Episode 154 – Bite 4 The Fight / Chef Robert Irvine

Recently, we were honored to host a live show as part of the Bite 4 The Fight food festival, a fundraiser held in honor of Makenna Ann Massi to help raise funds for families facing pediatric cancer. The Fight On Makenna Foundation was created by the Massi family to honor Makenna’s memory, and at the first annual Bite 4 The Fight festival, we were able to taste some of the best food that the Philadelphia area has to offer. During our show, we were joined by Chef Robert Irvine, host of the hit Food Network show ‘Restaurant Impossible’ and author of the “Family Table” cookbook.

Episode 153 – Philadelphia Distilling

We’re not just about food here on Jawn Appetit… on this episode, we take a trip to Philadelphia Distilling to sample some Bluecoat American Gin as well as their other amazing spirits. We also visited Beyonce’s favorite bakery, and explain how tailgating got a lot easier for Eagles fans.

Episode 152 – La Calaca Feliz

Our trip around the Fairmount section of Philadelphia continues as we made a stop at La Calaca Feliz to see if their exceptional Yelp, Google and TripAdvisor reviews told the whole story. We also give kudos to Pizzeria Beddia for another amazing honor and wonder if all of the calories in a mukbang are really worth it…

Episode 151 – Chef Todd Lewis / Chef Kurt Evans

We recently had a chance to partner with Eastern State Penitentiary for their Hidden Lives Illuminated program to discuss the intersection of food and the criminal justice system. In our first interview, we sat down with Chef Todd Lewis, Director of the Culinary Arts Program at the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections. And for our second interview, we talked with Chef Kurt Evans, the culinary advisor for the Drive Change program in Brooklyn, NY and the founder of the End Mass Incarceration Dinner series.
