The Dish on Chia Seeds – Give ‘em a try!

Our resident foodie, Elizabeth Blake, forwarded me this article (http://www.foodandwine.com/blogs/2014/1/6/9-ways-to-use-chia-seeds?xid=DISH010914WaysToUseChia) because she knew that I am a chia fan.  The team is always making fun of me for it, because chia seeds are a bit off the wall.  In fact, my kids openly mock me with “Daddy eats chia pets!” before dissolving into laughter and running […]

July’s Dish Tip: The dish on Summer Orzo Salad

Orzo…what is it? Featured in our Santorini Chicken Kabobs and Summer Orzo Salad, orzo is rice-shaped pasta.  Orzo soaks up the lemony vinaigrette that gives this meal bright summery flavor.

Salmon Update: Good News!

Regular dishers have noticed that our signature salmon has taken an extended summer vacation.  Long story short: the worldwide salmon shortage has made our signature 2-lb fresh Chliean filets nearly impossible to come by at any price.   (Long story long can be found on my blog post here).  The good news is that the […]

The Fish That Got Away (for now)

You may be wondering why our recent menus have not featured Let’s Dish! signature salmon dishes.  Believe me, we miss it as much as you do.  That said, I wanted to explain why these super-popular dishes have gone missing in recent months.

To the Unsung Heroes fighting to eradicate breast cancer!
