Cape May 2018 Tasty Eats and Treats

Cape May Tasty Eats and Treats

Having John Howard-Fusco a Cape May, New Jersey expert and author of “A Culinary History of Cape May: Salt Oysters, Beach Plums & Cabernet Franc” by The History Press at my disposal on Small Bites Radio is an asset. So when I knew I would be spending a few days down there, you’re darn right I asked for his advice and followed his wonderful book to have a great time while in Cape May. If interested in doing this as well CLICK HERE to buy his book. Below are the delicious things I had to eat in and around the area. Be sure to try them out for yourself and thank me and John Howard-Fusco later. Fyi, you really don’t need to thank me, and John would much rather you just buy his book 😉 JK

Lobster House – Cape May, NJ

Pictured is Snapper Soup, Famous Crab Soup, Fresh Jersey Oysters on the half shell, Jersey Baked Clams Casino, Clam Bake Dinner with lobster, steamed clams, shrimp, mussels, red skin potato, and an ear of corn, and a side of fresh cut thick French fries. Everything was great and the view is enjoyable on the deck.

 

Mad Batter – Cape May, NJ

Pictured is Mad Batter Clam Chowder a rich blend of chopped clams, onions and bacon in a heavy cream broth with a touch of saffron, Pan Seared Red Snapper and Battered Shrimp with warm corn salad, lime compound butter, fresh avocado, mashed potatoes and asparagus, and Chocolate Lava Cake. This was a great meal and loved the atmosphere and service was top notch.

 

Elizabeth Degener A.K.A the Cape May Bread Lady with Enfin Farms at 609 Sunset Blvd, Cape May, NJ

I was lucky enough to get the very last piece of bread for sale for the day and the stand was only open for less than an hour. Pictured is the pumpernickel bread and it was AMAZINGLY awesome and tasty.

 

Uncle Bill’s Pancake House & Family Restaurant – Cape May, NJ

ub2

Pictured are their famous tender buttermilk pancakes that they have been serving for over 50 years. They were so yummy and a good way to start the day with food in my belly.

 

Then not technically in Cape May, but close enough to drive to we visited Back Bay Bistro – Villas, NJ

Pictured is crab bisque which was awesome, steamers which is littleneck clams in a garlic wine broth that were out of this world, and their Honey Dipped Fried Chicken that was a slam dunk of a great meal and would order again in a second. This place really surprised me since it was a little off the beaten path and food was top notch.

LIVE this Sunday, June 3rd at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio is an ALL-STAR lineup. How do we know this??? Because as Nike said; BO KNOWS!!! That’s right; we are thrilled to welcome Bo Jackson. Bo is the first athlete in history to be named an All-Star in both MLB with the Kansas City Royals and NFL with the The Oakland Raiders and named ESPN’s Greatest Athlete of All Time. Bo will be joining us to talk about his amazing food line Bo Jackson’s 34 Signature Foods. Over the years, Bo acquired a passion for preparing great tasting food in the kitchen and he wants everyone who enjoys cooking as much as he does to experience the quality of Bo Jackson Signature Foods. Small Bites was also honored to team up with Aversa PR & Events and Culinary Fight Club CEO Jiwon McCartney to present Philadelphia’s first CFC Mushroom Council Blended Burger Challenge using his Bo’s Burgers Patty Mix on May 3rd at Uptown Beer Garden MC’d by Christian Collins that benefited Fight2Feed with amazing talent like Chef Christine Hazel, Chef Enrico Botto, Chef Kwame Dennis and more judged by Doug Keiles, Lisa Keys and others. It was an intense and extremely close competition with Chef Brent Berry and Hiram Quintana coming out victorious with a chance to compete at the World Food Championships now. We can’t wait to talk to Bo and all about his Bo Jackson’s 34 Signature Foods 🙂

