This Sunday, August 13th at 635pm Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio has a great lineup. We welcome International Award Winning magician Greg Frewin. Greg Frewin is currently ranked as The International Grand Champion of Magic, having won every major award offered within the magic community. He has placed first in numerous magic competitions including the IBM – International Brotherhood of Magicians the The Society of American Magicians the Canadian Association of Magicians and the Federation Internationale Society of Magique—widely regarded as the Olympics of magic. His winning streak recently culminated with his win of the Magician of the Year award at the World Magic awards, effectively ranking him as the world’s top illusionist. In his fifteen-year professional career Frewin has performed live all over the world, from Japan to Monte Carlo, cruise ships on the high seas to the Vegas Strip. He currently performs sold out shows at one of the top places when you Visit Niagara, Ontario attractions; the Greg Frewin Theatre and Canada is celebrating Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation. Frewin has also appeared on over 35 television programs including NBC’s World’s Greatest Magic, ABC Television Network’s Champions of Magic and his own three-part CBC Toronto special Magic Man: Home for the Holidays. It is a must see show!!!!

When in the area of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, Canada be sure to also stop by Bird Kingdom during your Niagara Falls Tourism. We will talk to Hayley Humphries a Senior Animal Care Supervisor at Bird Kingdom Niagara Falls. At Bird Kingdom be amazed as you enter the World’s Largest Indoor Aviary, where exotic colourful birds fly freely in the multi-level rainforest. Wander on the pathway that begins at the aviary’s top level, taking you behind the magnificent waterfall and down to the jungle floor. Lorikeet Landing provides an unforgettable experience where you can feed and interact with playful lorikeet birds. Within the jungle lies a rare Javanese House from the 1800s, the only of its kind in all of North America. This architectural masterpiece is entirely hand carved solid teak and was incredibly constructed without nails.

All this has me thirsty and hungry. We will also be joined in studio with Chris Dougherty Director of Sales at Downeast Cider House for the Mid Atlantic region. Downeast Cider House was founded by Ross Brockman and Tyler Mosher during their senior year of college. after a considerable amount of time spent on the family orchard, an affinity for farm-fresh apple products was born. meanwhile, at school, the guys could always be found studying. whether it was deep into a weekend night, weds/thur specials at the local library, or perhaps a casual “sunday fun-day study-day,” the fellas were relentlessly toiling away, focused primarily on the classic works of professor busch and his famous theories on the smooth-cold continuum, copper-top revision. Where others have used juice from concentrate, “natural flavorings,” “essences,” artificial sweeteners, and an endless list of excuses, downeast cider house has a firmly established policy of NO SHORTCUTS. no matter the cost to them, they are fully committed to using only fresh-pressed juices and pure, natural ingredients in our cider. when it comes to flavor, there’s no substitute for the best, and that’s what they stand by: simple, honest, authentic. Not to be overlooked, Tom Bera of Philly Blind Pig BBQ will be in studio as well and who knows what delicious food he will be bringing us to try this time.

Then to have us want to get away again, we have Vanessa Rivers of Surf with Vanessa and Glitter&Mud Travel and Rebecca van Dijk of Becky van Dijk Travel the founders of We Are Travel Girls. We Are Travel Girls as the go to site for travel tips, travel quotes and female travel inspiration for any travel articles that you may be working on! It was founded in June 2016 with the dream of creating a top travel site to help promote female travel bloggers, share travel tips and stories, and connect female travelers around the globe. They accept submissions from female travellers and publish 5 stories per week, hold monthly We Are Travel Girls Meet Ups in different cities around the world, publish monthly interviews featuring inspirational women, and we feature thousands of female travel girls from around the globe on our very popular Instagram page WeAreTravelGirls.

This Sunday will also be the in studio debut of Chef Christina Martin of Cooking To Nourish and the recent Nourish on the Go #Vegan mobile cart. Chef Christina has joined Small Bites to give us Vegan Recipes News and why to Eat Drink Vegan.

Actor John DiRenzo will also be helping in studio with his valuable insight and experience in the culinary world.

Craving your weekly fix of Small Bites with Glenn Gross and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio? Don’t fret my friend because this Sunday, August 6th at 635pm we have a great show lineup for you. Joining us in studio will be #Chef Ed Crochet of Rat’s Restaurant at Grounds For Sculpture. Philadelphia’s renowned Starr Events is pleased to announce that Ed Crochet has been named Executive Chef at Rat’s Restaurant at Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ. Crochet will also oversee all of Grounds For Sculpture’s food services in his new role.

A graduate of L’Academie de Cuisine Culinary School, Crochet worked in the kitchens of Tom Colicchio’s Crafted Hospitality before joining the Starr Restaurants team at Storico at the New-York Historical Society. He brings his vast culinary experience to Rat’s, a French-focused restaurant famous for its unique setting within the 42-acre sculpture park. Rat’s was conceptually designed to be reminiscent of Claude Monet’s beloved Giverny by sculptor Seward Johnson. It is named after the gregarious character “Ratty,” from Kenneth Grahame’s famed children’s story, The Wind in the Willows. The restaurant patio, noted for its sweeping views and al fresco dining, overlooks a lily pond framed by weeping willows, and the “Monet bridge.”

Chef Crochet’s quickly rose through the ranks from line cook to sous chef, executive sous chef, chef de cuisine, and finally to Executive Chef. His strong kitchen management skills and leadership have been perfected at renowned New York City cultural landmarks, including Carnegie Hall and Citadel. Today, Ed looks to Italy for cooking inspiration. He travels there frequently to inspire his use of hyper-seasonal ingredients and simple executions of his vegetable-forward dishes. Wow, we can’t wait.

Then we welcome Job Itzkowitz the Executive Director of Old City District in studio to talk about Old City Eats Thursday Specials. Old City, Philadelphia showcases its thriving dining scene with the return of #OldCityEats!

More than a book of recipes, Matt explores how the marriage of meat, cooking method, and sauce varies from place to place based on history and culture, climate, available ingredients and wood, and always the closely-guarded, passed-down secrets followed like scripture.

Joe’s Steaks & Soda Shop – 6030 Torresdale Ave, Philadelphia, PA

Joe’s Steaks & Soda Shop – 6030 Torresdale Ave, Philadelphia, PA

I have enjoyed eating at this location even when it was called “Chinks Steaks”. The milkshakes are always delicious and the steaks are hearty, fresh, and decent in taste. They may have opened a second location in Fishtown, but the atmosphere here is reason enough to make this location the place to visit. Consumed on this visit was cheesesteak with American and fried onions, old bay crinkle cut fries, and milkshake special Orange Creamsicle. The meal was yummy on all fronts.
