Skillful and creative cookery with fruits and vegetables is a hallmark of all Bon Appétit chefs, but this year one chef in particular earned industry recognition for his mastery of produce.
Executive Chef Ted Mathesius of Adobe in Lehi, UT, was among eight honorees at the 2017 United Fresh Produce Excellence in Foodservice Awards in Chicago in June. Ted won in the category heralding excellence in Business in Industry.
Now in its 10th year, the program recognizes the innovative and influential use of fresh produce in the culinary arts. In a press release announcing this year’s honorees, United Fresh President and CEO Tom Stenzel wrote: “These eight winners are using fresh fruits and vegetables on their menus in very innovative ways. We are proud to honor them for the important role that they play in showcasing our industry, as well as introducing their customers to fruit and vegetable trends and new products.”
