Laura Avery chats with private chef Dave Rubell, who talks about creating a vegetable sauté with the bounty of the market. Create your own with your favorite vegetables.

Where to find those savory shallots, you ask? Farmer Alex Weiser, of Weiser Family Farms, will have shallots beginning this weekend. These brown-skinned, multi-bulbed flavor-enhancers are beloved by chefs for their flavor, which falls somewhere between garlic and onion.