Then to keep the ALL-STAR lineup continuing we are pleased to welcome Fogo de Chão. As Limp Bizkit and Snoop Dogg sang, Fogo de Chão is all about the red-light\green light. You ready to roll? The story of Fogo de Chão began in the mountainous countryside of Rio Grande do Sul in Southern Brazil. It is the lessons their founding brothers learned on their family farms that gave them the ambition to share their rich culinary heritage with the rest of the world. As a leading Brazilian steakhouse, or churrascaria, specializing in the centuries-old Southern Brazilian cooking technique of churrasco – the art of roasting high-quality cuts of meats over open flame, all of which are carved tableside by Brazilian-trained gaucho chefs. Fogo’s distinctive and authentic Brazilian dining experience begins with the seasonal Market Table and Feijoada Bar, which includes seasonal salads, soup, fresh vegetables, imported charcuterie and more. The restaurant features a variety of simply seasoned meats that are fire-roasted by gaucho chefs, plus seafood, desserts, signature cocktails and an award-winning wine list. Well now internationally-renowned steakhouse Fogo de Chão is inviting guests to experience its newest seasonal offerings created just for summer. Standout items at the Market Table, which is available during Weekday Lunch for $15, include refreshing salads such as Watermelon Feta and Heirloom Tomato & Mozzarella, plus a nutrient-dense Chickpea salad. Summer also brings the return of the Watermelon Fresca mocktail. The $15 Weekday Lunch includes the seasonal Market Table & Feijoada Bar plus family-style service of Brazilian side dishes. Guests may choose to add a single selection of fire-roasted meat for under $25, or indulge in the Full Churrasco Experience. What a treat!!

We’re still batting a thousand with another ALL-STAR. This time we welcome Chef Todd Toven to talk about Blackstone Products who is THE expert in outdoor griddles. Time to add outdoor griddling for delicious cooking that goes beyond the “same old, same old.” Anything that can be cooked on a typical grill can be cooked on a griddle — along with thousands of other foods. By combining the latest technology with innovation, Blackstone griddles take families from breakfast to lunch to dinner with desserts and snacks in between. Foods that could never be cooked on a traditional grill can now be cooked outdoors using Blackstone Products. Think about cooking outdoors eggs, pancakes, bacon, stir fry, cheesesteaks, even delicate fish. Griddling is easy to learn and, even more importantly, easy to clean. The transportable Blackstone griddles are perfect for tailgating, camping, parties with friends and even those with limited outdoor space. Chef Todd Toven is an expert in outdoor cooking as Chef Todd after graduating from college in 1994 worked as a line chef and cook for a few different restaurants. This is where his creativity in the kitchen started to be developed. He eventually combined his cooking skills with his love for the outdoors. He started self-filming his high country hunts in 2008 and posting them on YouTube. He later started filming videos on wild game cooking, camp cooking, camping, and other outdoor-related topics. His videos have now received MILLIONS of views from outdoor enthusiasts around the world! Check out Chef Todd’s YouTube channel at

Finally we have the ALL-STAR sugar buster. We can’t wait to would founder and CEO Björn Öste of Good Idea Drinks. Good Idea Inc. is the US subsidiary of Swedish food & biotech company Aventure AB. Good Idea – the Swedish Sugar Buster is available in the company webshop (www.goodideadrinks.com), on Amazon and at various retailers across the US.

In addition, to traditional retailers and grocery chains Good Idea is working closely with corporate wellness centers, nutritionists and other leading health care professionals to make the Swedish Sugar Buster available in retail and food service. Good Idea –the Swedish Sugar Buster is designed and scientifically proven to help a healthy person handle the sugar spike following a carb-rich meal. Now paving the way in the supplement category and earning recognition in Prevention Magazine. Many ordinary meals such as burgers, pizzas, fries, white bread and even sushi contain fast carbs that make the blood sugar spike and then drop again like a stone. Most people recognize this as the slump that can occur after a meal. In the long run, these recurring spikes and lows put a strain on the metabolism. Good Idea contains an all-natural blend of five amino acids and chromium in flavored sparkling water, clinically proven to help the body handle the sugar spike following a meal. With Good Idea they are targeting to disrupt the soda industry with their Swedish Sugar Buster.

