We’re spillin’ all the tea with this week’s show, and you can too–there’s plenty of pasta-bilities for you to experience new and exciting (food-loving) adventures!
 
Patti Fitzpatrick loves taking time to relax, especially when it comes time to spend with friends, which is exactly how she came to own The Talking Teacup in Chalfont, PA. Her love of tea and friendship built over time, with former owner Kathy Heck.  Kathy and Patti’s friendship grew, and soon Patti was doing what she loved alongside her friend.  Unfortunately, Kathy was diagnosed with a form of cancer and passed away–however her husband maintained the property of The Talking Teacup, so in 2021 Patti was inspired to re-open her beloved place to sit, relax, and build strong connections with friends.  Now, Patti owns and operates The Talking Teacup, offering seasonal menus, high tea experiences, and a place to enjoy a nice pot of tea.
 
The Rallo family has been in the culinary industry for multiple generations, and we sat down with Jake Rallo, who is the Manager of the Pasta Program at Birravino, located in Red Bank, NJ.  Since he was a child, Jake has had the desire to work in the culinary industry–taking on a different role as he grew up.  As time went on, Jake’s love for Italian cuisine and culture was ignited, and he ended up graduating from Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration where he studied business, food, and wine. Now, Jake joined us on Food Farms and Chefs to discuss his family’s restaurants and also to announce their newest addition to their family of restaurants–but you’ll have to stay tuned to find out what that is!
 
Lastly, we discussed one of our favorite things to happen in the food-loving community: Restaurant Week!  Main Line Today’s Fall season of Restaurant Week is happening right now–and we are so excited to help spread the word!  Not only can you dine out for a set-price for lunch or dinner (with a pre-fixe menu from participating restaurants), you have the opportunity to explore the Main Line when you go!  We love helping to support the culinary industry–and this is a perfect way to do so too while igniting your taste buds!  So stay tuned for our recommendations, and be sure to check out the 40+ restaurants that are participating in this amazing time of year!

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.
