We recently learned of brining chicken in pickle brine from Chef Richard DeShantz of the Richard DeShantz Restaurant Group in Pittsburgh. The flavor imbued from this technique provides a rich and layered profile to the finished product that we thought it would be perfect for chicken wings - we were right! Utilizing McClures Spicy Pickles, we brined the chicken in the pickle brine and chopped up the pickle spears for the blue cheese remoulade. Spicy, salty, creamy and cheesy, these chicken wing are layered with flavor. Artisan Ingredient Used: McClure's Spicy Pickle Spears
Peaches. Sweet + juicy with just a touch of acidity. Is there a more perfect stone fruit? We took these seasonal delicacies, halved them and threw them on the grill before topping them with a dollop of burrata and a chili-infused peach vinaigrette made using Sparrow Lane's California Peach Vinegar. Because traditional fruit salads are so 2014. Artisan Ingredient Used: Sparrow Lane California Peach Vinegar
Not much more screams "Summer" than hot dogs and mustard. We decided to up the ante by using bratwurst instead of the classic ballpark franks and top them with melted mustard onions, all stuffed into a delicious pretzel bun. Artisan Ingredient Used: Schaller & Weber Bavarian Style Mustard
