Our local food system is strengthened not only by local farmers and makers, but also by the artistry of local chefs and authors who highlight the amazing seasonal ingredients available to us. Chefs Yia Vang, Maurice Wallace, and Austin Bartold, and award-winning cookbook author Beth Dooley are sharing some of their favorite recipes that feature local, seasonal ingredients in these videos. These folks are bringing dishes to the local food scene that aren’t just beautiful and tasty, they’re meaningful too. Be sure to click the link for each recipe and try these at home!

As an extra thanks to these local food icons, Lakewinds made donations of $450 to the nonprofits of their choosing.
