This weekend on FYI Philly, we savor some new options in fine dining and taste flavors from around the world! We meet a local jeweler creating magic with sparkling metals, minerals and stones, then visit a maker's paradise in South Philadelphia! Plus, we check out some nature and fun in the Brandywine Valley.
