Shopping for the Holidays?
From the Kitchen of the CEO:
When I joined Greensbury a couple months ago, I already knew we sold the highest quality proteins available anywhere online or offline. But what I've learned is that people are looking for more than just organic grass-fed beef or organic chicken--they are looking for healthy, great tasting meals that are easy to make.
So I began seeking out local chefs working in New York City to begin developing recipes based on the proteins we sell. One of those chefs is Thomas Kaylor who has worked in some of the best restaurants in the country including Thomas Keller's Per Se. I charged Thomas (Kaylor) with putting together a variety of recipes using Greensbury proteins and looked forward to testing some of his creations.
As fate we would have it, as I began getting to know Thomas we also had the opportunity to bring in some amazing wild caught lobster tails already split in the shell. I moved the lobster tails to the top of Thomas' list and the first thing he came back with is the lobster roll recipe below. I made the lobster rolls for Mother's Day and my entire family loved them--including my 8 year old daughter and 11 year old son! My only regret is that I didn't have enough lobster to make more. It took me no more than 20 minutes, start to finish, to have the lobster rolls on the plate and all the other ingredients are things I already had in my kitchen and herb garden.
For dessert I served an Apple Pie from Elegant Farmer that we also just began offering. As a self-professed pie snob, who would rather make from scratch than buy pre-made, I can honestly say Elegant Farmer's pie is easily one of the best I've ever tasted (including homemade). I won't stop making my own pies, but you can bet that I'll be coming back to this one before too long.
If you're looking for ideas for what to serve for Memorial Day, or anytime this summer, consider trying the lobster rolls and apple pie.
