One of our favorite simple pleasures is pears paired with Brie. Chef Greg’s rustic tart takes those flavors to a fantastic new level, made even better with toasted walnuts, apricot jam and a flakey butter crust. Best served warm, this free-form galette makes a stunning dessert or brunch centerpiece during the holidays.
A wonderful melting cheese, Raclette is a semi-hard, cows’ milk cheese that’s made on both sides of the French and Swiss Alps. Famous in Europe, it’s often melted over potatoes and roasted veggies. Instead of grating it, Chef Greg suggests crumbling it. Try it in Chef Greg’s recipe for Smashed Potatoes with Raclette Cheese!
Try this unique twist on the classic holiday staple for Thanksgiving! These smashed potatoes are sure to become a new family tradition. Simply roast until soft, then smash! Finish with your favorite toppings for a fun cross between baked and mashed potatoes. We recommend them with bacon, shallots and raclette, a cheese from Switzerland traditionally melted until browned and piping hot.
Mise en place – it’s more than just a cooking method, it’s a way of life. The French phrase (pronounced meez ahn plas) is Chef Greg’s motto and means “everything in place.” The key is to read recipe instructions and gather and prep all of your ingredients beforehand, and place them within easy reach before starting a recipe. Practicing “mise en place” is the simplest way to execute a recipe. Being prepared by having everything at the ready can help reduce new recipe anxiety and ensure recipe success!
Chef Greg’s Wild Mushroom & Beef Stroganoff takes classic stroganoff to the next level with wild Oregon mushrooms. This truly memorable meal uses flat iron steak, or another beef steak of your choosing. You can also leave out the meat for an equally satisfying vegetarian meal – just simply substitute mushroom or vegetable stock in place of beef stock. It’s comfort food at its finest!
Pumpkin may be the most popular autumn flavor, but it has nothing on the rich taste of spiced apple cider. Made by our artisan chef, Chef Greg, this recipe incorporates the fantastic fall flavors of apple cider into baked doughnuts. Why bake, not fry? It’s healthier, easier and less messy than frying—and they taste great! They disappear fast, so consider making a double batch!
Beans, bacon, sausage and brisket – you’ll go crazy for this recipe! Created by Chef Greg, this versatile dish belongs in its own comfort food category to be made again and again. You can try it with ground beef or switch up the sausage and bean varieties for endless combinations.
