing around the states, she’s happily planted under the snow banks of Minneapolis, Minnesota, with her husband, Kevin, and tiny sous chef, Hallie. Melissa cooks with the rhythm of the week—simple, modern, and mostly vegetarian on weekdays and slow and classic with a heavy dose of brunch on the weekend. She is in the process of decorating The Fauxhouse, their modern, city farmhouse. The Minimalist Kitchen is her first book. The Minimalist Kitchen: 100 Wholesome Recipes, Essential Tools, and Efficient Techniques is a cookbook, but more importantly, it’s a framework for creating a minimalist kitchen, a kitchen pared down to the essentials so you can create more. This framework will touch everything in your kitchen from your ingredients, tools, pantry, to your cooking techniques, meal planning, and shopping habits. Once the framework is in place, you can make 100+ wholesome, mix and match recipes. You'll find Blueberry-Orange Breakfast Rolls, Banana-Coconut Baked Oatmeal, White Wine Spring Pasta, BBQ Black Bean and Quick Slaw Tacos, Crispy Pizza with Caramelized Onions, Chickpea Tikka Masala, Stovetop Mac and Cheese, and Two-Bowl Carrot Cupcakes.

Then we are happy to have join us Chef Todd Richards the author of “SOUL: A Chef's Culinary Evolution in 150 Recipes” from Southern Living. Todd Richards is a self-taught chef who paid his dues in numerous restaurant kitchens before becoming an executive chef who garnered national attention. He has two James Beard Foundation nominations for Best Chef in the Southeast, was an Iron Chef America Cuisine competitor, and was named one of “Four New Chefs to Watch” by Esquire magazine. He is the owner/chef of Richards' Southern Fried at Krog Street Market in Atlanta, Georgia. Black American chefs and cooks are often typecast as the experts of only one cuisine—soul food, but Todd Richards’ food is anything but stereotypical. Taste his Hot-Chicken-Style Country-Fried Lamb Steak or Blueberry-Sweet Tea-Brined Chicken Thighs as evidence. While his dishes are rooted in family and the American cuisine known as soul food, he doesn’t let his heritage restrain him. The message of Soul is that cooks can honor tradition yet be liberated to explore. Todd Richards celebrates the restorative wonders of a classic pot of Collard Greens with Ham Hocks, yet doesn’t shy away from building upon that foundational recipe with his Collard Green Ramen, a reinterpretation that incorporates far-flung flavors of cultural influences and exemplifies culinary evolution. Page after page, in more than 150 recipes and stunning photos, Todd shares his creativity and passion to highlight what soul food can be for a new generation of cooks. Whether you’re new to Southern and soul food or call the South your home, Soul will encourage you to not only step outside of the box, but to boldly walk away from it. The chapters in Soul are organized by featured ingredients: Collards, Onions, Berries, Lamb, Seafood, Corn, Tomatoes, Melons, Stone Fruit, Eggs and Poultry, Pork and Beef, Beans and Rice, and Roots. Each one begins with a traditional recipe and progresses alongside Richards’ exploration of flavor combinations and techniques.

Then Philadelphia has a visitor coming soon Wildfire Radio's Small Bites Live with Tracey Medeiros. Tracey Medeiros is the author of “The Vermont Non-GMO Cookbook: 125 Organic and Farm-to-Fork Recipes from the Green Mountain State” from Skyhorse Publishing, Inc., Inc. and it is a 2018 Readable Feast Cookbook Awards Finalist.

We are thrilled to welcome our next guests Corey and Sara Meyer of Little Bird will be on the show as well. Little Bird Kitchen makes candied jalapeno chocolates, syrup and powder. Everything is hot and sweet, with the heat coming at the end. Each product is handcrafted and uses high-quality ingredients such as local, fresh jalapenos, premium Belgian Chocolates and non-GMO cane sugar. Sara Meyer, a former TV sound technician, needed to balance out taking care of the twins and a demanding job so she started a food blog and began testing recipes. After figuring out how to make husband and co-founder Corey Meyer’s favorite- chocolate covered orange peels- she began candying everything in the kitchen, including leftover jalapeños, even after Corey said, “you’re nuts.” After bringing them to work and having co-workers request to purchase them, Sara headed home and said, “I think we have a business.” Candied jalapeños are front and center in each recipe. Each product is handcrafted and uses high-quality ingredients such as local, fresh jalapeños, premium Belgian chocolate and non-GMO cane sugar. All Little Bird Kitchen products are kosher certified (dairy and pareve) and never use any preservatives. “We’ve noticed consumers are going out of their comfort zones and starting to explore new flavor profiles. One of the categories they turn to is spicy and Little Bird Kitchen is at the forefront of this trend. Whether it’s munching on our Fire Bites or utilizing the Fire Syrup as a marinade, we give users the option to control how much heat they get in their snack or meal,” said Sara and Corey Meyer, co-founders of Little Bird Kitchen. “Although we stumbled upon candied jalapeños, we stuck with it because it allows other flavor profiles to come through before the heat comes at the end.” Little Bird Kitchen’s candied jalapeños bring an elevation in flavor to whatever you are eating.

Finally we have Revital Shiri-Horowitz author of “It's Just Your Imagination: Growing Up with a Narcissistic Mother - Insights of a Personal Journey” from Horowitz Publishing.

LIVE this Sunday, June 24rd at 635pm Small Bites on Wildfire Radio is going VEGAN. Small Bites Radio’s resident Vegan Chef Christina Martin of Cooking To Nourish will be in studio for some fun and food talk hosting the show since Derek is away on vacation.

We all know eating Vegan is good for your health, but did you know that it can look good on your body as well. To talk more about how, we are thrilled to welcome Michelle Schwegmann the Co-Founder of The Herbivore Clothing Company. Michelle Schwegmann and Josh Hooten founded The Herbivore Clothing Company in 2002 with hopes of spreading a positive message about animal rights and environmentalism. They have travelled to events all over the country tabling, speaking, and giving cooking demos to promote kinder and more sustainable lifestyles. At home in Portland their store in southeast is a hub for vegans, and the vegan-curious as well as travelers from all over the planet visiting the world's only vegan mini-mall. They use Herbivore as a way to help fundraise and promote countless organizations by donating their products, time, and design work. In 2015 they wrote Eat Like You Give A Damn, a cookbook and vegan how-to guide to help those just starting out navigate their new cruelty-free life. They have 2 rescued dogs and one vegan-since-birth daughter, Ruby.

So how do you make Vegan food tasty so darn tasty? We will also be joined by Chef AJ of EatUnprocessed.com and host of TV show Healthy Living with Chef AJ on FoodyTV to chat about this. Chef AJ has been devoted to a plant-exclusive diet for over 40 years.

A chef, culinary instructor and professional speaker, she is author of the popular book Unprocessed: How to Achieve Vibrant Health and Your Ideal Weight, which chronicles her journey from an obese junk-food vegan faced with a diagnosis of pre-cancerous polyps, to learning how to create foods that nourish and heal the body.  Her latest bestselling book The Secrets to Ultimate Weight Loss: A Revolutionary Approach to Conquer Cravings, Overcome Food Addiction and Lose Weight Without Going Hungry has received glowing endorsement by many luminaries in the plant based movement. Based in Los Angeles, Chef AJ teaches a monthly sold-out seminar featuring cooking instruction, nutritional science and song parodies, all delivered with comedic panache. Never content to leave her audience with mere “just do it” advice, she teaches how to create meals to transform their health, how to deal with cravings and food addiction and addresses the emotional side of eating. She is the creator of the Ultimate Weight Loss Program, which has helped hundreds of people achieve the health and the body that they deserve. Chef AJ was the Executive Pastry Chef at Santé Restaurant in Los Angeles where she was famous for her sugar, oil, salt and gluten free desserts which use the fruit, the whole fruit and nothing but the whole fruit. Chef AJ is also creator of Healthy Taste of LA and the YouTube cooking show The Chef and the Dietitian,.

