Looking for an exciting and informative episode on Food Farms & Chefs? You’ve found it! This week we have stars from the hospitality industry, including the multi-talented Chef Kiki Aranita, the famous Farmer Lee Jones, and Philadelphia’s gem for the best date night’s Laura Eaton!
We began this week’s episode with Chef Kiki Aranita, who’s delicious creations for Poi Dog put her on the culinary map. She has since had to close the beloved Poi Dog restaurant, however the name (and sauces) live on! You’ve most likely heard of her, considering Chef Aranita has appeared on numerous magazines, television shows, and syndicated news outlets–and currently, on the shelves of businesses throughout the Philadelphia region. Join us as we speak with Kiki about her heritage, how she grew her business, and transitioned into creating a line of sauces that we’re clamoring for!
We then spoke with Farmer Lee Jones, who has literally wrote the book on regenerative farming methods! Not only has Jones written a book on how to grow nutrient-rich vegetables, his more than 300-acres of farmland has been nurtured to provide ingredients sought-after by the likes of Rachel Ray, Wolfgang Puck, and many more! His merits do not end there, he and his farm family have garnered James Beard Foundation Awards, a collaboration of Former First Lady Michelle Obama, and now…his delectable vegetables, edible flowers, and other products are available for purchase to ship across the USA. If you want to learn more about Lee Jones and his farm, there’s plenty more to listen to on Food, Farms, & Chefs!
