D and L Coffee Service Inc. presents the #1 listed “Food Radio show Philadelphia” and #1 listed “Food Radio show South Jersey”, Small Bites with Donato Marino and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio Podcast Recording Studio this Sunday, October 6th at 635pm EST with a stellar lineup and special co-host John Howard-Fusco.
We are happy to welcome Jordan Zucker, a University of Pennsylvania graduate to talk about the first of its kind cookbook harmonizing food, wine, and sound “One Dish – Four Seasons: Food, Wine, and Sound – All Year Round” from Home Sauce Publications. The cookbook is a thoughtfully laid out family collaboration and sophisticated labor of love. Zucker also known as the ringleader for the modern female sports fan (who hosts A Girl’s Guide to Sports, appeared on Food Network’s Grill It! with Bobby Flay, and was a recurring character on the popular TV series Scrubs) takes a base recipe, and by varying seasonally available ingredients, creatively builds four versions of each dish (with help from her expert cook mom): for winter, spring, summer and fall. Then the dish goes from good to great when matched with a complementing wine (with suggestions from her former- sommelier dad) and hip tunes. Jordan also has a book signing at University of Pennsylvania Bookstore Barnes & Noble on Monday, October 14th at 6pm.
Then we are thrilled to welcome Daniel Leader the pioneer from Bread Alone Bakery, who revolutionized American artisan bread baking to talk about his new book with Lauren Chattman called “Living Bread: Tradition and Innovation in Artisan Bread Making” from Avery Publishing of Penguin Group (USA). At twenty-two, Daniel Leader stumbled across the intoxicating perfume of bread baking in the back room of a Parisian boulangerie, and he has loved and devoted himself to making quality bread ever since. He went on to create Bread Alone, the now-iconic bakery that has become one of the most beloved artisan bread companies in the country. Today, professional bakers and bread enthusiasts from all over the world flock to Bread Alone Bakery’s headquarters in the Catskill, New York to learn Dan’s signature techniques and baking philosophy. Living Bread provides a fascinating look into the way artisan bread baking has evolved and continues to change–from wheat farming practices and advances in milling, to sourdough starters and the mechanics of mixing dough. Influenced by art and science in equal measure, Leader presents exciting twists on classics such as Curry Tomato Ciabatta, Vegan Brioche, and Chocolate Sourdough Babka, as well as traditional recipes. Sprinkled with anecdotes and evocative photos from Leader’s own travels and encounters with artisans who have influenced him, Living Bread is a love letter, and a cutting-edge guide, to the practice of making “good bread.”
Also joining in on the fun will be John Stewart the owner and Executive Chef of Kitchen 519 a standby for American comfort food prepared with local ingredients in a cheerful, art-lined space in Glendora, New Jersey. A former mechanics garage has been transformed with high ceilings, eclectic design, and lots of flair giving Kitchen 519 a feel not found around the area. The menu is constantly evolving and innovative with a focus on fresh and sustainable always trying to give back to the community while still being affordable for all to come out and dine.
Last but certainly not least is Michael Gabriele to talk about his fourth book on New Jersey history “Stories from New Jersey Diners: Monuments to Community” from American Palate The History Press Arcadia Publishing documenting colorful stories from the Diner Capital of the World. Michael is a graduate of Montclair State University and has worked as a journalist, freelance writer, diner blogger for Jersey Bites, and author for more than forty years. He is a member of the board of trustees for the annual New Jersey Folk Festival at Rutgers University and a member of the executive board for the Nutley Historical Society and serves on the advisory board of the Clifton Cultural Arts Center. Diners are where communities across the Garden State go to celebrate milestones, form lifetime bonds and take comfort in food. Daily life at the counter or in the booth inspires sentimental recollections that reflect the state’s spirit and history. Late-night eats fueled Wildwood, New Jersey wild rock-and-roll days. An entrepreneur traveled eight thousand miles from India and opened a diner in Shamong, New Jersey. From an impromptu midnight wedding in an Elizabeth lunch wagon to a Vietnam veteran sustained by a heartfelt note from a beloved Mount Holly Township NJ waitress, these are true tales from the soul of New Jersey.

What a fun and beautiful area to visit with plenty of outdoor adventures to be had around every turn. They also have quite a fun little culinary scene going on.

Cafe Arielle at the Stabin Museum – Jim Thorpe, PA

A great quirky museum with the work of Victor Stabin is housed in the same building as the restaurant. We were lucky enough to be seated for dinner with a stream of water underneath the table that you can look at through glass. Once you order food you can stroll around and look at the art and then enjoy a nice meal. We had sweet and spicy shrimp with ginger noodles, baked brie and pear, chicken piccata, and mussels in champagne cream sauce.

Bonnie & Clyde Pub and Grill – Lehighton, PA

The food here was pretty good and service was top notch. The desserts are made in house and our waitress was actually the pastry chef as well. Cool décor, nice setup, and great beer menu. Had clam chowder, colossal lump crab meat swimming in a creamy butter with sautéed veggies and brown rice, and crème brulee.

Muggles’ Mug Coffee Shop – Jim Thorpe, PA

A cool little hangout with lots of Harry Potter themed things going on here. Enjoyed this cookie while playing a game of chess on a Harry Potter chess set.

This pizza place had some of the friendliest service around, price you can’t beat with specials, and they even have a nice miniature golf course that they let you play in the back of the restaurant while your food is cooking. If in the area and want pizza, you definitely should stop by here as the pizza was delicious as well.

Each installment offers an individually unique and unbelievably palatable collection of epicurean experiences for the 420 consumer.

Then we welcome food blogger Food in Jars, cookbook author, and canning teacher Marisa McClellan to talk about her latest book “The Food in Jars Kitchen: 140 Ways to Cook, Bake, Plate, and Share Your Homemade Pantry” from Running Press. Marisa McClellan wants everyone to know that a pantry full of homemade jams, jellies, salsas, and pickles can do a whole lot more than accompany toast. They can add bold bursts of flavor to your home cooking. Marisa has also been featured in The New York Times, USA TODAY, Parents Magazine, Wirecutter, Food Network, Serious Eats, The Kitchn, Grid Magazine, SAVEUR Magazine, Edible Philly, and Table Matters.

Going from jars to things in bottles we will have on Wesley Narron the Chief Wine Ambassador for City Wine Tours Philadelphia. City Wine Tours recently started running walking wine tours around 3 Philly neighborhoods. On their tours you’ll go to the heart of a neighborhood, sample delicious wines, taste contemporary cuisine and discover great restaurants. Each neighborhood is different, but you’ll drink good wine and have fun on every tour. Each tour will visit two stops, and sample 6 different wines. Sounds like fun to us.

Last, but certainly not least we will have join us William Malnati the founder of At Will Media. This 33 year old entrepreneur is taking the podcasting world by storm, but his early start was in hospitality.

Originally from Chicago, IL, he grew up in a family of restaurateurs: the grandson of Lou Malnati, founder of Chicago’s beloved pizza empire, Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria). Will helped develop the restaurant brand Catch NYC, and went on his own to grow the hospitality brand Toro NYC. In 2015 he shifted his focus to media and podcasting and now has one of the fastest growing companies producing audio for brands like WeWork, Morgan Stanley, Viacom, GQ, New York Public Library, and the Clinton Foundation.