LIVE this Sunday, June 3rd at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio is an ALL-STAR lineup. How do we know this??? Because as Nike said; BO KNOWS!!! That’s right; we are thrilled to welcome Bo Jackson. Bo is the first athlete in history to be named an All-Star in both MLB with the Kansas City Royals and NFL with the The Oakland Raiders and named ESPN’s Greatest Athlete of All Time. Bo will be joining us to talk about his amazing food line Bo Jackson's 34 Signature Foods. Over the years, Bo acquired a passion for preparing great tasting food in the kitchen and he wants everyone who enjoys cooking as much as he does to experience the quality of Bo Jackson Signature Foods. Small Bites was also honored to team up with Aversa PR & Events and Culinary Fight Club CEO Jiwon McCartney to present Philadelphia’s first CFC Mushroom Council Blended Burger Challenge using his Bo’s Burgers Patty Mix on May 3rd at Uptown Beer Garden MC'd by Christian Collins that benefited Fight2Feed with amazing talent like Chef Christine Hazel, Chef Enrico Botto, Chef Kwame Dennis and more judged by Doug Keiles, Lisa Keys and others. It was an intense and extremely close competition with Chef Brent Berry and Hiram Quintana coming out victorious with a chance to compete at the World Food Championships now. We can’t wait to talk to Bo and all about his Bo Jackson's 34 Signature Foods 🙂

Then to keep the ALL-STAR lineup continuing we are pleased to welcome Fogo de Chão. As Limp Bizkit and Snoop Dogg sang, Fogo de Chão is all about the red-light\green light. You ready to roll? The story of Fogo de Chão began in the mountainous countryside of Rio Grande do Sul in Southern Brazil. It is the lessons their founding brothers learned on their family farms that gave them the ambition to share their rich culinary heritage with the rest of the world. As a leading Brazilian steakhouse, or churrascaria, specializing in the centuries-old Southern Brazilian cooking technique of churrasco – the art of roasting high-quality cuts of meats over open flame, all of which are carved tableside by Brazilian-trained gaucho chefs. Fogo’s distinctive and authentic Brazilian dining experience begins with the seasonal Market Table and Feijoada Bar, which includes seasonal salads, soup, fresh vegetables, imported charcuterie and more. The restaurant features a variety of simply seasoned meats that are fire-roasted by gaucho chefs, plus seafood, desserts, signature cocktails and an award-winning wine list. Well now internationally-renowned steakhouse Fogo de Chão is inviting guests to experience its newest seasonal offerings created just for summer. Standout items at the Market Table, which is available during Weekday Lunch for $15, include refreshing salads such as Watermelon Feta and Heirloom Tomato & Mozzarella, plus a nutrient-dense Chickpea salad. Summer also brings the return of the Watermelon Fresca mocktail. The $15 Weekday Lunch includes the seasonal Market Table & Feijoada Bar plus family-style service of Brazilian side dishes. Guests may choose to add a single selection of fire-roasted meat for under $25, or indulge in the Full Churrasco Experience. What a treat!!

We’re still batting a thousand with another ALL-STAR. This time we welcome Chef Todd Toven to talk about Blackstone Products who is THE expert in outdoor griddles. Time to add outdoor griddling for delicious cooking that goes beyond the “same old, same old.” Anything that can be cooked on a typical grill can be cooked on a griddle --- along with thousands of other foods. By combining the latest technology with innovation, Blackstone griddles take families from breakfast to lunch to dinner with desserts and snacks in between. Foods that could never be cooked on a traditional grill can now be cooked outdoors using Blackstone Products. Think about cooking outdoors eggs, pancakes, bacon, stir fry, cheesesteaks, even delicate fish. Griddling is easy to learn and, even more importantly, easy to clean. The transportable Blackstone griddles are perfect for tailgating, camping, parties with friends and even those with limited outdoor space. Chef Todd Toven is an expert in outdoor cooking as Chef Todd after graduating from college in 1994 worked as a line chef and cook for a few different restaurants. This is where his creativity in the kitchen started to be developed. He eventually combined his cooking skills with his love for the outdoors. He started self-filming his high country hunts in 2008 and posting them on YouTube. He later started filming videos on wild game cooking, camp cooking, camping, and other outdoor-related topics. His videos have now received MILLIONS of views from outdoor enthusiasts around the world! Check out Chef Todd’s YouTube channel at

Finally we have the ALL-STAR sugar buster. We can’t wait to would founder and CEO Björn Öste of Good Idea Drinks. Good Idea Inc. is the US subsidiary of Swedish food & biotech company Aventure AB. Good Idea – the Swedish Sugar Buster is available in the company webshop (www.goodideadrinks.com), on Amazon and at various retailers across the US. Currently the company is working with KeHE and major nationwide distributors. In addition, to traditional retailers and grocery chains Good Idea is working closely with corporate wellness centers, nutritionists and other leading health care professionals to make the Swedish Sugar Buster available in retail and food service. Good Idea –the Swedish Sugar Buster is designed and scientifically proven to help a healthy person handle the sugar spike following a carb-rich meal. Now paving the way in the supplement category and earning recognition in Prevention Magazine. Many ordinary meals such as burgers, pizzas, fries, white bread and even sushi contain fast carbs that make the blood sugar spike and then drop again like a stone. Most people recognize this as the slump that can occur after a meal. In the long run, these recurring spikes and lows put a strain on the metabolism. Good Idea contains an all-natural blend of five amino acids and chromium in flavored sparkling water, clinically proven to help the body handle the sugar spike following a meal. With Good Idea they are targeting to disrupt the soda industry with their Swedish Sugar Buster. They aim at providing great tasting and sustainable alternatives to sugary beverages that are not only sugar free, but that also busts your blood sugar spikes for a balanced blood sugar level following a meal. Sounds great to us!

LIVE this Sunday, May 20th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio is a great lineup. We are thrilled to welcome Chef/Partners Scott Schroeder and Pat O'Malley of Hungry Pigeon in studio. The restaurant is the dream project of Scott and Pat. Best known for serving comfort food in an all-day cafe/restaurant environment, Hungry Pigeon is beloved by Philadelphians and visitors alike. They met as line cooks 13 years ago at ¡Pasion! Restaurant and they haven’t matured a bit despite their combined thirty-five plus years in the restaurant industry. They also have friendship, resourcefulness, and, fortunately, complimentary skills. The two of them plan the Hungry Pigeon’s menus daily. Their girlfriends designed the space, but O’Malley and Schroeder take credit for it every time. The team was also on the James Beard Foundation Semifinalist list this year: Chef/Partner Pat O'Malley up for Outstanding Pastry Chef nationwide. Can’t wait to talk to them!

Our next guest is Gregory Conocchioli the owner of Gregory BenjaminArtisan Preserves and Marmalades. Greg started making preserves with neighbors when he was eight years old. His passion for artisan home made products and home style presentation took him from this simple beginning to the opening of his own catering business in Philadelphia, PA in 1984. Preserves led to chutneys and pickled products and also to baked confections, and then to off-premise catering which led to his wholesale bakery, Made in Buck’s County. Philadelphia Magazine named Gregory’s Chocolate Chip Cookie the Best of Philly. He was again named by Philadelphia Magazine, the Best of Philly in August 2013, for his preserves. In November 2013, he was named Best Artisanal Spread by Cooking Light magazine. In 2015 his Country Christmas Marmalade received the prestigious Artisan Marmalade Gold Award at the Dalemain Mansion & Historic Gardens, Cumbria Travel, England. Once again in 2016 he received the Artisan Marmalade Silver Award for his MacGregory Benjamins Orange Marmalade, a Bronze Award for Scented Lemon Rhubarb Marmalade, and a special commendation for his Sealed with a Kiss Chocolate Orange Raspberry Marmalade. His gourmet food stores in Frenchtown, New Jerseyand New Hope PA were known for his signature gift baskets and gift boxes. For many years these stores were the only places in America where you could buy his amazing products. Now you can buy them on-line and we’ll ship them directly from his kitchen to your home or gift recipient. They all sound delicious!

With warmer weather finally upon us on the East Coast, it’s that time again to PLAY BALL! We are happy to welcome General Manager Justin Ferrarella of the Sussex County Miners, a professional baseball team in the independent Can-Am League. Fans can enjoy exciting baseball, promotional nights, and great daily specials, including their spectacular fireworks shows. They have a unique set-up in rural and picturesque Sussex County, New Jersey where you can check out a fun dinner-and-a-show experience at Skylands Stadium, a minor league baseball park in Augusta, NJ with an on-site restaurant run by Krave Cafe + Caterer. The restaurant WheelHouse Craft Kitchen + Bar, works with many local farms, breweries and distilleries in Northwest NJ to create fresh menu items that are always changing to reflect the changing season and events. They also provide cocktails and refreshments inside the events including food truck festivals, beer festivals, comedy nights, boat shows, light shows, and holiday extravaganzas, as well as private and corporate functions. Sounds like a match made in heaven!

