On this week’s Food Farms & Chefs Radio Show we took a pit stop at some of our favorite diners across the US, including the state with the most diners and the oldest running diner in the US. After that, we visited a chic restaurant that offers elevated takes on food that you find comfort in before moving onto our final guest, who was a piece of cake to speak with–especially when every meal is best served with dessert!
We began our show by discussing the history behind America’s iconic diners, and then forked up some of our favorite spots! Of course some of these beloved diners are located in close proximity to PA and South Jersey, but when you love to eat, you love to travel too! So be sure to tune in to hear some of the lovely memories that Gene Blum and Amaris Pollock have from years of their own foodie adventures!
And what better way to celebrate something new than giving back to others in need? Which is exactly what Chef Derek Davis of Libertine in Philadelphia is doing with the launch of their new brunch options! During the remainder of September and throughout September, they’ll be serving up delicious Bailys, Bagels, and Benedicts with a side of donations to a local LGBTQ+ organization in the neighborhood. You can hear all about it when you tune into this week’s episode, and be sure to stay till the end to hear how Chef Davis makes the scrumptious burgers that a well-known food critic and columnist loves!
Lastly, we want you to have your cake and eat it too. Which is why we brought attorney and entrepreneur, Cassandra Burnett, on the show to discuss Lizzie’s Love Cakes! Born from the love of her mother (and recipes passed down from generation to generation), Cassandra conceptualized an idea of baking cakes that her family grew up enjoying and turned it into Lizzie’s Love Cakes! in 2020. Since then Cassandra has found her sweet ending with the success and growth of her business venture, and is now branching out by offering classes at Old City Kitchen.
