The Chef's Garden

Lifestyle

By: Candice Kumai

When it comes to aesthetics and only the most beautiful food imagery where “the eyes eat first,” you better believe this is my top priority (especially when coming from a family of artists and farmers). After writing my second darling cookbook, “Cook Yourself Sexy” and hosting a few pop-up dinners across NYC and LA;  I continued to keep the caliber of my food photography and food styling to my gold standard thanks to the lovely and hard-working family of farmers at  The Chef’s Garden .

While recipe-developing and shooting Cook Yourself Sexy, I used an abundance of produce from the Chef’s Garden. When sourcing products, the Chef’s Garden is always the most reliable and has the largest variety of delicate and unique products.

After almost ten years of meeting the Lee family in Milan, Ohio, Farmer Lee Jones continued to share his genuine kindness and fruits of his labor by sharing his very best produce with me for many of my past cookbook shoots, dinner parties & events.

The Chefs Garden’s micro greens, squash blossoms, baby kale and array of fabulous edible flowers help to make any dish an outstanding work of art. Their crops always make it to my most decadent and gorgeous creations, adding that final CK touch of finesse.

The Chef’s Garden is now available for you for home delivery. It’s time for you to support your local farmer who has been practicing organic and sustainable farming for decades. Cooking with their fine products, and showcasing the fruits of their labor shows our appreciation and support for the farmer.

After all,  there is absolutely nothing more comforting than a home-cooked farm-to-table meal. With love xx ck