LIVE this Sunday, May 20th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio is a great lineup. We are thrilled to welcome Chef/Partners Scott Schroeder and Pat O’Malley of Hungry Pigeon in studio. The restaurant is the dream project of Scott and Pat. Best known for serving comfort food in an all-day cafe/restaurant environment, Hungry Pigeon is beloved by Philadelphians and visitors alike. They met as line cooks 13 years ago at ¡Pasion! Restaurant and they haven’t matured a bit despite their combined thirty-five plus years in the restaurant industry. They also have friendship, resourcefulness, and, fortunately, complimentary skills. The two of them plan the Hungry Pigeon’s menus daily. Their girlfriends designed the space, but O’Malley and Schroeder take credit for it every time. The team was also on the James Beard Foundation Semifinalist list this year: Chef/Partner Pat O’Malley up for Outstanding Pastry Chef nationwide. Can’t wait to talk to them!

Our next guest is Gregory Conocchioli the owner of Gregory Benjamin Artisan Preserves and Marmalades. Greg started making preserves with neighbors when he was eight years old. His passion for artisan home made products and home style presentation took him from this simple beginning to the opening of his own catering business in Philadelphia, PA in 1984. Preserves led to chutneys and pickled products and also to baked confections, and then to off-premise catering which led to his wholesale bakery, Made in Buck’s County. Philadelphia Magazine named Gregory’s Chocolate Chip Cookie the Best of Philly. He was again named by Philadelphia Magazine, the Best of Philly in August 2013, for his preserves. In November 2013, he was named Best Artisanal Spread by Cooking Light magazine. In 2015 his Country Christmas Marmalade received the prestigious Artisan Marmalade Gold Award at the Dalemain Mansion & Historic Gardens, Cumbria Travel, England. Once again in 2016 he received the Artisan Marmalade Silver Award for his MacGregory Benjamins Orange Marmalade, a Bronze Award for Scented Lemon Rhubarb Marmalade, and a special commendation for his Sealed with a Kiss Chocolate Orange Raspberry Marmalade. His gourmet food stores in Frenchtown, New Jerseyand New Hope PA were known for his signature gift baskets and gift boxes. For many years these stores were the only places in America where you could buy his amazing products. Now you can buy them on-line and we’ll ship them directly from his kitchen to your home or gift recipient. They all sound delicious!

With warmer weather finally upon us on the East Coast, it’s that time again to PLAY BALL! We are happy to welcome General Manager Justin Ferrarella of the Sussex County Miners, a professional baseball team in the independent Can-Am League. Fans can enjoy exciting baseball, promotional nights, and great daily specials, including their spectacular fireworks shows. They have a unique set-up in rural and picturesque Sussex County, New Jersey where you can check out a fun dinner-and-a-show experience at Skylands Stadium, a minor league baseball park in Augusta, NJ with an on-site restaurant run by Krave Cafe + Caterer. The restaurant WheelHouse Craft Kitchen + Bar, works with many local farms, breweries and distilleries in Northwest NJ to create fresh menu items that are always changing to reflect the changing season and events. They also provide cocktails and refreshments inside the events including food truck festivals, beer festivals, comedy nights, boat shows, light shows, and holiday extravaganzas, as well as private and corporate functions. Sounds like a match made in heaven!

To top it all off we also have joining us Nathan Marshall. He is a passionate and dedicated wine enthusiast who loves to have fun! He has worked in the industry creating tasting notes for wineries/agencies, running digital marketing campaigns promoting wine and beer, and working as a wine expert for a chain of wine and spirits retailers. He started off several years ago as someone who was at best, mildly interested in wine. I remembered hearing people discuss different types of wine and how something like where the grapes were grown can even impact the end result. To someone who didn’t really grow up with wine, this was a very strange idea to him. Over the course of the next several years, a mild interest flourished into a full on passion. He began attending regular tastings, subscribing to different magazines, interacting with people online, and basically soaking up any and all information he could get my hands on related to wine. His website is http://nathantm.com and his YouTube is http://www.youtube.com/jalapenonate

Small Bites Radio’s resident Vegan Food Chef Christina Martin of Cooking To Nourish will also be back in studio for some fun and food talk with us and our guests.

