DJ Olsen is the chef at Lou Wine Bar in Hollywood. Olsen's recipe for Grilled Sausage, Braised Greens and Peppers, Fried Herbed Polenta Cake and Salsa Verde is inspired by Maggie's Farm produce and poultry. The complete recipe is on the Good Food Blog.
Olsen's farmer-inspired Monday night dinners will continue until October 10. The meals are $55 with wine pairings.
Alex Weiser is the owner of Weiser Farms. He's well known for his potatoes and melons, but this time of year he also sells padron peppers. Weiser prefers to blister the peppers in his tabletop roaster and then sprinkle with salt before eating.
