#AskAnExpert: To Salt or Not To Salt


Welcome Back Curious Queriers!

This week in our #AskAnExpert series, we posed a few simple questions to some of the talented chefs in our network. Hear about who they admire in the food industry, what produce they’re picking up right now, and answers to the age old question: to salt or not to salt?

Also this week, we are excited to offer a recipe from one of our Experts, Helena del Pesco of Larder, Baltimore. Here’s a sneak peak of this perfect-for-Thanksgiving soup recipe:

Sunchoke Soup

Our last Chef, Helena del Pesco, provided us with one of her go-to Thanksgiving recipes for sunchoke soup.

What’s a sunchoke you ask? It’s a knobby, root vegetable that’s in season right now. They are actually related to sunflowers, have an earthy, nutty flavor and are comparable to potatoes. Just be careful, they are also nicknamed ‘fartichokes!’