LIVE this Sunday, May 6th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio with Cinco de Mayo! on most Americans minds this weekend, we are happy to welcome Chef Eddie Hernandez who was born in Monterrey, Mexico and is the executive chef of Taqueria del Sol. He and his business partner, Mike Klank , were nominated for a 2017 James Beard Foundation Outstanding Restaurateur Award. His recipes have appeared in Bon Appétit Magazine, Food & Wine, Southern Living, and Garden & Gun Magazine. He joins us to talk about his new cookbook “Turnip Greens & Tortillas: A Mexican Chef Spices Up the Southern Kitchen” from Rux Martin and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt written with Susan Puckett. USA TODAY called Taqueria del Sol “a runaway success.” Bon Appétit wrote: “Move over, Chipotle!” The fast-casual food of Eddie Hernandez, the James Beard-nominated chef/co-owner of the restaurant, lands on the commonalities of Southern and Mexican food, with dishes like Memphis barbecue pork tacos, chicken pot pie served in a “bowl” of a puffed tortilla, turnip greens in “pot likker” spiked with chiles, or the “Eddie Palmer,” sweet tea with a jab of tequila. Eddie never hesitates to break with purists to make food taste better, adding sugar to creamy grits to balance the jalapeños, or substituting tomatillos in fried green tomatoes for a more delicate texture. Throughout, “Eddie’s Way” sidebars show how to make each dish even more special. What a treat!

Then coming on the show will be Ray Sheehan the Event Organizer of the 2nd Annual Philadelphia All Star Craft Beer & Wine Festival at Citizens Bank Park. After a sell-out crowd last year, thousands of beer enthusiasts and wine lovers will return to Citizens Bank Park on May 19, 2018 for the The Philly All-Star Craft Beer, Wine, and Cocktail Festival. Guests will be treated like ballpark royalty with exclusive giveaways, activities, and amazing craft beer and wine samples from around the world.

Ticket holders will also receive free parking, a voucher for two (2) tickets to a Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park, and get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get their picture taken in the Philadelphia Phillies dugout after walking the bases and warning track! This year, “The Yard” will also be open for attendees to take swings at the Phillies new whiffle ball park, and enjoy a variety of games throughout the entire concourse, such as giant bocci, fowling, cornhole, and even shoot some hot dogs from the Hatfield hot dog launcher. Four DJ’s, and two Acoustic Duo’s will also amp up the crowd, and keep the party going. Additionally, the Phillies vs. Cardinals will be airing LIVE on the giant 1,500” screen and dozens of screens throughout the ballpark to provide a true all star experience. The event runs from 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm and VIP ticket holders will have access to the Hall of Fame Club/VIP Area with one-hour early entry at 2:00 p.m., and additional select beer & wine samples. The All-Star Craft Beer and Wine will benefit the Phila FOP Lodge 5 and Michael Barkann‘s The Barkann Family Healing Hearts Foundation uniting a sense of community in the Philadelphia region. The Foundation provides financial assistance to families who are in need, due to recent adversity or tragedy and are immensely grateful to be a part of the festival. Planning to take the festival across the nation, Dennis Gaudenzi, owner of Upcoming Events.com is thrilled to host the annual festival in the City of Brotherly Love for its second year. He says “We are so excited to have this Festival at one of the best Ballparks in the Majors – the Home of the Phillies! It is certain to be a “can’t miss” event with entertainment and great craft beer and wine, both local and from around the world!” It’s an event that should not be missed!

Also joining us will be Domenick Crimi the General Manager of Cappuccio’s Meats Old World Butcher Shop a Family Affair Since 1920 in the heart of 9th Street Italian Market.

We are also thrilled to welcome Nancy Sirianni a singer, songwriter, actor and producer from Long Island, New York. Her long-time group, recording artists the scoldees, released two critically acclaimed CDs of original music that received nationwide airplay: MY PATHETIC LIFE and NIGHTCAP WORLD (OHR Records ©2000 and 2003).

