joe's kitchen

Featured Producer: Joe Buley of Joe's Kitchen at Screamin' Ridge Farm

Finding inspiration from memories of his grandmother's busy kitchen and his mom's love of cooking, Joe Buley trained as a restaurant chef and managed restaurants for 20 years before moving to Vermont and starting Screamin' Ridge Farm. He now creates delicious soups, stocks, and sauces in his Montpelier kitchen using fresh, organic produce and herbs from the farm. As Joe states on his website, "our focus is on creating great-tasting, healthy food using primarily local ingredients cultivated sustainably." Find Joe's Kitchen chimichurri, a flavorful sauce made from parsley, oregano, and garlic, in your Omnivore packages this week--it's great on just about anything!

Eat This First: Mesclun and mini onions. Mini onions are a great thing to throw on the grill, as are zucchini/squash and even napa cabbage wedges!

Storage Tip: Store greens with a paper towel in the bag to absorb excess moisture and prevent rotting, and soak in cold water to refresh if the leaves start to wilt before you're able to use them.

Chimichurri and steak is a classic combination, but try this link for 20 other ways to use chimichurri.
