On this week’s podcast we have chef Jamie Simpson. He is the chef liason at The Chef’s Garden, and the executive chef of the culinary vegetable institute. The Chef’s Garden has been delivering amazing produce and specialty products direct from the farm to chefs and restaurants for over 30 years. As many businesses have had to pivot due to Covid, The Chef’s Garden has also made some changes. While still offering their products to chefs, they now also offer home delivery boxes direct to the consumer.Jamie and I talk about this new program, as well as some of the other things they’re doing like co-packing, working on shelf stable ingredients, cooking for smaller private events and their new AirBNB accommodation. We also discuss the annual Roots conference that they host, and conferences in general.   =========================Jamie Simpson ========================= Jamie Simpson Instagram https://www.instagram.com/james_simpson86/The Chef's Garden Instagram https://www.instagram.com/the_chefs_garden_ohio/The Culinary Vegetable Institute Instagram https://www.instagram.com/culinaryvegetableinstitute/The Chef's Garden Website https://www.chefs-garden.com/The Chef's Garden Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/TheChefsGardenFarmer Lee Jones Instagram https://www.instagram.com/farmerleejones/================CONNECT WITH US ================Get the Chefs Without Restaurants Newsletter https://mailchi.mp/fe0d8a0cc7a6/chefs-without-restaurants-email-listCheck out our websites (they have different stuff) https://chefswithoutrestaurants.org/ & https://chefswithoutrestaurants.com/Like our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/chefswithoutrestaurantsJoin the private Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/chefswithoutrestaurantsJoin the conversation on Twitter https://twitter.com/ChefsWoRestosCheck our Insta pics https://www.instagram.com/chefswithoutrestaurants/Founder Chris Spear’s personal chef business Perfect Little Bites https://perfectlittlebites.com/Watch on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHXxixMxjf05XxUIbz6ER-QIf you want to support the show, our Venmo name is ChefWoRestos and can be found at https://venmo.com/ChefWoRestos.
