About the Recipe: This is a quick and easy recipe I love to make us for lunch or for a light supper.
About the Chef: I was born in San Diego and attended USD before traveling to over 60 countries and continuing my graduate education back in the U.S. with Cornell University and the Living Light Culinary Arts Institute. I am now the co-owner of the Rancho Santa Fe Farmers Market, a longevity researcher, nutritional and motivational speaker, and documentary filmmaker. My passion is really in creating recipes from locally sourced seasonal foods, more often than not from our own property, and then sharing them with friends and family. I am a certified culinary arts chef who specializes in raw food and plant-based food preparation. My fiance Michael and I are certified producers who grow over 50 varieties of fruit, nuts, vegetables, and greens on our property.
