D and L Coffee Service Inc. presents the #1 listed “Food Radio show Philadelphia”, Small Bites with Donato Marino and Derek Timm ofBluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio this Sunday, January 13th at 635pm with a great lineup!

We are thrilled to welcome iconic Philadelphia broadcaster Marilyn Russellof 98.1 WOGL FM who hosts Marilyn Russell in the Morning from 5:30-9am and is also host of popular food podcast EatDrinkAndBeMarilyn. Marilyn who is a La Salle Universityalum, has worked on the The Preston & Steve Show on 93.3 WMMR PhiladelphiaWXPN102.9 WMGK, and BEN FM. She has had career highs and lows, but the lowest point of her career certainly had to be working on the same production as the Small Bites crew 😉Marilyn was a VIP during Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back#24HoursFOxepisode of Shanty on 19ththat recently aired on FOX 29. She will talk about the experience and her thoughts on the episode.

Then adding more of a Gordon Ramsay flavor to the show, we are happy to talk to Chef Heather Williams a Season 16 runner up and a contestant of the current season 18 of Hell’s Kitchen. The 18th season of Hell’s Kitchen airs Fridays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Gordon Ramsay’s hit cooking competition series returns with a twist: pitting veteran contestants against rookies. For the first time in the show’s history, eight accomplished chefs who have competed in previous seasons – and lost – will be brought back for a shot at redemption and tested like never before, as they go up against eight ambitious rookies. Each week, the chefs will be put through a series of grueling culinary challenges and dinner services to prove to Chef Ramsay they have what it takes to win a life-changing grand prize: a position at the world’s first Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen Las Vegas at Caesars Palace inVisit Las Vegas and $250,000.

Closer to home, we are excited to chat with Mike Traud who is the Drexel University – Center for Food and Hospitality Management Program Director. On Sunday, March 10 and Monday, March 11, Drexel University’s annual Philly Chef Conference will return to University City, drawing top-level culinary and hospitality talent from around the world to Philadelphia. Tickets for all events will go on sale the same day that the full agenda is posted online: Wednesday, January 16 at 12 noon. “Our annual Chef’s Conference is the centerpiece of our year-round programming, bringing the best and brightest in the culinary world right to our students here in Philadelphia,” says Traud, JD, Ed.D, himself an alum of Vetri under Marc Vetri and Zeppoli under Joey Baldino. “This year’s line-up is our most robust yet, and we can’t wait to welcome these luminaries to Philadelphia and share their talents with our students – and our city’s thriving restaurant culture with them.” The annual Philly Chef Conference regularly sells out, and 2019 tickets are limited, so guests are encouraged to purchase theirs at once, to guarantee their seat at the proverbial table. A current list of participants is available at the bottom of this post.

Now, do you struggle finding the perfect gift for those you can’t personally deliver it to? Well we will be joined by Denise Fuchs the founder and CEO ofBloombaes because Bloombaes was sparked by a quest to make long distance gift giving a little more special. When she couldn’t find anything online beyond the gift delivery mainstays – flowers, gift cards, gourmet baskets, etc. – she decided take her favorite parts of those classics and create something new. The result was a handmade bouquet of chocolate truffles. It is beautiful, delicious, and thoughtful. A Bloombae is a handcrafted chocolate bouquet. It’s a colorful combination of melt-in-your-mouth chocolate truffles and keepsake sola wood flowers, wrapped in smooth floral sheeting, and most importantly – made with love.

La Cabana Del Tio Tom III – Vineland, NJ

La Cabana Del Tio Tom III – Vineland, NJ

Oh man, pork is such a delicious treat, and La Cabana Del Tio Tom III is doing it right. I have been surprised this type of food hasn’t caught on more mainstream, but here, a few spots in Camden, and a few in North Philly really do this type of cuisine well. Had the pork stew with yellow rice and peas, and chopped roasted pork with white rice. Topping both of them with the house made hot sauce and washing it all down with Snapple Mango Madness was heavenly.

DAVID & SONS 322 BBQ – Mullica Hill, NJ

DAVID & SONS 322 BBQ – Mullica Hill, NJ

This place is truly a BBQ gem in South Jersey. By far the best overall meal of BBQ I’ve had in quite some time in South Jersey. The service was top notch, prices reasonable, and the menu is extremely varied compared to a traditional BBQ restaurant. If you are in the area, I highly recommend them. While there I had the Boyland Shirley Temple which went down smooth, triple smoked candied bacon that was AWESOME, bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers, truffled cauliflower gratin, grilled asparagus, and a full rack of ribs. Just a warning though, the parking lot is extremely tiny and not easy to back out of if all spots are full.

Vietnam Palace – Philadelphia, PA

Vietnam Palace – Philadelphia, PA

Such a great place in Philadelphia’s Chinatown district. I had the shrimp & pork rolls with bean sprout, lettuce, mint leaves, rice vermicelli wrapped in fresh rice paper and their salt-battered soft shell crabs lightly battered with salt, pepper & garlic seasonings. Both were delicious.

Joe’s Peking Duck House – Marlton, NJ

Joe’s Peking Duck House – Marlton, NJ

This place is an absolute gem in South Jersey. One of the best Chinese restaurants outside of Chinatown Philadelphia. BEWARE though as they are CASH only. I didn’t know this until the check was served, but they do have an ATM right in the restaurant. Everything I had here was fabulous and delicious. I highly recommend them and their prices are extremely reasonable for the quality that you receive compared to the prices of comparable dishes in Chinatown restaurants. Pictured below is the wonton noodle soup, pan fried dumplings, duck roll, honey roasted pork, Peking duck, pork fried rice, and clams in black bean sauce.
