“I’ve always had an appreciation for our ingredients as every chef does, but with the tours, meeting the farmers, seeing the production first hand and the care that is put into the product, my mind was blown. California Giant Berry Farms truly loves what they do and it reflects in everything.”
"I really feel that sometimes people only look at berries as a dessert application or a snack, but there's so much more versatility to fresh berries. This gathering of chefs ensures that we're giving all foodies the chance to see berries as we do."
"I loved getting to know fellow chefs and being creative with one of my favorite ingredients - berries. Having a mid-summer field tour and culinary competition brought out the best dishes I've seen in a long time."
