Wishing You A Healthy 2016

With the New Year comes a new start - and those infamous New Year’s resolutions. Since many of your customers’ goals will be based around health-conscious eating and weight management, we wanted to offer some nutritious, plant-based recipe ideas that are sure to appeal at this time of year.

California Meets East Coast

If you were able to get out of the kitchen and travel to any chef conferences this past fall, you may have seen California Walnuts in action! Two of our favorite shows recently were StarChefs International Chefs Congress (ICC) in Brooklyn in October; and the International Foodservice Editorial Council (IFEC) Conference in Portland, Maine, in November.
