MONTEREY, CA — Chef Richard Blais, the genius behind restaurants like Atlanta's FLIP Burger Boutique (now with locations in Birmingham Nashville) and San Diego's Juniper & Ivy, first won fame as a "Top Chef" winner and judge, and is now know as the host of the Food Network hit series "Hungry Games."
The Produce News caught up with Blais recently for a discussion about where trends in the industry are going.
Some of the industry's current stalwarts may be on the way out. Blais' advise? Be ready for the return of carrots, beets, Swiss chard and other surprises.