To top it all off we also have joining us Nathan Marshall. He is a passionate and dedicated wine enthusiast who loves to have fun! He has worked in the industry creating tasting notes for wineries/agencies, running digital marketing campaigns promoting wine and beer, and working as a wine expert for a chain of wine and spirits retailers. He started off several years ago as someone who was at best, mildly interested in wine. I remembered hearing people discuss different types of wine and how something like where the grapes were grown can even impact the end result. To someone who didn’t really grow up with wine, this was a very strange idea to him. Over the course of the next several years, a mild interest flourished into a full on passion. He began attending regular tastings, subscribing to different magazines, interacting with people online, and basically soaking up any and all information he could get my hands on related to wine. His website is http://nathantm.com and his YouTube is http://www.youtube.com/jalapenonate

Small Bites Radio’s resident Vegan Food Chef Christina Martin of Cooking To Nourish will also be back in studio for some fun and food talk with us and our guests.

LIVE this Sunday, May 6th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio with Cinco de Mayo! on most Americans minds this weekend, we are happy to welcome Chef Eddie Hernandez who was born in Monterrey, Mexico and is the executive chef of Taqueria del Sol. He and his business partner, Mike Klank , were nominated for a 2017 James Beard Foundation Outstanding Restaurateur Award. His recipes have appeared in Bon Appétit Magazine, Food & Wine, Southern Living, and Garden & Gun Magazine. He joins us to talk about his new cookbook “Turnip Greens & Tortillas: A Mexican Chef Spices Up the Southern Kitchen” from Rux Martin and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt written with Susan Puckett. USA TODAY called Taqueria del Sol “a runaway success.” Bon Appétit wrote: “Move over, Chipotle!” The fast-casual food of Eddie Hernandez, the James Beard-nominated chef/co-owner of the restaurant, lands on the commonalities of Southern and Mexican food, with dishes like Memphis barbecue pork tacos, chicken pot pie served in a “bowl” of a puffed tortilla, turnip greens in “pot likker” spiked with chiles, or the “Eddie Palmer,” sweet tea with a jab of tequila. Eddie never hesitates to break with purists to make food taste better, adding sugar to creamy grits to balance the jalapeños, or substituting tomatillos in fried green tomatoes for a more delicate texture. Throughout, “Eddie’s Way” sidebars show how to make each dish even more special. What a treat!

Then coming on the show will be Ray Sheehan the Event Organizer of the 2nd Annual Philadelphia All Star Craft Beer & Wine Festival at Citizens Bank Park. After a sell-out crowd last year, thousands of beer enthusiasts and wine lovers will return to Citizens Bank Park on May 19, 2018 for the The Philly All-Star Craft Beer, Wine, and Cocktail Festival. Guests will be treated like ballpark royalty with exclusive giveaways, activities, and amazing craft beer and wine samples from around the world. This year, the festival area has expanded by 50% to provide attendees with more space to walk around, hang out with their friends, and have fun! With over 100 craft beer and wine vendors, food vendors, and live musical entertainment, guests are guaranteed the experience of a lifetime. Ticket holders will also receive free parking, a voucher for two (2) tickets to a Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park, and get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get their picture taken in the Philadelphia Phillies dugout after walking the bases and warning track! This year, “The Yard” will also be open for attendees to take swings at the Phillies new whiffle ball park, and enjoy a variety of games throughout the entire concourse, such as giant bocci, fowling, cornhole, and even shoot some hot dogs from the Hatfield hot dog launcher. Four DJ’s, and two Acoustic Duo’s will also amp up the crowd, and keep the party going. Additionally, the Phillies vs. Cardinals will be airing LIVE on the giant 1,500” screen and dozens of screens throughout the ballpark to provide a true all star experience. The event runs from 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm and VIP ticket holders will have access to the Hall of Fame Club/VIP Area with one-hour early entry at 2:00 p.m., and additional select beer & wine samples. The All-Star Craft Beer and Wine will benefit the Phila FOP Lodge 5 and Michael Barkann's The Barkann Family Healing Hearts Foundation uniting a sense of community in the Philadelphia region. The Foundation provides financial assistance to families who are in need, due to recent adversity or tragedy and are immensely grateful to be a part of the festival. Planning to take the festival across the nation, Dennis Gaudenzi, owner of Upcoming Events.com is thrilled to host the annual festival in the City of Brotherly Love for its second year. He says “We are so excited to have this Festival at one of the best Ballparks in the Majors – the Home of the Phillies! It is certain to be a “can’t miss” event with entertainment and great craft beer and wine, both local and from around the world!” It’s an event that should not be missed!

Her long-time group, recording artists the scoldees, released two critically acclaimed CDs of original music that received nationwide airplay: MY PATHETIC LIFE and NIGHTCAP WORLD (OHR Records ©2000 and 2003).

In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month (April), we are thrilled to welcome Chef Katie Lee, the ultimate comfort food expert and co-host of the Emmy nominated Food Network’s The Kitchen and the Cooking Channel’s Beach Bites with Katie Lee. She shares ways to elevate your comfort food experience with delicious grilled cheese sandwich mashups that are easy to make at home. Lee is a member of the Feeding America Entertainment Council, an ambassador for 96 Elephants, on the board of the Food Bank of New York, works closely with the Wildlife Conservation Society, and she has also volunteered for Les Dames d'Escoffier Int'l (LDEI), an organization that educates and mentors women in the culinary profession. What an honor!

Then we are so happy to welcome Siri Daly of food blog Siriously Deliciousto talk about her new cookbook "Siriously Delicious: 100 Nutritious (and Not So Nutritious) Simple Recipes for the Real Home Cook" from Oxmoor House Books. Like many of us trying to feed our families, Siri Daly is a very busy cook. As a mother of three under the age of 10, Today Show food contributor, and wife of a bicoastal traveling man, Carson Daly ("The Voice" host and TODAY show co-host), Siri often doesn’t know which end is up. Siri is not a serious cook, but she is serious about her food—and what she serves her family, friends and loved ones. Siriously Delicious is organized by how a busy mom gets through her day—breakfast, lunch, happy hour (her favorite!), dinner with sides, and dessert. Siri’s recipes are created with three goals in mind: to create food that is delicious and satisfying for both kids and adults, to prepare dishes packed with traditionally comforting flavors and ingredients (think cheese, avocado, chocolate!), and to make each recipe approachable for even a novice cook—no trips to specialty food stores are required. Whether you’re looking for easy-to-cook recipes your kids will devour, such as mouth-watering Bacon Pizzadillas, or you’re dying to relax with a Spicy Grapefruit Cocktail when the days feel too long, this cookbook has a recipe for every occasion. Siri also includes extra tips to make your time in the kitchen easier: Siriously Simple offers a hack or time-saving tip, Siriously Sinful details how to make something even more indulgent, Siriously Nutritious explains how to make something healthier, and Siriously Mini advises how to satisfy the kiddos. Filled with Siri’s often hilarious anecdotes, Siriously Delicious will not only feed your family’s bellies but hopefully deliver a belly laugh along the way. We can’t wait!

Keeping the fun going, joining us as well is Justin Chapple the Culinary Director of Food & Wine and host of Food & Wine’s video series Mad Genius Tips to talk about his new book “Just Cook It!: 145 Built-to-Be-Easy Recipes That Are Totally Delicious” from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Time Inc. Books. Before joining FOOD & WINE, he graduated from the The French Culinary Institute and worked under Chef Alain Allegretti in New York City, but Justin Chapple knows how people really cook at home. He grew up with a large family, first learning kitchen tricks from his grandmother who made do with whatever they had, and she made the food delicious. In his job as the Culinary Director of the test kitchen, he's often asked to take recipes from superstar chefs (think David Chang and Thomas Keller) and simplify them for home cooks. Now he is putting all of his expertise to good use in Just Cook It!, a collection of 125 mouthwatering recipes like Avocado Pizza with Dukka and Stovetop Mac-n-Cheese with Bacon Breadcrumbs, with Justin's signature time-saving tips and hacks throughout. AMESOME!!!

All this cooking has us needing a drink. Tim Herlihy, the United Staed Ambassador for Tullamore Dew will be on to talk about their latest innovative release: Tullamore D.E.W. Caribbean Rum Cask Finish. Available now in the U.S. market, the new variant consists of the brand’s signature Irish whiskey, Tullamore D.E.W. Original, finished in barrels previously used to age Demerara rum. Tullamore D.E.W. Caribbean Rum Cask Finish is inspired by the brand’s new global vision, “Beauty of Blend,” which champions the ways in which blends of all kinds impact our whiskey and our world for the better. In the 16th and 17th centuries, more than 50,000 Irish immigrants settled in the West Indies where a tradition of Irish whiskey distilling blended with local rum production and expanded the business globally. Reflecting this unique history, the product’s packaging is inspired by antique Caribbean trade maps, passport stamps and travel journals. Tullamore D.E.W. Caribbean Rum Cask Finish is a permanent addition to the Tullamore D.E.W. collection and joins an impressive innovation line-up, including the Tullamore D.E.W. Original, 12 Year Old Special Reserve, 15 Year Old Trilogy and 14 and 18 Year Old Single Malts as well as the seasonal Tullamore D.E.W. Cider Cask. What a treat!

