Fresh local food with Chef James Bolus!

James Bolus mushrooms

James Bolus, executive chef at The Wandering Hen Cafe and Market, did a fabulous presentation on Thursday, March 7th at Empowered Eating Group at the Greenhouse Project at Nay Aug Park in Scranton, PA. He shared his vision with us for healthy, local fare and his efforts to serve delicious food while reducing waste and using sustainable practices. We were able to sample his mushroom veggie burger served on crostini and topped with homemade tomato jam, fresh pea and beet microgreens, and crispy, dehydrated onions. He was generous to share this fantastic, easy, and affordable recipe with us!
