We love highlighting everyone from farmers and start-ups to established restaurateurs and chefs, and this week’s Food, Farms, and Chefs Radio Show bundled several in one bountiful episode!
Food Trucks have become a popular (and dare we say sought-after) foodie trend, but what happens when you bring two hot trends into one concept? Our first guests, Electronic Eats set out to do just that. Co-Founders Nina-Maria Lara-Daniels and Armand Wilson met during the filming of a movie, and found a mutual love of gaming and food. Somewhere along the way, the pair’s love and ideas blossomed, and Electronic Eats was born. Of course not all ideas run smoothly when they are first established, so tune in to hear how they turned a second-hand food truck into a well-run, entertaining, and food-centric mobile gaming center.
Co-Founder Rich Shaget and his Chef, Randy Smith, joined us to discuss Osteria 545. The location offers a deeper connection to the community, holding a history in the culinary world which you’ll find etched into their bar-literally. As for their venue’s refurbished areas–the rooms were established to offer a better dining experience. They wanted to ensure that guests of Osteria 545 would have an uninterrupted meal while partaking of the set-menus and fresh takes on farm-to-table specials. What makes this restaurant even more remarkable? Co-Founder Bruce Santino is also the owner of Black Sheep Farm, which offers fresh produce on a weekly basis for both Chefs (Santino and Smith) to come up with creative dishes for their patrons to enjoy. Looking to hear more? Then tune in to find out about one of the Specials running this week at Osteria 545, and so much more!
Our final guest, Co-Founder and Head Brewer Wayne Humphrey of My Local Brew Works, joined us from their location just inside Globe Dye Works. We had an in-depth discussion regarding how Wayne and his co-founder (Tim Montague) began their journey into the craft-brew scene, and how their business concept offers a distinct difference from all other breweries. After making a splash on the competition circuit they formed a friendship with Philly Brewing icon and author, George Hummel, who helped their journey with his expertise. After delaying the initial launch for My Local Brew Works (as a result of the 2020 pandemic), Humphrey and Montague are preparing their Northeast Philadelphia-based business to launch, offering cases of beers that are chosen and created by you–that’s right! Your next gathering, event, or heck–even if you just want to grab a beer to brag about is at your fingertips. If you want to know more–stay tuned until the end of this week’s Food, Farms, and Chefs episode to find out!

Jewish Perspectives on the News and Politics with Burt Siegel

This program will not hold back on what the host and his guests believe is wrong with an American society in which anti-Jewish sentiments as well as racism have become too often tolerated, where cooperation across party lines is treated as treachery, where immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to the “American Way of Life” and the gap between the ultra wealthy and the average American is ever widening. While it will reflect the values of Judaism and the Democratic party all are welcomed to share their thoughts regarding how we can achieve the dream of what our nation aspires to be about.
