We rounded out our show with two amazing individuals who shared their culinary endeavors as well as offered samples from the dishes they created during the Taste of Philadelphia event.
We first heard from Passanantes Home Food Services‘ Krystan Hale as she joined us to describe her delectable Pork Carnitas. The Carnitas, which our co-host Amaris Pollock loved to savor, were definitely something to brag about! And Krystan wasn’t shy when it came to describing what made their food taste as amazing as it did: they use small-batch organic ingredients as well as proteins that come from non-antibiotic, hormone-free, free-range farms.
We then heard from one of the Queens of this years Taste of Philadelphia,
