Demo
Of Ingredients, Story Telling and Menu Crafting: How to Showcase Value Around Plants
(The Culinary Institute of America)
One of the big challenges of menuing plant-forward dishes is that many consumers still equate value with the size and amount of animal protein on a plate. Yet plant-forward cooking offers alternative paradigms to convey value -- which will unquestionably be top-of-mind for diners as they begin eating outside of the home again. Watch the session.

Featuring:
  • Anne E. McBride, PhD (deputy director, Torribera Mediterranean Center)
  • Stephanie Audet (owner, Senhor Uva, Lisbon, Portugal)
  • Abra Berens (chef, Granor Farm, Galien, Mich.)
  • Amanda Cohen (chef-owner, Dirt Candy and Lekka Burger, New York, N.Y.)

Tasting
Carrots as a Case Study in Plant-Forward Success: From Sides to the Main Event
(CIADigitalMedia)
Farm-to-table doesn't get any fresher or more seasonal than when your farmer is also your chef. Abra Berens of Granor Farm in Galien, Mich., has played both roles over the course of her career, giving her an intimate knowledge of vegetables from soil to plate, and every step in between. In this culinary demonstration, Berens will show how she transforms roasted carrots into successively larger -- and more profitable -- entrees.
