Mademoiselle Macaron – Mullica Hill, NJ

#SmallBitesRadio has been named #14 out of Top 30 Best Hospitality Shows on the planet for 2020. We are thrilled about the news.

Macaron’s are the name of the game here, but they also offer breads and other sweet treats. Had the pistachio macaron that couldn’t wait to eat before photo time, blueberry cupcake that the blueberries in the cupcake were so delicious and icing was nice as well, and a chocolate croissant that seemed like it had a chocolate bar in the middle of it with so much chocolate oozing out while eating it. They offer nice outdoor tables with music playing to be able to enjoy your snack.

#SmallBitesRadio was named #14 out of Top 30 Best Hospitality Shows on the planet for 2020. We are thrilled about the news. 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 returns on Sunday, August 23rd at 635pm with Ocean Eyes and a LOVELY guest lineup!

Billie Eilish and FINNEAS’s mom Maggie Baird will be joining us to talk about her vegan nonprofit Support + Feed. The vegan nonprofit Support + Feed teamed up with Amazon.com Amazon Prime Video vegan based show New Day New Chef directed by Emmys / Television Academy Award winner Eamonn McCrystal and hosted by celebrated journalist Jane Unchained News Jane Velez-Mitchell to highlight plant-based restaurants feeding those in need. New Day New Chef: Support + Feed Edition focuses on the organization’s work supplying food to children’s charities, homeless and domestic abuse shelters, food banks, family and senior centers by supporting vegan restaurants in Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia. Filmed largely with robotic cameras during the #COVID-19 outbreak, the show follows Maggie Baird, (actress, screenwriter, vegan, and mother of musicians Billie Eilish and Finneas, who are also vegan) on her journey to create Support + Feed. “New Day New Chef bringing these chefs and celebrities together is a great way to focus on these wonderful restaurants, and the nourishing and delicious food they are providing to those in need through Support + Feed,” said Baird. “A plant-based diet is so important for the health of our communities and our planet. I hope this show and these chefs will inspire people, because there is no better day to start, than today.” Special guest appearances include Billie Eilish, Finneas, Downton Abbey’s Lesley Nicol, the original “Bye Felicia” Angela Means-Kaaya, supermodel Joanna Krupa, influencer Kyle Krieger, Dynasty’s Elaine Hendrix, Lost’s Emilie de Ravin, and American Idol announcer and The Edge Show Mark Thompson.

Then we will welcome foraging Chef/Owner Philip Manganaro formerly working for Starr Restaurants, but broke out on his own and now is known for Park Place Café & Restaurant right down the street from Aunt Charlotte’s Candies in Merchantville NJ. The Philadelphia Inquirer’s #CraigLaBan called the restaurant “A BYOB Jersey gem hiding just minutes beyond the Ben Franklin Bridge”. His vision is to offer guest creative dishes to highlight foraged components, supported by specialty food sourced from around the world with a dynamic menu always changing to reflect the progression of the seasons. The vision has currently shifted from providing this extraordinary experience at a restaurant setting to now running Park Place at Home tasting menus. Just call 856-662-2200 and leave a message requesting a reservation where Chef Philip comes to you for an unforgettable culinary journey that he foraged himself as well as those sourced from far and wide.

White House Sub Shop at Hard Rock Casino – Atlantic City, NJ

#SmallBitesRadio has been named #14 out of Top 30 Best Hospitality Shows on the planet for 2020. We are thrilled about the news.

This is truly a match made in heaven. An iconic AC brand with White House Sub located inside one of the best casinos, and they make it easy to dine outside just steps to eat your meal with an ocean view and breeze.

I had the cheesesteak with American cheese and fried onion with an order of fries. The sandwich was delicious. I only wish a higher grade of french fry or fresh cut fries were used as it would really elevate the experience.

Sakura Japanese Steak House – Oaklyn, NJ

#SmallBitesRadio has been named #14 out of Top 30 Best Hospitality Shows on the planet for 2020. We are thrilled about the news.