Let’s top all of this food and drink greatness with a treat. This treat will be a little different as a robot will serve it to us. Joining us to talk about this technology advancement is Reis and Irvy's’s Chaiman Nick Yates. Reis & Irvy’s a subsidiary franchise concept of Generation NEXT Franchise Brands, Inc. (OTCB: VEND) announced that the world’s first frozen yogurt robots will arrive at select grocery retailers in 16 US states this spring. The Reis & Irvy’s Frozen Yogurt Robots provide a fun and delicious experience to the shopper. Savvy grocers recognize the value of front-of-store services like Reis & Irvy’s frozen yogurt robots, offering shoppers a unique service and product. To check this concept out for yourself; it can be seen in Pennsylvania at The The Fresh Grocer Reis & Irvy's- Philly. We hope they just serve frozen yogurt and a Blade Runner 2049 will not be needed to keep them under control 😉

Then to give us a peek of a blogger life we are happy to have in studio Chetna Macwan the founder of Spice Culture Blog, an Indian Cooking instructor, and award winning chef for her Butter Chicken where she recently won 2nd place at a cooking challenge at Rowan University. She believes in lots of fresh ingredients, lots of traditional Indian flavors/spices, but easier steps to cook. Her dream is to have a successful cooking show on a TV Network to allow audiences to see that Indian food is very flavorful and accessible. The program would show people that Indian food it is not as intimidating as it seems when steps are simplified, can be done without sacrificing flavor, and share how wonderful Indian food really is. Chetna is proud of her culture and the dishes offered, and we couldn’t be happier that she is joining us.

LIVE this Sunday, March 25th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio returns with another stellar lineup. Some might even say a ROCKING lineup. We welcome Paul Green A.K.A the Godfather of Rock School Education and founder of School of Rock which was portrayed in the Hollywood movie “School of Rock” played by Jack Black. Paul returns home to Philadelphia to launch the PGRA Philly Paul Green Rock Academy. Twenty years since he opened a modest music school in Philly based on his ardent belief that kids would rather learn by rocking on stage. Well Paul Green has returned home to teach performance-based music again in the city where he founded the original School of Rock en route to revolutionizing music education across the nation. But this time, the Godfather of Rock School Education is starting small - and keeping it that way – to create The Greatest Music School in the Country. Unlike the School of Rock model, Green’s new school is an audition-only “Master’s Program in Rock Music” for kids “with big dreams and the chops to back them up.” In other words, serious musicians who need to already have “the gift of rock” before they even meet the man who gave it to an entire generation. The Paul Green Rock Academy is located 6183 Ridge Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19128. Serious musicians, aged 10-18, who are interested in auditioning should write to info@paulgreenrock.com. Complete information at www.paulgreenrock.com.

Another well-known name around Philadelphia was Ben Franklin. We are happy to welcome Rae Katherine Eighmey the author of “Stirring the Pot with Benjamin Franklin: A Founding Father's Culinary Adventures” from Smithsonian Books. Stirring the Pot with Benjamin Franklin is a remarkable culinary biography that explores Benjamin Franklin’s life through the foods he favored and served. It includes sixty-two kitchen-tested recipes based on period sources from colonial Boston and Philadelphia, England, and France, all deliciously adapted for the modern kitchen. Stirring the Pot with Benjamin Franklin conveys all of Franklin’s culinary adventures, demonstrating that Franklin’s love of food shaped not only his life but also the character of the young nation he helped build. Perfect for inquisitive cooks and history lovers alike, this book will inspire you to never think of Franklin in quite the same way again. Rae Katherine Eighmey is an award-winning author, food historian, and cook. She is the author of numerous books, including Abraham Lincoln in the Kitchen, Soda Shop Salvation, and Food Will Win the War.

Then we welcome Jenn Segal who is the founder of Once Upon A Chef, a popular blog showcasing easy, family-friendly recipes from a chef's point of view. Her recipes have been featured on numerous websites, magazines, and television programs, including The HuffPost ABC 7 News - WJLA's Good Morning Washington, and PARADE Magazine.com.

Jenn cooks dinner for her family every night, and in her book, she shares 100 recipes that will up your kitchen game while surprising you with their ease. With the authority of a professional chef and the practicality of a busy working mom, Jenn teaches you to improve your cooking one recipe at a time, with helpful tips on topics such as how to season correctly with salt, how to balance flavors, and how to make the most of leftovers. This is the book you'll turn to again and again, and with Jenn by your side in the kitchen, every meal will taste like the best night out!

To have all of our new listeners get a taste of Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com, LIVE this Sunday, March 18th at 635pm on WildfireRadio.com we have another great show lineup for everyone. We welcome Hsiao-Ching Chou an award-winning food journalist, a cooking instructor, and communications consultant. She is a member of the James Beard Foundation cookbook committee and Les Dames d'Escoffier Int'l (LDEI). Chou has been a guest on local and national shows, including Public Radio's The Splendid Table, the PBS documentary The Meaning of Food, and the Travel Channel's Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. In her spare time, she teaches popular everyday Chinese home cooking classes at the Hot Stove Society. She also recently released a new book called “Chinese Soul Food” from Sasquatch Books. Chinese food is more popular than any other cuisine and yet it often intimidates North American home cooks. Chinese Soul Food draws cooks into the kitchen with recipes that include sizzling potstickers, stir-fries that are unbelievably easy to make, saucy braises, and soups that bring comfort with a sip. These are dishes that feed the belly and speak the universal language of "mmm!" You'll find approachable recipes and plenty of tips for favorite home-style Chinese dishes, such as red-braised pork belly, dry-fried green beans, braised-beef noodle soup, green onion pancakes, garlic eggplant, and the author's famous potstickers, which consistently sell out her cooking classes in Seattle. You will also find helpful tips and techniques, such as caring for and using a wok and how to cook rice properly, as well as a basic Chinese pantry list that also includes acceptable substitutions, making it even simpler for the busiest among us to cook their favorite Chinese dishes at home. Recipes are streamlined to minimize the fear factor of unfamiliar ingredients and techniques, and home cooks are gently guided toward becoming comfortable cooking satisfying Chinese meals. Any kitchen can be a Chinese kitchen!

Still thinking of books? Well we also having joining us Lisa Howard-Fuscowho is always fascinated by people’s stories and having a talent for weaving engaging words, Lisa Howard-Fusco has over two decades of media, writing, marketing, and networking experience, ten years of which were concentrated on the food/beverage and locavore world, both as a features journalist for publications such as Edible Jersey, USA TODAY USA TODAY Eats, and New Jersey Monthly Magazine, and as co-owner and writer (with her husband, John Howard-Fusco) of the site Eating In South Jersey. She has also been a transformative coach and meditation instructor. Over two years ago, she decided to combine all of her experience and skills into showing heart-centered companies and entrepreneurs how to create their own effective marketplace voice that reflects their true purpose and values. The result was Creative Living Writing and Consulting, where she serves as a communications consultant and coach, public speaker, and writer. Lisa enjoys seeking out the real story behind a business, discovering what naturally sets them apart, and communicating it effectively so they can find authentic success.

Then we welcome Jessica Nartey the General Manager of Big Red Pedal Tours Philadelphia. What is Big Red Pedal Tours and what’s a pedicycle?!? The Big Red Pedicycle is a 15-guest bike. This open-air "tour bus" has 12 seats lining both sides for pedalers and a back bench for three riders to sit on. Riders work together to casually pedal the Big Red Pedicycle around Philly and stop at historic sites during the day and popular pubs at night. It is the perfect vehicle for historic tours, team-building events, school trips, pub crawls, bachelor/bachelorette parties, company outings, birthday parties, charity events and more!

All this pedaling has us wanting to get in shape even more. To help us out with that, all the way from Australia, we are happy to have join us, huge YouTube stars with close to a half-million views Amy-Kate & JD of JAKD FITNESS. Their aim is to break the Vegan stereotype. They are a motivated married Vegan couple who are passionate about Holistic Health and Veganism.

