2022's First Chef Collab! Sean Brock X Farmer's Fridge
For our very first Chef Collab of 2022, we’re bringing you a James Beard Award-winning ‘Best Chef’! Say hello to Sean Brock – four-time Outstanding Chef finalist, restaurateur, and the genius behind our all-new Butternut Squash Farro Risotto Bowl. Nashville fans – you may recognize him from one (or all) of three local restaurants: Joyland, The Continental, and Audrey!
Before laying roots down in the Music City, Sean spent over a decade in Charleston, South Carolina. There he explored Lowcountry cooking as the chef and partner of McCrady's restaurant. During his tenure, he became founding chef of Husk restaurant, located in Charleston, Nashville, Savannah & Greenville. In 2019, he made his move to Nashville and more recently has been exploring the future of Southern Food while working towards creating a healthier workspace.
Fellow foodies, you may also recognize Chef Brock’s name from his New York Times Bestseller cookbook, Heritage. Maybe you recognize him from hosting Anthony Bourdain’s Emmy Awarded show Mind of a Chef, or from his episode of the Netflix series, Chef’s Table. Wherever you know him from, it can be agreed on that he’s quite THE chef.
We’re thrilled to have a culinary creation by three-time ‘Rising Star Chef’ finalist Chef Brock added to our menu and can’t wait for you to try it. When we asked Chef’s inspiration behind creating this dish he shared, “I see first-hand how important these types of meals are, especially for parents of young children and those with busy, unpredictable schedules. I'm honored to contribute an exciting, healthy dish that is easy to cook quickly at home and made with ingredients you can actually trust. The Butternut Squash Farro Risotto Bowl is hearty, comforting, and satisfying – an ideal wintertime option for this time of year."
We couldn’t agree more with Chef Brock! This new bowl features housemade farro risotto with a butternut squash puree and is topped with roasted butternut squash and baby kale. It’s vegetarian, a great source of whole grains (thanks to the farro!), and provides a full serving of vegetables – what’s not to love? Cozy on up to a hearty bowl of the good stuff! Now available exclusively for delivery.
