WHAT WE EAT AND HOW IT IS GROWN INTIMATELY AFFECTS OUR HEALTH AND THE WELL-BEING OF THE WORLD.
Wise words from the Founder of American Flatbread Pizza Company in Waitsfield, Vermont, George Schenk. As one of the first to speak out about the importance of food integrity and sustainability, he also happens to make the best wood-fired pizza in America. No meal is complete without a healthy serving of the one salad on the menu. This is a ginger forward, Asian-inspired, best with a mix of farmer's market or locally grown mess of mesclun. The mixture of greens creates tons of texture and tastes: think a mix of spicy mustard greens, peppery arugula, or a bit of bitterness from curly endive leaves or radicchio. One taste of the dressing and the leftovers may just make it on to a baking tray of roasted veggies, or onto the sides of bread for a spread for paninis. Some, including my husband, use it as a stand alone elixir that just tastes so darn good straight from a spoon.
