Robert Schueller of Melissa’s (our resident Prince of Produce) is presenting two talks on the Culinary Stage in the OC Promenade on Opening Day at the 2021 OC Fair. On the menu are California Specialty Fruit Crops and California Specialty Vegetable Crops. Also a preview of the always eagerly anticipated upcoming Hatch Chile season which just started.
Robert shares a highlighted version of his California Specialty Fruit Crops engaging presentation with us as well as the preview of the Hatch Chile season.
“Melissa’s kicks off Hatch Pepper season with an all-new Melissa’s Hatch Pepper Cookbook, a compilation of delicious recipes from the Melissa’s Corporate Chefs Team. These recipes have been collected over several seasons during their annual Hatch Pepper promotional campaigns. The recipes are divided into nine groups: Appetizers, Salads, Sides, Drinks, Condiments, etc., demonstrating the versatility of this unique pepper variety with more than one-hundred recipes. There are Hatch dishes for every meal of the day and for every culinary skillset from the novice cook to the serious chef.”
Melissa’s Produce will be featured in many cooking demonstrations on the Main Stage in the OC Promenade, the site of the major culinary happenings. For the run of The Fair they will be showcased in the Rare Fruit Growers exhibit located in the Centennial Farms area.
