Chef Check In
Over the Spring and Summer, we checked in with some of the chefs whose recipes are featured on our website. We examined how their lives, and careers, had changed since their recipe’s debut. We hope you enjoyed these updates, and thought you’d want to revisit some of these amazing original creations.

Last month, we caught up with Richard and Denise MacDonald, who were some of the first Ambrosia orchardists. Check out their story here, and stay tuned for more news from the farmers…- CLICK HERE