Then we welcome Neha Khullar the author of “Palate Passport”. Neha Khullar is a foodie, coffee addict, sparkly shoe-wearer, and enthusiastic dinner party host. Prior to becoming a cookbook author, Neha Khullarworked on the corporate side of New York City. Fueled by her passion for food and cooking, she set out on a journey to explore culinary traditions around the world. After breaking bread in dozens of places, she learned that food brings people together and creates community regardless of religion, political views, or language; what tastes good can be shared with others. She has spent time with master chefs, street stall cooks, grandmothers, and food lovers all around the world. They have taught her about their favorite local foods and shared the history and stories behind them. Palate Passport is her personal culinary masterpiece created to share this journey with others. She intends to show readers that cooking is fun, it doesn’t have to be intimidating, and if made with love, even an imperfect dish will taste beautiful! Neha has spent three years creating this book in order to thoughtfully coordinate all of its components. The cover was inspired by many people and separate events. After following a particular artist for years, she asked him to create the cover art, loving his style of coloring outside of the lines–a style reminiscent of her story for creating this cookbook. The dominant colors of the cover were inspired by a garden that Neha visited in Marrakech, Morocco. And the name was inspired by a fellow traveler who crossed paths with Neha while also filling her passport with experiences. Every component of this book has a story like the one behind the cover art. Neha is the founder of FoodMoodz, LLC which is an online platform for foodies to share articles on the best eats, chef profiles, recipes, and food trends. Neha is also the founder of Global Foodie Citizen which is a community of foodies located all around the world! The vision for GFC is to offer an invite-only group of foodies who can connect to meet at exclusive restaurants and food experiences around the world.

#FlyEaglesFly – The Philadelphia Eagles are Minnesota Super Bowl 2018Champions! Could this Sunday be just as great with the return of Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire RadioFebruary 11th at 635pm? Not a chance in hell, but hey, what else better do you have to do now that the Eagles aren’t playing so why not tune in and have some fun with us 😂🤣😂🤣

Any Seinfeld fan will instantaneously recognized our guest this week. The Original SoupMan has gone from “No Soup for You” and now they shout “Soupman -- Soup For All” as they recently launched a new E-commerce site. We will be joined by Joseph Hagan the President and one of the owners of The Original Soupman to talk about how fans can now purchase 6-packs of the small batch, super fresh soups that are still made with the handcrafted excellence that has made these soups legendary with prices ranging from $19.99 to $24.96 all available at www.theorginalsoupman.comand delivered right to your front door. The delicious flavors include: Shrimp Bisque, filled with plump real shrimp and Orzo pasta; Lobster Bisque, brimming with succulent fresh lobster and veggie; Gluten-Free Lentil, which offers a hearty, fiber-rich meal; Chicken Gumbo, the authentic soulful southern delight; Jambalaya, made with a feisty kick and Crab and Corn Chowder, a seaside inspired fan favorite. The Original SoupMan sells its complete line of delicious soups in eco-friendly shelf stable Tetra-Pak cartons at the best supermarkets, grocery, mass market and convenience stores. The Original Soupman chooses to package in Tetra-Paks because it makes it possible to have the high quality, best tasting soups in a shelf stable package and contains No BPA compared to canning. The company also supplies soup to foodservice operations including Restaurants, Colleges, Franchises and more. In 1984, The Original Soupman opened its doors at 55th Street & 8th Avenue in Manhattan and quickly became a worldwide destination. Rated #1 by Zagat and praised by the New York Times as "Art, not Soup," it set the standard for innovation and excellence long before the famous “Seinfeld” episode made it a cultural icon.

Thankfully the Eagles won; otherwise Philly may have turned towards the apocalypse. Wonder what that would look like? Well you can get a glimpse of what the post apocalypse city would have been like by going to Mad Rex– a meeting place, dining haven, and watering hole for revelers from “all walks of life.” -where SURVIVORS indulge in food + drink at an urban outpost. It’s an environment where patrons are encouraged to create their own “interactive rites” through virtual reality. Where despite the fallout there’s still a sense of food, culture, community and ART that still thrives. Visit a sanctuary where urbanites are encouraged to create & share their own experiences. Where the food is locally sourced, the cocktails surprise you, and you feel like this is the ultimate stop in the post apocalypse. Who ever thought the apocalypse would taste so great. They also have a VREX Lounge. Experience the virtual reality lounge (VREX) where patrons can escape the doldrums of normal life and immerse themselves in augmented reality. You can also reserve the more private Virtual Reality Chamber that comes equipped with a lounge throne, private locker, table service, and drinks served in an IV bag for easy handling. Mad Rex is the first restaurant to fully infuse VR technology into their concept in Philadelphia. A true experience to live for….Be a survivor!

We also welcome Brian Kane and Vito Lasprugato the owners and founders of Warrior Gyms. Brian Kane is an American Ninja Warrior Nation veteran and featured on the hit NBC television show during Season 7 and they also own the successful Evolution Fitness Now and Vito’s Organic Stuff.

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!

Joining us in studio as well will be Vernon Rochester the owner of Rochester's Barbecue & Grill in Borough of Lawnside, New Jersey. They are a BYOB and Wine Bar featuring wines from Sharrott Winery expertly paired with each meal, Wednesday Nights - All You Can Eat BBQ, and also locals love their Saturday Night Jazz sessions from 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm featuring Michael J Corman, an amazing Keyboardist/Vocalist. They focus on soul food, barbecue, and southern cooking, but with locally sourced products as much as possible with a focus on dietary diversity. They do traditionally prepared items on the menu such as their amazing Ollie’s Triple beans, made with ground beef, sausage and bacon and simmered with “secret spices” all the way to a variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes to choose from. You heard right, they also focus on vegetarian and vegan dishes. They were also recently highlighted in the Courier Post by Lisa Howard-Fusco. You can read the article here:

http://www.courierpostonline.com/…/lawnside-roch…/813594001/

LIVE this Sunday, January 7th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio is back and is ready for a great 2018. We start things off by welcoming author Karen Page. Karen is a two-time James Beard Foundation Award winner, previous cookbooks “Culinary Artistry” was called one of the best cookbooks of all time by Food & Wine and “The Flavor Bible” was called one of the 10 best cookbooks in the world of the past century by Forbes. Well her latest endeavor with photographer Andrew Dornenburg “Kitchen Creativity: Unlocking Culinary Genius with Wisdom, Inspiration, and Ideas from the World's Most Creative Chefs” (Little, Brown and Company) shows great cooking is as much about intuition and imagination as it is about flavor and technique. Kitchen Creativity distills brilliant insights into these creative processes from more than 100 top restaurant kitchens, including the Bazaar, Blue Hill, Daniel, Dirt Candy, Eleven Madison Park and the NoMad, Gramercy Tavern, the Inn at Little Washington, Le Bernardin, Oleana, Rustic Canyon, Saison, Single Thread, and Topolobampo. Based on four years of extensive research and dozens of in-depth interviews, Kitchen Creativity illuminates the method (and occasional madness) of culinary invention. Part I reveals how to learn foundational skills, including how to appreciate, taste, and season classic dishes (Stage 1: Mastery), before reinventing the classics from a new perspective (Stage 2: Alchemy). Einstein's secret of genius-combinatory play-pushes chefs to develop unique creations and heighten their outer and inner senses (Stage 3: Creativity). Part II's A-to-Z entries are an invaluable culinary idea generator, with exercises to prompt new imaginings. The ultimate reference for culinary brainstorming, Kitchen Creativity will spur your creativity to new heights, both in the kitchen and beyond.

Then we are thrilled to welcome Amy Strauss the author of “Pennsylvania Scrapple: A Delectable History” (The History Press). Amy is a food and drink writer and editor in the Philadelphia area. With a knack for uncovering the beauty in all things delicious, she takes to the streets of the City of Brotherly Love and beyond to discover its stories and relay them to you on a silver platter. With a decade of publishing experience in print and online publications for outlets like Philly Beer Scene, Edible Philly, The Spirit Newspaper, The Town Dish, Main Line Today magazine, Southwest Airlines, OpenTable, BlackBook Media, Philadelphia City Paper and Drink Philly, among others, she's hungry, she's eager and she loves to have her cake (and eat it, too). Beyond food and drink journalism, Amy is experienced with building creative content for brands like Campbell's Soup Company, Victory Beer Company, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant , Garces Group, Airgas and more. She's obsessed with her Pennsylvania Dutch heritage, slices of funfetti cake and not giving up hope for the Philadelphia 76erss. There may not be hope for the 76ers, but scrapple is as great as ever and everything you want to know about it is in “Pennsylvania Scrapple: A Delectable History”. An essential food in Mid-Atlantic kitchens for hundreds of years, scrapple is the often-overlooked king of breakfast meats. Developed by German settlers of Pennsylvania, the slow food byproduct was created to avoid waste in the day’s butchering. Pork trimmings were stewed until tender, ground like sausage and blended with the originating broth, cornmeal and buckwheat flour. Crispy slabs of scrapple sustained regional ancestors through frigid winter months and hard-worked harvests. Today, companies such as Habbersett and Rapa still produce scrapple as new generations of chefs create exciting ways to eat the staple. Join author Amy Strauss as she traces the sizzling history and culture of a beloved Pennsylvania Dutch icon. Follow her ongoing culinary pursuits on Instagram at @amystrauss or online at www.amystrauss.com.

