Hey you, saucy taster, you!

I know it’s been a little while since I’ve blogged, but that’s for VERY good reason.

I’ve been busy whipping up brand-spanking-new

foodie adventures in Chestnut Hill!

It’s been so much fun (and such a privilege) to get to know the business owners and the community in this gorgeous section of Philadelphia. Especially now that everything is blooming—Chestnut Hill is celebrating its 20-year anniversary as Philadelphia’s Garden District—and it’s easy to see why…take a look!

Just stunning. I’ll be honest (as always!), the Chestnut Hill food scene has been off my radar for a little while…even though I have a real history there…it’s where I got engaged, and where my hubby is from. I’ve got to give my friend Jennifer Miller, fellow Femfessional and the Director of Marketing and Sales at 3000 BC Medi-Spa, credit for bringing my attention back to this GEM of Philadelphia!

If you’ve never checked out everything Chestnut Hill has to offer, or you haven’t been there in a while, trust me, you’re missing out! This ain’t your grandma’s Chestnut Hill anymore!

The neighborhood boasts gorgeous historical architecture, lush gardens, world-class dining, and chic shops and boutiques…for someone like me (and YOU) who loves to support small businesses and communities, this place is like paradise.

Chestnut Hill has undergone a real cultural renaissance in the last five or so years—new restaurants with daring global cuisine, art installations and concert series in the park as well as my new favorite place to get a taste of everything—the new modern farmer’s market, The Market at the Fareway.

Summer is the perfect time to get out stroll, and this is the perfect locale for a trip with your family, your girlfriends, or your work team. I hope you join me on one of my foodie adventures where I’ll be unearthing the hidden gems of beautiful Chestnut Hill. You’ll take a bite out of “the planet’s greatest sandwich” (seriously, it’s trademarked, it’s that good) and sample gourmet cheeses and so much more at the best cheese shop in town. We’ll check out the Market at the Fareway to thrill your taste buds with some REAL Jamaican jerk and other mouthwatering international fare. I’ll tempt you with melt-in-your-mouth sticky buns and artisan chocolate and we’ll swing by the Chestnut Hill Brewery to check out what’s on tap.
