The Oxbow Box Project – The Chefs Apprentice

the oxbow box

Cooking locally and sustainably are more than buzzwords for Raquel DeHoyos. Former kitchen manager at Ray’s Boathouse – where she was one of our best restaurant customers! She now preaches that philosophy at the Cooking Matters program where she oversees nutrition and cooking classes for people living on low-incomes. See how she makes The Oxbow Box shine in these ethnic inspired recipes on her blog The Chefs Apprentice!

She had a lot of fun with our box and posted 2 different meals. Her first post featured our Japanese turnips and our purple carrots. Check out post & get recipes here.

Her second post was all about our lettuces and a fantastic Ginger Honey Vinaigrette. Check out post and get recipes here.
