Bob explores the local food scene and cultural imperatives behind Jewish delicacies for the Exponent's Philacatessen blog. 

After a career in corporate public relations and, before that, reporting and editing for daily and weekly newspapers, he enjoys retirement by scouring farmers markets, the Reading Terminal Market, and the best bakeries, delis, specialty food shops and ethnic markets he can find throughout the region. 
Outside of his contributions to Philacatessen, since 2006 has been posting his Roberts Market Report, a blog devoted to area farmers markets.
When he’s not thinking about, writing about, buying, cooking or consuming good things to eat, he’s sitting on his Fairmount stoop trying to bring down real estate values.