In 2018 on the Chinese New Year it will be the Year of the Dog, and the original White Dog Cafe located in a brownstone in University City will celebrates 35 years since their opening and has expanded by 85 seats having recently taken over the property adjacent to the restaurant. This is going to be a WOOFderful year! To talk about this and much more we will have on Chef Clark Gilbert Culinary Director of White Dog Café. It all started with Judy Wicks, social activist and original Founder, opened White Dog Cafe in January of 1983. Located in three connecting Victorian brownstones in University City, White Dog quickly became a local favorite known for its environmental sustainability and community engagement. The majority of their ingredients are purchased from local farms, located no more than fifty miles from our restaurants. Their seasonal menus feature only the best ingredients from farms they trust; including pasture fed animals, humanely treated livestock, and fish and seafood that is harvested through sustainable suppliers. They incorporate organic items as much as they can when available from farms using sustainable farming practices. Their wines are grown and produced from American vineyards and serve local craft beer and use artisan distilled spirits in their beverages. All of their tea, coffee, and chocolate are Certified Organic and Fair Trade. The restaurants use renewable energy, LED lighting and practice sustainable initiatives that are environmentally friendly.

It’s always great when a restaurant is environmentally friendly, but it really adds a special flair when they are kid friendly as well. Joining us to chat about great places that want you to bring the kids along will be Melissa Elders the CEO and Founder of Nibble+squeak which just recently came to Philly. Nibble+squeak is a community of food-obsessed parents and the ultimate resource for kid-friendly dining.

LIVE this Sunday, December 3rd at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio is back for our last show in 2017 and we are happier than ever to sing “Fly Eagles Fly, on the road to victory, fight Eagles fight, score a touchdown 1-2-3, hit’em low, hit’em high, and watch our Eagles fly, fly Eagles fly, on the road to victory! E A G L E S – EAGLES!!!!” Philadelphia Eagles fans are a tough crowd to please as proven by the time Eagles fans even booed Santa Claus. Yep, Santa Claus! So just imagine how difficult it must be to feed these rowdy fans. Well we have the perfect person joining us in studio. We are pleased to welcome from South Philly NFC East 1st place, yep you heard that right, 1st place Philadelphia Eagles Executive Chef James Hennessey for Lincoln Financial Field by Aramark. Not only does he keep our hometown team’s fans fed and happy, he also cooked at the 2012 Summer Olympic in Visit London. Awesome, and here’s to hoping he keeps on cooking for this team all the through to the Super Bowl.

What goes great with watching football? PIZZA of course! Also joining us in studio will be Mariano Mattei, the owner of Mattei Family Pizza When you are supporting a 1st Place team, you want to be eating the best pizza possible. Well Metro Newspaper Metro Philly Philly’s Jennifer Logue even wrote an article stating that Mattei Family Pizza may be the best pizza in Philly right now and they were also spotlighted by Alex Tewfik in Philadelphia Magazine. To top the accolades, Mariano has also appeared on the Food Network show Cooks vs. Cons. Sounds like a winning combination to us, and we can’t wait to try their pizza for ourselves.

Then it seems we are having everything move towards craft and artesian. So what will be next? We will be joined by Megan Giller a food writer, editor, and chocolate enthusiast, and her blog Chocolate Noise was a 2016 SaveurBlog Awards finalist. She offers private chocolate tasting classes, hosts “Underground Chocolate Salons” at shops across the country, and is a judge at chocolate competitions, including the International Chocolate Awards. Her work has been published in the New York Times, Slate.com, Zagat, Food & Wine, and Modern Farmer. She has recently released a new book “Bean-to-Bar Chocolate: America’s Craft Chocolate Revolution: The Origins, the Makers, and the Mind-Blowing Flavors” from Storey Publishing. The next big movement in the artisanal food world: bean-to-bar chocolate. Like craft beer and specialty coffee before it, this small-batch industry is on the brink of something big:American craft chocolate sales are $100 million annually and rising. Bean-to-Bar Chocolate, by Megan Giller, provides a lively and mouthwatering window into this growing market. In her new book, Giller demystifies the “bean-to-bar”process — how craft chocolate is made by sourcing high-quality cocoa beans, then roasting, grinding, and finessing them into finished bars. Readers will learn what to look for in a chocolate bar and who are the bean-to-bar makers to watch. Profiles of more than a dozen chocolate makers from cutting-edge businesses — including Taza Chocolate, Dandelion Chocolate, and Askinosie Chocolate — guide readers through the fascinating, delicious, and burgeoning bean-to-bar chocolate movement. Bean-to-Bar Chocolate answers questions that real chocolate lovers will have, such as, how do cocoa beans from Venezuela differ from beans from Madagascar? Or, what is dark milk chocolate and who makes the best? Giller includes delicious suggestions for readers to create their own chocolate tastings, offering advice for pairing chocolate with coffee, tea, beer, spirits, bread, cheese, and other foods. Top chefs and chocolatiers like Michael Laiskonis, Alice Medrich, and Janina O' Leary provided many of the book’s 22 recipes. From Champurrado Drinking Chocolate and Ceylon Tea Fudge Sauce to Olive Oil Sourdough Truffles, Pop Rocks Chocolate Bark, and Chocolate Sorbet, these decadent treats defy expectations of what chocolate should taste like. Sounds like a great holiday gift to get for friends and family!

Joining us again will be Chef @Ed Crochet of Rat's Restaurant at Grounds For Sculpture. Philadelphia’s renowned Starr Events oversees Rat’s Restaurant at Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ. A graduate of L’Academie de Cuisine Culinary School, Crochet worked in the kitchens of Tom Colicchio’s Crafted Hospitality before joining the Starr Restaurants team at Storico at the New-York Historical Society. Rat’s is a French-focused restaurant famous for its unique setting within the 42-acre sculpture park. Rat’s was conceptually designed to be reminiscent of Claude Monet’s beloved Giverny by sculptor The Seward Johnson Atelier. It is named after the gregarious character “Ratty,” from Kenneth Grahame’s famed children’s story, The Wind in the Willows. The restaurant patio, noted for its sweeping views and al fresco dining, overlooks a lily pond framed by weeping willows, and the “Monet bridge”. I have dined there myself and had a great meal after a wonderful visit walking around Grounds For Sculpture.

So we have great meals and chocolate covered, but what is 2018 going to bring us in food trends? Well we will have Darby Hughes the Brand Strategy Director & Trends Expert for Quench Agency (Pavone) to tell us his thoughts of what we'll see. What a show!

In studio as well will be Chef Christina Martin of Cooking To Nourish and Nourish on the Go #Vegan mobile cart to give us Vegan Recipes News and why to Eat Drink Vegan.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR - SEE YOU ALL AGAIN STARTING JANUARY 7TH, 2018 at 635PM on WILDFIRE RADIO!!!!

LIVE this Sunday, November 19th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio is back with Derek returning from VISIT FLORIDA. With Thanksgiving around the corner we are focused on friends and family. This is the time to embrace, not shun. We want to make sure everyone is welcome at the dinner table. Lets help those who can't make make it because of addiction issues. Tonight at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio welcomes Tony Luke's Tony Luke Jr to talk about #BrownAndWhite

#BrownAndWhite

Pledging his solidarity to the victims and families of heroin overdose, local entrepreneur and media personality Tony Luke Jr. has announced an initiative aimed at heightening the awareness of removing social stigmas associated with use of the toxic drug. Tony recently lost his son to a heroin overdose.

“The fact is, no one and no family is immune from this horrible epidemic that is ruining so many lives,” says Tony. “Too often, heroin users are accused of moral failings. Heroin addiction is not a moral issue. It’s no different than other addictive substances, like alcohol or cocaine. To minimize such deaths on a moral level is just cruel to the survivors, and compounds their suffering and grief.” Tony is encouraging anyone who has lost a loved one to heroin to create and wear a brown and white item (the two colors of heroin) and share it through social media, in schools, local businesses, etc., using #BrownAndWhite.

