Here’s the scoop on this week’s Food Farms and Chefs Radio Show!
We’re starting out with a gamers delight with an ice cream shop open year-round, then chatting with a Guiness World Record-holding restaurant with a focus on Northern Italian cuisines and a plethora of wines from around the globe, and we’ll end our show with the co-owner and Chef behind a newly-opened restaurant rooted in the heart of French-based cuisine!
Partners Chris Macguire and Steve Wright Jr. have been friends since they were six years old, and both have a deep love of two things: Gaming and ice cream.  In fact, Chris’ love of ice cream was so well-known that he received two ice cream makers as a wedding gift.  A gift that he and his wife began experimenting in ice cream-making at home. Some time later, Chris’ trials and errors yielded braggable versions that others could enjoy too.  So when he wanted to change careers and had accrued a good amount of savings, it made sense to combine the two passions.  So now, we can enjoy playing classic video games while enjoying every last spoonful of the frozen treats at Tubby Robot in Manayunk.
The well-known, iconic, Old-City Philadelphia-based Panorama Wine Bar has been delighting visitors for years.  Since their opening in 1990, the focus on Italian cuisine and wine has won them awards, and even a place in the Guiness Book of World Records.  So, we are more than happy to speak with Panorama’s Executive Chef, Anthony DiSabato.  Anthony, who grew up and began working inside the kitchens of South Philadelphia joined us to talk with co-host Gene Blum about the love of Italian culture, wine, and what Chef DiSabato’s personal touches to the menu options at Panorama Wine Bar!
Chef Joseph Burton and his wife, Amanda Ngangana, both worked in the hospitality industry, with Chef Burton formerly working at Foreman Wolfe’s Johnny’s Downstairs, and Giadda De Laurentiis’ GDL Italian.  And after traveling to Bastille, France, they wanted to bring French cuisine to their hometown. So, when the couple decided to open their restaurant, they both had a clear idea as to what the focus would be: Rustic French cuisine.  However, the pandemic delayed their ability to open and they considered opening a food truck; fortunately they found a spot that they loved and persistence and perseverance prevailed and the couple opened Rooted Rotisserie in Baltimore, MD.
