Ask a Markon Chef

Don't Be Afraid To Ask.

Even the most accomplished chefs have questions about ingredients, pairings, shelf-life, and more.

Running a foodservice operation is a multi-faceted job that requires hard work, determination, and most of all, the passion to continue learning.

Your Craft: Never Stop Learning
Chefs are unique—creative, curious, and full of passion. And whether you’ve been in the industry for one year or thirty, you still need a trusted source for all of your produce questions. What is the latest ‘it’ ingredient? How do you make produce the center-of-the-plate for the increasing number of veg- and flexitarians? What’s the latest trend in beverages? Foodservice is one of the most complex industries in the world today—one that concerns not only basic nourishment, but customer cravings, health requirements, allergy options, and ever-changing trends. That’s why Markon has gathered a group of our member- and grower-affiliated chefs to answer your questions about produce. Ask Chef David Evans of Gordon Food Service Canada your culinary produce questions.

Featured Question

House-made spreads like chutney, jams, and jellies help establish authenticity—what is your favorite and what is it served with?

I use a spread of MFC Strawberries, rhubarb, and bacon jam on one side of the bun of a wagyu beef burger; I pile the other side of the bun with peanut butter and RSS Heritage Blend. It’s adventurous and unexpected, but delicious!

Good eating!
