Well…we finally did it! We started a mushroom farm. Expect to see more mushroom products at our markets like soups, filled pastas, and pizzas. We will actually sell mushrooms at the Pike and Rose and Rose Park Farmer’s Markets. Everything we sell is either grown on organic substrate or foraged locally. Follow us at rc_mushroom_co.

I had milkweed buds for the first time a couple weeks ago….all I can say is if you haven’t tried them you need to. So many potential uses (capers, pickles, fried, kimchi). I seared hard then deglazed for some steam action. They need to be fully cooked. Brown butter and finish with some extra salt to tickle your taste buds.

The average mushroom consumption in Japan is about 3oz a day per person. The average mushroom consumption in the USA is about 4lbs a year. Interestingly enough, the mushrooms generally consumed in the USA are carcinogenic while the mushrooms popular in Japan are sought out for health their benefits (in addition to flavor). I’m not saying that’s why we rank so low in life expectancy and they rank so high, but the fact that we always seem to find a way to consume poison probably doesn’t help.

Tagliare = to cut. This is what Tagliatelle production looks like. It starts with cracking and seperating eggs. Kneading the dough to incorporate air. Resting the dough. Making a pasta sheet slowly, while air drying the pasta just the right amount. Hand cutting the pasta. Portioning. Packaging….it’s a long process, but Tag is a classic for a reason.

Being a chef is lot like being a coach. It doesn’t get talked about much but that is often what your job becomes - recruiting, motivating, and developing the best team. One of the best parts of being a chef is watching your team grow. I tell everyone the same story about Marvin. I remember when he was about 15, washing dishes at the restaurant I was cheffing at. When it was time to bring in our delivery one day, I see him sling 100lbs of flour on his back and carry a 75lb bag of cabbage in his other hand and then proceed to walk walk down the stairs like it was nothing. Pound for pound, this skinny kid was the strongest person in that kitchen, and that was a tough kitchen! So proud to have him here with us now. We have a small team, but every player is an all star.
