Can’t wait to welcome back Chef Philip Manganaro of Park Place Café & Restaurant in Borough of Merchantville, NJ. He’s nominated for the 2023 Restaurant and Chef Awards semifinalists for the James Beard Foundation Awards presented by Capital One in the category of Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic (DC, DE, MD, NJ, PA, VA) where the winners will be announced at the Lyric Opera of Chicago during the James Beard Restaurant and Chef Awards Ceremony on Monday, June 5. He also has a very entertaining documentary called ‘The King of Matsutaki Ridge’ being released soon about himself, his cooking, and the amazing wild foraging of ingredients that he does on his own to create the signature dishes that Chef Philip is world renowned for.

Talking more about wild foraging ingredients we are looking forward to seeing what is going on with Chef Viet Pham, owner of highly successful restaurant Pretty Bird and starring in Hulu ‘Chef Vs Wild’.

Sides include crinkle cut fries, Mexican street corn salad, and cider slaw. They currently have four locations and are working on opening additional restaurants across the US.

Then from Italy to New Jersey we will talk to Giovanni Quattrone the CEO of Paolo Rovagnati US Black Label Line of gourmet cold cut meats by Italian brand Rovagnati.

Another immigrant story brings Stacey Mei Yan Fong to discuss her project and new cookbook ’50 Pies 50 States: An Immigrant’s Love Letter to the United States Through Pie’ published by Voracious Hachette Book Group that can be PRE-ORDERED now and being released on June 13, 2023.