LIVE this Sunday, April 29th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio Derek returns from I LOVE NEW YORK and Visit Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and the show has a foodie wonderland and feast for the ears with one of our biggest lineups ever. In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month (April), we are thrilled to welcome Chef Katie Lee, the ultimate comfort food expert and co-host of the Emmy nominated Food Network’s The Kitchen and the Cooking Channel’s Beach Bites with Katie Lee. She shares ways to elevate your comfort food experience with delicious grilled cheese sandwich mashups that are easy to make at home. Lee is a member of the Feeding America Entertainment Council, an ambassador for 96 Elephants, on the board of the Food Bank of New York, works closely with the Wildlife Conservation Society, and she has also volunteered for Les Dames d’Escoffier Int’l (LDEI), an organization that educates and mentors women in the culinary profession. What an honor!

Then we are so happy to welcome Siri Daly of food blog Siriously Deliciousto talk about her new cookbook “Siriously Delicious: 100 Nutritious (and Not So Nutritious) Simple Recipes for the Real Home Cook” from Oxmoor House Books. Like many of us trying to feed our families, Siri Daly is a very busy cook. As a mother of three under the age of 10, Today Showfood contributor, and wife of a bicoastal traveling man, Carson Daly (“The Voice” host and TODAY show co-host), Siri often doesn’t know which end is up. Siri is not a serious cook, but she is serious about her food—and what she serves her family, friends and loved ones. Siriously Delicious is organized by how a busy mom gets through her day—breakfast, lunch, happy hour (her favorite!), dinner with sides, and dessert. Siri’s recipes are created with three goals in mind: to create food that is delicious and satisfying for both kids and adults, to prepare dishes packed with traditionally comforting flavors and ingredients (think cheese, avocado, chocolate!), and to make each recipe approachable for even a novice cook—no trips to specialty food stores are required. Whether you’re looking for easy-to-cook recipes your kids will devour, such as mouth-watering Bacon Pizzadillas, or you’re dying to relax with a Spicy Grapefruit Cocktail when the days feel too long, this cookbook has a recipe for every occasion. Siri also includes extra tips to make your time in the kitchen easier: Siriously Simple offers a hack or time-saving tip, Siriously Sinful details how to make something even more indulgent, Siriously Nutritious explains how to make something healthier, and Siriously Mini advises how to satisfy the kiddos. Filled with Siri’s often hilarious anecdotes, Siriously Delicious will not only feed your family’s bellies but hopefully deliver a belly laugh along the way. We can’t wait!

Keeping the fun going, joining us as well is Justin Chapple the Culinary Director of Food & Wine and host of Food & Wine’s video series Mad Genius Tips to talk about his new book “Just Cook It!: 145 Built-to-Be-Easy Recipes That Are Totally Delicious” from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Time Inc. Books. Before joining FOOD & WINE, he graduated from the The French Culinary Institute and worked under Chef Alain Allegretti in New York City, but Justin Chapple knows how people really cook at home. He grew up with a large family, first learning kitchen tricks from his grandmother who made do with whatever they had, and she made the food delicious. In his job as the Culinary Director of the test kitchen, he’s often asked to take recipes from superstar chefs (think David Chang and Thomas Keller) and simplify them for home cooks. Now he is putting all of his expertise to good use in Just Cook It!, a collection of 125 mouthwatering recipes like Avocado Pizza with Dukka and Stovetop Mac-n-Cheese with Bacon Breadcrumbs, with Justin’s signature time-saving tips and hacks throughout. AMESOME!!!

All this cooking has us needing a drink. Tim Herlihy, the United Staed Ambassador for Tullamore Dew will be on to talk about their latest innovative release: Tullamore D.E.W. Caribbean Rum Cask Finish. Available now in the U.S. market, the new variant consists of the brand’s signature Irish whiskey, Tullamore D.E.W. Original, finished in barrels previously used to age Demerara rum. Tullamore D.E.W. Caribbean Rum Cask Finish is inspired by the brand’s new global vision, “Beauty of Blend,” which champions the ways in which blends of all kinds impact our whiskey and our world for the better. In the 16th and 17th centuries, more than 50,000 Irish immigrants settled in the West Indies where a tradition of Irish whiskey distilling blended with local rum production and expanded the business globally. Reflecting this unique history, the product’s packaging is inspired by antique Caribbean trade maps, passport stamps and travel journals. Tullamore D.E.W. Caribbean Rum Cask Finish is a permanent addition to the Tullamore D.E.W. collection and joins an impressive innovation line-up, including the Tullamore D.E.W. Original, 12 Year Old Special Reserve, 15 Year Old Trilogy and 14 and 18 Year Old Single Malts as well as the seasonal Tullamore D.E.W. Cider Cask. What a treat!

