Today's Toast goes out to one of our top chefs, Joe Goetze. As Corporate Chef VSAG, a National Restaurant Advisory Group, and Corporate Chef for Founding Farmers Restaurant Group Joe develops their recipes, leads the culinary team, researches ingredient sourcing and develops the produce and purveyor partnerships. No easy feat! Joe has worked all over the country, but if you're from Dallas you may know him from his time spent at various great restaurants, from his humble beginnings with many of his great chef friends at The Landmark to culinary operations at eatZi's Market & Bakery. His decades of experience and hard work has paid off at Founding Farmers, which just earned the Washington D.C. restaurant Power Spot 2012 RAMMY.* The RAMMY describes it as "a top choice member restaurant, a spot to 'see and be seen' with the movers and shakers on the national and local political and business scene. It best exemplifies 'how Metropolitan Washington works.'" Joe believes in running a green and sustainable operation that brings quality natural ingredients straight from the farm to the tabletop. A man after our own hearts! In fact, we love him so much one of POSH's own has been married to him for 18 years.Bet you can guess who!
Chef Joe dished out five of our tasty favorites on POSH's classic Catering Collection.