“There are many heroin awareness organizations and campaigns that are performing essential work in the realm of education and treatment,” he says. “#BrownAndWhite is intended to change the institutional perception that heroin users somehow deserve their fate.” He emphasizes that the #BrownAndWhite initiative is not designed to be a charity, but a platform to launch conversations between survivors and the general public. “I don’t want to establish a foundation or a website,” says Tony. “There will be no fundraising. I want this to be organic. I want to let others who have lost a loved one to this dreadful disease know they are not alone. No matter a person’s circumstance in life, addiction is a possibility. And there is nothing for them to be ashamed of. If I can help even one person, then #BrownAndWhite will be a success.” If anyone has been affected by a death from heroin, simply create a ribbon or a bracelet. Wear it. Share it. Talk about it. We’re in this together!

We have also whipped up a great lineup for you with all your holiday food and drink needs covered. We are happy to have on Andrew Oppenheimer of Peak Foods LLC and he is the Director of Sales and Marketing for truwhipthat is available at Whole Foods Market nationwide and many other retail locations. Peak Foods is committed to safety, quality and environmental sustainability, as well as health and taste. The latest addition to frozen whipped topping may be the best dessert decorating hack yet — and it comes in a bag (not a can). Truwhirl, from the makers of Truwhip, delivers Truwhip’s signature all-natural whipped topping in a squeezable, ready-to-use bag, with a built-in decorating tip. The launch is part of Truwhirl’s effort to #SaveDessert. The campaign aims to breathe new life into desserts of all kinds and turn ordinary into extraordinary — one simple squeeze at a time — encouraging people to stop deserting dessert. It’s a fun and more eco-friendly replacement for the old-fashioned aerosol can. Using it is easy, too. Just tear off the end of the decorator bag, push the tip to the corner, and you’re ready to decorate pies, cakes, sundaes and more. The packaging is more environmentally friendly. No nitrous oxide gas or cans. Truwhirl is easy to squeeze on desserts or even bunny ears. Truwhirl and Truwhip stand out in a whipped topping category that’s often short on all-natural choices. Truwhirl contains no high fructose corn syrup, no GMOs, no hydrogenated oils and zero grams of trans fats per serving. And unlike toppings from aerosol cans, it won’t slip or slide off your dessert.

Then we are thrilled to join us Chef Richard L. Ingraham who is Dwyane Wade & Gabrielle Union’s private chef. Chef Richard was born and raised in Miami, Florida and became a culinary enthusiast at an early age. He trained at the The Art Institute of Atlanta, and soon after began teaching culinary arts at a Miami high school. In 2003, he was offered what is now his current position as Private Chef for NBA star Dwyane Wade and his wife Gabrielle Union. The combination of his world-class training, recognitions, and passion for fine cuisine and spirits has allowed him to create a network of Private Chefs called Chef RLI, LLC, which serves a plethora of NBA, NFL, MLB, and entertainment personalities. Chef Richard has competed on The Food Network’s television show Chopped, partnered as an ambassador with Walmart, Goya Foods and the National Pork Producers Council and presented at the Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival every year since 2011. Having worked with a variety of other professional athletes, musicians, and celebrities, this responsibility of keeping them nourished to achieve peak performance while still enjoying flavorful meals blossomed into the creation and the release of his first cookbook, Eating Well to Win: Inspired Living Through Inspired Cooking (Mango Publishing).

Also cooking up some delicious food every day we have coming in studio Executive Chef Oliver Munguia of Keg & Kitchen in Westmont, New Jersey. Chef Oliver Munguia has previously worked at Cinder Copper & Lace, Green EggsCafe', REEF Restaurant/ Lounge, Parc Restaurant, Melograno, One Shot, and Uptown Beer Garden. Chef Oliver was also named by Billy Penn's Danya Henninger as one of the top 15 rising chefs in Philly. Wow what an honor! Keg & Kitchen is not only serving great meals and beverages at their brick and mortar location, but they have been popping up at Haddon Square Pop-Up Beer Garden where the Westmont Farmers Market now is as well with various themed events and parties. Keg & Kitchen is brought to you by Kevin and Janet Meeker who like to dine out—and that’s why every aspect of their Haddon Township tavern is designed with their guests in mind. Whether you’re out with your kids or out on the town, you’re always welcome at Keg & Kitchen. From the small-batch brewers whose beers fill the bar Bible to the reclaimed wood interior that lines its walls, the restaurant offers guests a pub experience that is both social and intimate. The food is a mix of hearty and refined, but always fresh, and selected to complement the complex flavors of whatever’s on tap. Daily drink specials range from wine and whiskey flights to house cocktails and canned seasonal beers. Communal tables offer a broad, inviting experience for groups of any size, friend or stranger, and a year-round, outdoor beer garden constructed with Amish timber offers a singular view of the streetscape in every season. Convenient to the Westmont PATCOSpeedline and New Jersey Routes 70, 30, and 130, Keg & Kitchen isn’t just open to everyone—it’s also closer than you think. Stop by the next time you’re in the neighborhood.

What goes with great food, family, friends, and the holidays? A great drink to toast with. Well we have the perfect person joining us in studio with Joan Verratti the CEO and President of Naoj & Mot, Inc. the parent company of South Philly based traditional lemoncellos maker of Pollyodd. Joan Verratti and her partner Tom Cavaliere founded Naoj & Mot in 2006 after realizing her hobby of making Italian-American liqueurs had the potential to become a successful business. After much trial-and-error, Verratti narrowed Pollyodd line down to ten distinct flavors – five water based and five creams. Verratti describes the process of making Pollyodd products by using an Italian phrase, “dalle mie mani al tuo cuore,” which translates into English as, “from my hands to your heart.” This is more than just a sentiment for Verratti, who makes each bottle by hand in small batches to ensure optimal quality. This Pennsylvania-based distillery creates artisan liquors; each product contains no more than five locally-sourced ingredients, including water, sugar, pure grain alcohol and various fruits or chocolates. Over the last eight years, Verratti has perfected her recipes and is working to expand her line of Liqueurs to up 18 water-based and cream-based flavors. Verratti has Pollyodd Lemoncello and Pollyodd Chocolatecello in over 100 Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) stores in and around the Philadelphia area and looks for more distribution throughout the state. As a South Philadelphia native, it was only natural that Verratti open a store at 1908 East Passyunk Avenue in South Philadelphia where customers can shop for specialty flavors. With this store, Verratti became the first Non-PLCB retail Liquor store in the state to go along with her being the first female owned Distillery in the country. Naoj & Mot is truly a labor of love for Verratti, who donates a portion of Pollyodd’s proceeds to fund a scholarship for underprivileged children in memory of her late son, Thomas Joseph. The Thomas J. Verratti III Memorial Scholarship provides tuition support for students to attend Bishop Neumann High School. To date, the scholarship fund has provided nearly $40,000 in tuition support.

Small Bites Radio correspondent Actor John DiRenzo will also be helping in studio with his valuable insight and experience in the culinary world and also be sure to catch him on QVC selling the high quality Copper Chef products.

With great pasta and sauces, you also may think about all the delicious bread you would want to eat to go with them as I love some good bread to go with my meal. Well we have the perfect person to talk about just that subject as we welcome Rustic Crust and American Flatbread CEO Brad Sterl on the show as well. It is the mission of American Flatbread to provide good, flavorful, nutritious food that gives both joy and health, and to share this food with others in ways sustainable to all. They set out to do this by:

Creating a pleasant, fulfilling and secure workplace

Trusting one another and practicing respectful relationships with those involved in this work

Supporting with their voices and their buying power local, regional and sustainable agriculture, the forces of peace and understanding, the cultural, economic and environmental needs of peoples worldwide and the ecological needs of the wild flora and fauna

Being an educational resource to the community

Being a good neighbor

Laughing and being of goodwill. Being grateful, respectful and forgiving and Encouraging these experiences in others

and

To make truly good food, food that not only fills our hunger and tastes good to our mouths but also nourishes, nurtures, and heals, we must start with good ingredients. American Flatbread is made with organic flour, organic tomatoes, and many organic & locally-farmed meats, veggies, and cheeses. American Flatbread sources ingredients from their unique, local network of farmers and producers and Rustic Crust pizza crusts are made with all natural, organic ingredients with no preservatives and GMOS. It all sounds delicious!

That’s us just getting started; we also have the pleasure of joining us in studio Jessica Hickey Kiefer who is the Sales and Event Planner for one of Philadelphia’s Premier restaurants, Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House. With almost 40 Years of Rich Tradition, Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House was born in 1981 with a bold vision – to embody the rich tradition of the classic American steakhouse.