Let’s top all of this food and drink greatness with a treat. This treat will be a little different as a robot will serve it to us. Joining us to talk about this technology advancement is Reis and Irvy’s’s Chaiman Nick Yates. Reis & Irvy’s a subsidiary franchise concept of Generation NEXT Franchise Brands, Inc. (OTCB: VEND) announced that the world’s first frozen yogurt robots will arrive at select grocery retailers in 16 US states this spring. The Reis & Irvy’s Frozen Yogurt Robots provide a fun and delicious experience to the shopper. Savvy grocers recognize the value of front-of-store services like Reis & Irvy’s frozen yogurt robots, offering shoppers a unique service and product. To check this concept out for yourself; it can be seen in Pennsylvania at The The Fresh Grocer Reis & Irvy’s- Philly. We hope they just serve frozen yogurt and a Blade Runner 2049 will not be needed to keep them under control 😉

Then to give us a peek of a blogger life we are happy to have in studio Chetna Macwan the founder of Spice Culture Blog, an Indian Cooking instructor, and award winning chef for her Butter Chicken where she recently won 2nd place at a cooking challenge at Rowan University. She believes in lots of fresh ingredients, lots of traditional Indian flavors/spices, but easier steps to cook. Her dream is to have a successful cooking show on a TV Network to allow audiences to see that Indian food is very flavorful and accessible. The program would show people that Indian food it is not as intimidating as it seems when steps are simplified, can be done without sacrificing flavor, and share how wonderful Indian food really is. Chetna is proud of her culture and the dishes offered, and we couldn’t be happier that she is joining us.

Small Bites Radio’s resident Vegan Chef Christina Martin of Cooking To Nourish will also be back in studio for some fun and food talk with us and our guests.

LIVE this Sunday, March 25th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio returns with another stellar lineup. Some might even say a ROCKING lineup. We welcome Paul Green A.K.A the Godfather of Rock School Education and founder of School of Rock which was portrayed in the Hollywood movie “School of Rock” played by Jack Black. Paul returns home to Philadelphia to launch the PGRA Philly Paul Green Rock Academy. Twenty years since he opened a modest music school in Philly based on his ardent belief that kids would rather learn by rocking on stage. Well Paul Green has returned home to teach performance-based music again in the city where he founded the original School of Rock en route to revolutionizing music education across the nation. But this time, the Godfather of Rock School Education is starting small – and keeping it that way – to create The Greatest Music School in the Country. Unlike the School of Rock model, Green’s new school is an audition-only “Master’s Program in Rock Music” for kids “with big dreams and the chops to back them up.” In other words, serious musicians who need to already have “the gift of rock” before they even meet the man who gave it to an entire generation. The Paul Green Rock Academy is located 6183 Ridge Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19128. Serious musicians, aged 10-18, who are interested in auditioning should write to info@paulgreenrock.com. Complete information at www.paulgreenrock.com.

Another well-known name around Philadelphia was Ben Franklin. We are happy to welcome Rae Katherine Eighmey the author of “Stirring the Pot with Benjamin Franklin: A Founding Father’s Culinary Adventures” from Smithsonian Books. Stirring the Pot with Benjamin Franklin is a remarkable culinary biography that explores Benjamin Franklin’s life through the foods he favored and served. It includes sixty-two kitchen-tested recipes based on period sources from colonial Boston and Philadelphia, England, and France, all deliciously adapted for the modern kitchen. Stirring the Pot with Benjamin Franklin conveys all of Franklin’s culinary adventures, demonstrating that Franklin’s love of food shaped not only his life but also the character of the young nation he helped build. Perfect for inquisitive cooks and history lovers alike, this book will inspire you to never think of Franklin in quite the same way again. Rae Katherine Eighmey is an award-winning author, food historian, and cook. She is the author of numerous books, including Abraham Lincoln in the Kitchen, Soda Shop Salvation, and Food Will Win the War.
