CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Martin’s Famous Potato Rolls and Bread announced recently it is presenting sponsorship of Season 2 of the “Beyond the Plate” podcast hosted by Andrew “Kappy” Kaplan.

“Beyond the Plate” has been recognized by RadioPublic as one of the standout Food Shows of 2017 as well as being listed as one of the “5 Things I’m Loving Right Now,” by Rachael Ray Every Day magazine.

“Beyond the Plate” consists of interviews Kaplan conducts in person with the world’s culinary elite to explore their journey into the food and hospitality industry, their career ups and downs, and the social impact chefs have made in their communities.

The Season 2 includes famous chefs such as Guy Fieri, Spike Mendelsohn and Robert Irvine. Kaplan’s production team uses the talents of his associates, Shant Petrossian, Ian Cohen, and Joel Yeaton, who have worked with him through the years in the food-television industry.

“Everyone loves a good story,” said Julie Martin, social media manager and granddaughter to the founders of Martin’s, which is based in Chambersburg, Pa. “People love to hear how my grandparents started baking in their small, one-car garage, and now, three generations later, we make the No. 1 branded hamburger roll in America. And we get inspired by other people’s stories too. After listening to some of the stories from Season One, we just knew we wanted to be a part of the ‘Beyond the Plate’ story.”

The majority of the second season episodes will feature Kaplan conducting interviews from the Loews Miami Beach Hotel during the 2018 Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival.

The team recorded audio interviews and three Facebook Live segments with some of the most popular and famous chefs in the United States. Each chef will also have a separate “Just the Plate” episode where they highlight a recipe.

Beyond the Plate episodes are available on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, Libsyn, Spotify or on the Beyond the Plate website at www.beyondthe
