A Note from the Chef

"Certain flavors remind me of the holidays and I choose recipes that do just that, with a twist to give a little elevation to the presentation and taste-buds. Sweet potatoes were always my go to as a kid. I would pick them over the mashed potatoes every time. The sweetness is a perfect accompaniment for the earthy Thanksgiving day turkey."  - Seattle Chef Dylan