If you want the convenience of a fast food experience, but you’re craving Japanese food or sushi and in a rush there isn’t a better place I can think of and not have to worry about #Covid then here. This location of Sakura is situated in a building that was formerly a Taco Bell. Simply call or go online to place your order in advance and tell them you will pick it up in the Drive-Thru window and it’s as easy as a normal fast-food destination with them handing it to you right in your car. I had the chicken teriyaki, chicken hibachi, and sushi selections of philly roll, eel, red snapper, and mackerel. Everything was good and above average at a reasonable price.

Had the grilled chicken with yellow rice and pigeon peas and a beef patty. Everything was delicious and the price couldn’t be beat. Really enjoyed it all. Service was quick and friendly. Would go back there for sure.

Topo Gigio Pizza – Bellmawr, NJ

Pizza and more pizza is the name of the game here. Old school traditional style neighborhood pizzeria shop and a pretty good pie to be had. With a decent price and extremely friendly service as well it’s easy to tell how they have been around so long. Fyi, when I visited it was a CASH ONLY establishment.

I don’t claim to be the famous James Pappas of Cheesesteak Adventure’s highlighted in The Philadelphia Inquirer and on blog Philly Grub, nor do I intend to eat close to 500 cheesesteaks in a little over one year’s time, but I’m from Philly so I know a good cheesesteak when I have one. With that being said, hidden in a tiny strip mall in an alleyway sits Chick’s Deli with a delicious cheesesteak. I ordered a mushroom cheesesteak with fried onions, American cheese, and ketchup. The roll held up beautifully and sandwich was delicious. Chick’s is definitely a good choice if you live or happen to be in the area.

Cilento Sandwich Company & Valente’s Italian Specialties – Haddonfield, NJ

Cilento Sandwich Company & Valente’s Italian Specialties – Haddonfield, NJ

Fyi – This place now has a new concept called Valente’s Cucina BYOB so the below is now longer valid, but they may keep many aspects of the past.

Sitting inside of Valente’s Italian Specialties the business Cilento Sandwich Company runs out of the same space. You order online from Valente’s Italian Specialties website, choose either pick-up or delivery and the time. The experience is seamless, service was very friendly, and portions are generous with reasonable prices.  I had the Traditional cheesesteak made of thin-sliced fresh beef and cheese served on half of a Sarcone’s long loaf and the Corrado sandwich which is chicken cutlet, fresh mozzarella, house-roasted peppers, extra virgin olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. Able to order from Valente’s Italian Specialties on the same order I decided to give them a try and had their anise pizzelles and the ricotta cannoli cream.

Small Bites Radio production update and return to air date

Small Bites Radio production update and return to air date

Hello again friend of Small Bites Radio,

All I can say is WOW. What a wild and crazy time this year has been. I know nothing is anywhere close to the same as it was before or where we want it to be in any manner, but my only hope is that you, your family, and friends are all healthy and safe.

You are probably asking yourself what could we have to say that you would want to know about? The answer is that Donato and I have decided to give this rinky dink program and distraction from life for an hour every other Sunday a try again provided positive trends continue in our area. Our anticipated return to broadcast is currently Sunday, August 9th with just the crew appearing giving updates on that episode.

After August 9th feel free to send us any guest or segment idea suggestions our way at smallbitesradio@gmail.com and we’ll schedule accordingly. Please be aware the biggest change regarding the program is that we will NOT have any in-studio guests until further notice. All appearances and segments will be prerecorded or live call-in. Only Donato and I will be in-studio. This isn’t our preferred method but is in the best interest of safety. Hopefully this rule will be able to change sooner rather than later.

If you are interested in sending a request to schedule something, PLEASE send it in a email to smallbitesradio@gmail.com and DO NOT reply to this post or send to our social media accounts otherwise it will probably get lost in the shuffle and threads. People have been asking daily to book segments so please be patient with any correspondence to us or delays in our response.

We were lucky enough to be named one of the best Hospitality shows on the planet for 2020 the exact year that the entire hospitality industry has hit rock bottom and has more uncertainty than ever. With that in mind we are aiming to be named 2021’s Top Thing that others wish would have disappeared along with the pandemic. I have a good feeling we can accomplish this with our usual style of lazy interviewing and low budget production. Fingers Crossed 😉

Thank you and looking forward to working and talking with everyone again soon. If you have any questions or need anything else just us know!
