For a lot of Eagles fans, football means family. Watching the games together, passing your love of a team to your kids and creating your very own game day traditions. The Eagles’ family is a big one - we’ve all heard a “GO BIRDS” if we’re outside of the city proudly wearing our Eagles Green. To that end Derrick is adding an ‘f’ to his list this week - it’s still food, football and fun but he’s coming in with family in this episode.
Derrick interviews three guests who embody all of the above. Tommi Vincent is an entrepreneur, mother, and grandmother. She’s a podcaster, a chef and co-founder and COO of Vincent Country, “ which pays homage to the accomplishments and the strength of the Black family unit and is considered as its own country.” Tommi is also the wife of Eagle’s legend Troy Vincent. Tommi shares stories of the importance of food in her family and why sitting down for a meal all together is one of the highlights of her day.
Brandon and Carlyne Graham are raising two kids with a simple food rule: “you at least have to try it.” Then and only then can you decide you don’t like it. While Brandon was recovering at home he told Derrick about Carlyne’s specialties, who does most of the cooking and how his newer diet changed the way the family eats. Or and Carlyne dishes on what Brandon cooked for her when they were dating, but doesn’t cook anymore.
Colleen Wolfe and Ross Tucker gather around the family table with only one topic to discuss - which holiday has the best food.
