Featured Question

Chef Patrick Mitchell of Ben E. Keith Foods
Smoothies, kombucha, craft ginger ales and root beers…non-alcoholic drinks are a growing menu segment. Which fruit and/or vegetable drinks do you suggest?

I offer functional beverages that are made with whole fruits and vegetables as well as herbs and spices. Some of my favorites include turmeric, honey, berries, kale, celery juice, and pureed beets for vibrant color.

Root vegetables like beets and carrots are healthy and delicious. How do you prepare them to make them more craveable and Instagram-worthy?

Roasting is the key to bringing out root vegetables’ inherent sweetness. Try glazing them with ingredients like brown sugar, honey, pomegranate molasses, or Hoisin sauce.

What is your favorite RSS salad blend? What recipes do you serve using this item?

I love the versatility of RSS Urban Blend. It contains baby red chard, wild arugula, and baby kale. This mixture can work as a flavorful salad, as a sautéed side dish, or be used in smoothies and other breakfast items.
