Last week we launched episode 2 of Skill’it!
The challenge was to create a composed entrée that highlights seasonal produce. The local fresh produce was brought by Farmer John, an organic farmer/owner of Rio Gozo Farm in California.
The contestants did a fantastic job and created delicious dishes. We are privileged enough to get the full recipes to all those mouth-watering dishes.
