Bonus recipe time! Chef Jamie Simpson of The Chef’s Garden in Cleveland was generous enough to share with us this amazing fall recipe, great for Thanksgiving or even for a lazy Sunday.
From Alex: I met Jamie Simpson while touring the “Chefs Garden” ran by farmer Lee Jones. The Chef’s Garden is really a work of art, combining farming, cooking, education, and sustainability into one masterful operation. After visiting the Culinary Vegetable Institute on Jones’ campus I got a chance to see his greenhouse. The greenhouse was an impressive sight but what was even more of a surprise was the chef cooking us up a nice lunch. This was Chef Jamie Simpson from Charleston, South Carolina. Several dishes were served, each one boasting the creative talent of this young chef. I asked Jamie to share to his Squash Blossom recipe with us and he agreed. Try out this recipe for yourself – you won’t be disappointed!
