If you’ve ever eaten at one of my cafés, restaurants or catering events, you know firsthand that I use only the freshest ingredients. But did you ever wonder where I get my food? Who grew the veggies? Where were the fish caught? Who raised the turkeys? Well, I’m a big believer in using locally grown and raised foods and my new video series “Keeping it Fresh” introduces those San Francisco Bay Area farmers, ranchers and distributors that help make truly memorable dining experiences.

Keeping It Fresh goes on-location, behind the scenes to show you where the food on your plate comes from. We go one-on-one with the people who have a true passion for providing, safe, fresh and healthy foods. We’ll show you what organic vegetables bring to the table, tell you why temperature matters when it comes to fish and explain the difference between pasture-raised and free-range turkeys. We also have cooking tips and recipe’s from Just Catering’s Executive Chef David Page.

Keeping it Fresh is as informative as it is entertaining. If you care about what you eat, check out Keeping It Fresh by clicking the links below.