Heading back to the food of Italy we are happy to welcome on the show Elisa Costantini the author of Italian Moms - The Art of Classic Italian Cooking & Tradition. Elisa was born in 1938 in Poggio Valle, Italy. The daughter of farmers, she learned to cook at a very young age as an apprentice to a local chef using simple, fresh ingredients to create wonderful food for those closest to her. After appearing on the Today Show and reoccurring guest spots on Rachael Ray Show, Elisa has signed with Sterling Publishing, a division of Barnes & Noble. Sterling released a hardback edition of her book in Fall 2017, and her new title Italian Moms – Something Old Something New will be released April 2018. The brand, Italian Moms, will also debut a line of Kitchen and Table Linens and Dinnerware in 2018. A treatment for a Motion Picture of her life story and immigration to the United States is also in the production stage. In May 2017, Elisa received an Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree from Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia, for her lifetime achievements, service to those with special needs and her work with charities. What a thrill to talk to such an inspiration.

Most shows would call it quits or be content with just one guest, but NOT US! How does all this food get cooked? In a kitchen of course and lucky us Chef Kathy Gold the owner of In The Kitchen Cooking School located in Downtown Haddonfield, New Jersey will also be coming in studio. Someone has to teach people how to cook and Chef Kathy is one of the best and most respected in the area as In the Kitchen Cooking School is the premier cooking school in the Delaware Valley. As featured in the HuffPost, Philadelphia Inquirer, the Courier Post, Bucks County Courier Times, and both New Jersey and NJ magazines, they offer deliciously creative and fun hands-on gourmet cooking classes, private parties, and team building events. Classes at In the Kitchen get students involved in every aspect of the art of cooking — just as if they were professional chefs. Students learn to prepare mise en place, cook with and without recipes, orchestrate a full meal, and plate their culinary creations. At the end of the evening, students dine together on the delicious meals they have created. WOW, that is what I call a show.

This Sunday, October 8th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio returns with another stellar lineup! We start out thinking about the tastes of Italy. When you think of Italy you probably think about pasta and we are joined by Marie Dobson the Senior Brand Manager of San Giorgio Pasta. For a young Italian immigrant named Girolamo Guerrisi, it would only take two years of working modest jobs in America before finding his footing. In 1914, Guerrisi took over the Keystone Macaroni Company, a one-man operation in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, from an elderly macaroni maker anxious to retire and transformed it into one of the most recognizable names in pasta, San Giorgio. In addition to classic white pasta, they also produce: gluten-free pasta, organic pasta, whole wheat pasta, noodles, high fiber pasta, veggie pasta, ancient grains pasta and reduced calorie pasta. They also did #SanGiorgio4Good where for every purchase of San Giorgio pasta they donated one serving of pasta, up to 2 million servings total nationally, to a food bank in your area. Then in response to consumers’ desire to make more informed choices about whether to eat foods which are made with genetically modified organisms (GMOs), San Giorgio has earned Non-GMO Project Verification on some their most popular pasta products. We bet a good Italian coffee or espresso from Donato Marino’s D and L Coffee Service Inc. would be the perfect accompaniment to a San Giorgio meal. Mangia everyone!

Keeping our thoughts around the Mediterranean area, we welcome Diane Kochilas, an award-winning cookbook author, television personality, consulting chef, teacher, and one of the world's foremost authorities on Greek cuisine. Diane launched a delectable cooking program - "My Greek Table With Diane Kochilas" (www.DianeKochilas.com) that premiered October 4th on public television stations across the country (check local listings) with 13 amazing episodes. The series takes viewers to the source, as Kochilas Diane introduces the stunning vistas, fabulous food, easy, nutritious recipes, and the unmatched hospitality Greece is known for worldwide. To celebrate the launch of the television series, St. Martin's Presswill re-release Diane's first book The Food and Wine of Greece. What a joy!

Getting closer to home in Philly, sometimes you may feel a little crabby, and now Luke Holden and Ben Conniff the co-founders of Luke's Lobster want you to claw your way into some delicious lobster, or crab and shrimp. Luke’s Lobster opened a new shack in Philadelphia’s Market East this July which is their second in Philly joining Luke's Lobster; a haven for residents and visitors alike to enjoy the highest-quality sustainable, traceable seafood in a rustic environment that evokes the Maine Coast. The vision of Maine native and one-time lobsterman Luke Holden, Luke’s Lobster is a cozy seafood shack committed to serving simple dishes highlighting superior ingredients — including lobster rolls, crab rolls, shrimp rolls, clam chowder, lobster bisque, salads, slaw and more. From ocean to plate, Luke’s handles every step of the supply chain to ensure that only exceptionally fresh seafood is ever served. Luke’s Lobster has already been hailed as the “best lobster roll in Philadelphia."

Joining us in studio is someone else who is having a grand opening soon in Center City Philadelphia. That would be Chef Robert Bennett who in February 2018 is opening up a 4,000 sq ft bakery at 16th and JFK in Suburban Station. Chef Robert Bennett joined Classic Cake in December 2005 as Executive Chef. In this role, Robert is the creative driving force behind the company’s product offerings and introduces unique, customized breads and desserts to the commercial market. Robert’s oversight also involves the daily operations of the bakery and is responsible for ensuring the company’s high quality product and service standards. For over 30 years, Robert Bennett has shared his passion for cooking through his work as a creative chef, teacher and owner. Most recently Chef Bennett has appeared on QVC here in the U.S. 5 times selling Classic Cake’s pastries and traveled to Seoul, Korea for several appearances on the CJO Shopping Network selling Classic’s own Philadelphia cheesecakes. Locally, Robert donates his time and dessert specialties to more than 30 charities each year.

Then also taking place in Philly at the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia Center City is Philadelphia, PA - The Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Show, America's largest interactive comedy murder mystery dinner show and we will have in studio Ian Beutler the Director of Dinner Detective Philadelphia to talk or maybe murder us. Legendary writer and producer David E. Kelley (Boston Legal, Ally McBeal, LA Law) taught founder of The Dinner Detective Scott O'Brien how to write. Then in 2014, O’Brien created America’s largest interactive murder mystery dinner theater, The Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Dinner Show, which currently boasts packed houses in 25 states, and redefines what the standard should be for 2017’s true theater lover. During a four-course meal, cast members engage with the audience, forcing them to toil together to discover clues and solve murders based on actual, real-world cold cases. What else is new beyond a thrilling, true-stories-based script? For starters, hidden amongst diners are cast members who blend in seamlessly, deceiving the audience into questioning anything and everything. It’s impossible to tell who is who and what is what – and it makes for a maddening great time, without a single second of lag. It’s a great night out and you should attend one of these dinners.

Small Bites Radio correspondent Actor John DiRenzo will also be helping in studio with his valuable insight and experience in the culinary world and also be sure to catch him on QVC selling the high quality Copper Chef products.

You say you STILL NEED MORE!!! Don't forget we still have our regular weekly segments from Courier-Post nightlife correspondent and The New York Times recognized John Howard-Fusco for his news of the week and please remember that John's new book "A Culinary History of Cape May: Salt Oysters, Beach Plums & Cabernet Franc" from Arcadia Publishing The History Press is now available to buy, Chef Barbie Marshall who is a Chef Gordon Ramsay Hell's Kitchen Season 10 finalist and appears on Season 17 of FOX Hell's Kitchen #AllStars, and Chef Barbie was named Pennsylvania’s most influential chef by Cooking Light will delight us with her tip of the week, and a joke of the week from legendary joke teller Jackie Martling of The Howard Stern Show fame and Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling with recent autobiography "The Joke Man: Bow to Stern" from Post Hill Press with foreword by Artie Lange available to order on Amazon.com.

At the epicenter of the beautiful, the fit, and the fiercely competitive exists a polarizing divide between yoga “traditionalists” and a new generation of social media-driven brand-builders. Yoga Girls reveals a never-before-seen side of yoga in a cutthroat city where the practice can sometimes lead to kicking some serious “asana.” Produced by Charlie Ebersol’s The Company, Yoga Girls premiered Sunday, September 24th at 8 p.m. ET on Z Living so be sure to tune in and catch the other Yoga Girls Caley Joyner, Elise Joan of Elise Joan Fitness.com, Jackie Smyth of Sisterhood of the Traveling Mats.com, Koya Webb with her patented “Get Loved Up” program, Calvin Corzine Yoga, Jesse Schein a senior teacher at Santa Monica’s famed YogaWorks, Vytas Baskauskas, and Sadie Nardini with groundbreaking app “Sadie Nardini’s Ultimate Yoga”.
