We are thrilled to welcome Micheal Sparks the CEO AND CO-OWNER of UGK bringing one of the hottest culinary events to Philadelphia on Saturday, August 17th called The Underground Kitchen “The New Americana” Tour with Homer Laughlin China Collectors Association – HLCCA. This experiential dining society, is known for hosting high-style, multi-course dinners in secret locations with renowned and up-and-coming chefs. The tour, inspired by Netflix’s “Chef’s Table,” will tell the diverse American stories of our chefs through their dishes, each carefully selected to convey personally memorable moments from their life. The featured chef in Philadelphia is Michael Stuckey of Southern Way Catering, the premiere catering company of Columbia, South Carolina. “Part of Underground Kitchen is us getting to know our chefs personally – getting to know their hearts and souls and not just their heads and hands,” adds Sparks. “This tour is about our chefs telling their unique personal stories – from childhood to adulthood… sometimes tragic, more times triumphant – all prepared and plated in an intimate, evocative, community-connecting, no-holds-barred multi-course dinner.” Sounds like a great time to us!
Without Derek Timm in studio, the Small Bites crew were in a pickle so they decided to call upon Lee Lawley the owner of Delco Dills to help out and come in. Delco Dills – In a Pickle? Get it? Oh, nevermind. Delco Dills LLC is a small, family-owned pickle business operating in Collingdale, Delaware County PA. After much experimentation, a perfect combination of brine and ingredients produced a fresh and flavorful pickle that Lee along with his wife Elaine Lawley began to share with family and friends. An overwhelming and humbling response of positive feedback and support inspired them to continue in their pickle-making efforts and share the product with others. They began selling their product at local fairs and festivals and now can be found in local markets, pizza places, and restaurants in Delaware and Chester counties as well as a farmer’s market in New Jersey.
Then also joining in the fun will be Mike Ammirati of Ammirati Coffee who is based in New York and Enrico Marchionni who is the east coast sales manager for Toschi Vignola.
