Guest Post: Steak and Himalayan Sea Salt by Chef’s Plate
We have guests in our kitchen! The team at Chef’s Plate have partnered with Unionville Mushrooms to showcase fresh Canadian mushroom varieties in mouthwatering meals!! Cremini and Shiitake mushrooms are on today’s menu…
Hello from the Culinary Team at Chef’s Plate! Chef’s Plate is a meal subscription service that delivers perfectly portioned ingredients with a dinner recipe card. We do all the meal prep and grocery shopping so you can get straight to the yummiest part: cooking and eating! We’re a strong believer that you don’t need fancy kitchen equipment or gourmet ingredients to create restaurant-quality meals. Each week we release 6 new and unique recipes for our customers that include 3 land protein dishes, 2 vegetarian dishes and 1 seafood dish. Right now, we’re only based in Ontario but hope to be offering our services outside of Ontario in the near future!
We have cooked with mushrooms in past recipes but it wasn’t until November that we really wanted to emphasize and let them be the star in our recipes. Fresh mushrooms are not only a versatile and simple ingredient to cook with but they are also jam packed with nutrients and TONS of flavour. For the whole month of November, one of our dishes each week will be showcasing a unique mushroom from our partner: Unionville Mushrooms.
Unionville Mushrooms is a family owned and run business since its inception in 1972. With their humble mushroom farm in Stouffville, Ontario, Pasquale Calitri and his son-in-law Ralph Auciello have since worked diligently to build the name of Unionville Mushrooms to the success it is today
We are strong advocates of supporting local businesses and this goes for our produce as well. Whenever possible, we always try to buy produce in Ontario. Why? Well, first of all, produce is fresher and gets to the end customer much quicker because it’s basically grown in your own backyard! Secondly, supporting present day farms will ensure that there will be local farms for future generations.
For delivery on November 23, we’ll be featuring a Steak and Himalayan Sea Salt with cremini and shiitake mushrooms as one of the side dishes. We thought we’d showcase those two mushrooms here!
Consuming cremini mushrooms produce niacin, an essential acid that reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s disease! Try out Shiitake and Creminis in our Steak and Himalayan Sea Salt Dish, available for delivery on November 23!
