2015: This Year in Chef Alli’s Farm Fresh Kitchen!

 

The Year in ReviewI don’t know if you know this, but I am super blessed to work with some amazing brands and programs here in Kansas. But these aren’t just names or organizations. These are people who love Kansas, love agriculture, and love seeing wholesome products and ingredients in your kitchen. I love being a voice for agriculture all across the State and I am really excited to be able to bring Kansas agriculture to your dinner table!

AlliHere is a recap of our recipes and topics from the entire year, and what a year it’s been! Thank you to everyone who has been a part of Chef Alli’s Farm Fresh Kitchen in 2015. You’ve blessed my socks off and I cannot WAIT to see how much we can cook up together in 2016!

Happy New Year!
