STAFF PICKS: Brussels are Back


This week we turned to the TRADE staff to find out what some of their must-have menu items are this winter. You know, the ones they can’t live without. The reason they get out of bed in the morning. First up, we have Jamie, who’s love for brussels sprouts runs deep.

Brussel sprouts are little bundles of joy on their own, and when you add Trade’s very own take on Chinese 5-spice to the party, you’ve got addicting bursts of flavor. These jammers are quickly blanched, then hard seared giving it an ever so charred exterior while maintaining it’s brussely goodness. Sesame aioli and gomashio [a Japanes condiment of sesame and salt]  finish this beauty. These lil’ guys never had a chance.

The Wall Street Journal‘s Jane Black takes a look at how modern menus are shifting focus from meat-centric dishes to healthier options highlighting seasonal veggies. A practice that has always been important to us, we’re thrilled to be included in her piece. Great to see veggies finally getting their dues!
