We love indulging all of you with new, sweet, and nutrient-rich foods, and this week’s Food Farms and Chefs Radio Show has it all!
Do you love dumplings? We do too. That’s one of the many reasons we spoke with Nick Sordoni, one of the owners behind the growing brand Brooklyn Dumpling Show (Philadelphia). The brand, which originated in Manhattan, New York, quickly gained in popularity when it launched during the pandemic. As a fully automat-based eatery, visitors can order ahead and use a QR code to pick up their fresh bites. Guests can choose from a hot or cold menu, with options like Rueben, Philly Cheesesteak, or Peanut Butter & Jelly Dumplings.

Everyone loves a sweet ending–and our next guest is positioned to satisfy your sweet tooth! We spoke with Laura Carroll, whose role as Insomnia Cookies’ Director of Sales offers not only insight, but sheer bliss with every delectable bite. Carroll’s career took on a life of its own within the culinary industry, and after finding her path drawing closer towards food, she eventually began working for Insomnia Cookies. We chatted with Laura regarding her own history, as well as took a deeper look into what makes their cookies, brownies, and other sweet treats so irresistible. Also, be sure to visit their location in South Philly (across from Geno’s & Pat’s), just remember to follow their instagram stories to access some hidden fun!
Speaking of irresistible, we can’t imagine leafing out some of the best things in life: Farmers Markets! Farms play an important role in all our lives, and our final guest, Bilal Rice, is the Program Manager for The Food Trust in Philadelphia. Bilal let all of us know what The Food Trust does, where to find them, and the importance in offering the opportunity to purchase nutrient-rich foods to communities that are in food desserts. The Food Trust originated by offering classes in Philadelphia’s Reading Terminal Market in 1992. Years later, they now operate Farmers Markets in 35 locations in Philadelphia. If you want to hear more of what you’ll find at one of their markets, their locations & hours, or simply find out more information about the programs you offer, then tune in to Food Farms and Chefs Radio Show!
