Imperfectly Delicious Produce

There are some fruits and veggies that don’t get as much love in the supermarkets. You may know them as “ugly produce” or “imperfect produce.” Up to 20% of produce grown in America does not make it off the farm because they are not up to grocery store standards. The size, color, shape, or overall appearance of produce may cause it to get tossed, rather than enjoyed! These fruits and veggies are just as nutritious and loaded with the key vitamins and minerals compared to the “pretty” produce.

Buying, using, and eating imperfect produce helps prevent food waste and creates a more sustainable food system. By throwing away this produce, we are not just wasting food, we also waste the resources used to grow and process the fruits and veggies.

If you think about it, most of the time you’re cooking these fruits and vegetables, right? When you dice, chop, and slice your produce, the perfect, unblemished form disappears. We should consider the quality and taste of our foods rather than what it looks like.

At CulinArt, our chefs are trained to incorporate imperfectly delicious produce into menus and finding creative ways to utilize produce and prevent food waste. Join us in trying some misshapen, flawed, yet still delicious produce!

What our clients are saying

“Yesterday I ordered the special (Bloody Mary Burger) which was one of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted, [but] this e-mail is not to praise the burger.  Eating the burger reminded me of the great service, professionalism, the smiles, the knowledge and the great food that I have come to love each and every day.  Your team, who really work as a team, take their time to explain nutrition and meal ideas, and encourage healthy eating.  I wouldn’t change one thing about this crew. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for their hard work each and every day.”

“What a night! You and your team rocked it and made us look like stars. Great working with you and know we will have more chances to work together on future events.”

““What a difference a top chef makes to student satisfaction and enjoyment of campus life!  At a recent boarding school conference, food was mentioned as a key retention method and it is really true. The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team. Frank even has a suggestion box, so he is always open to new ideas and he even offers cooking classes for our students!””

“"I'd like to just begin by thanking you for being IMMENSELY better than your predecessors. The food has been lightyears better and even more importantly I find that your staff actually enjoys being here doing what they do!!! I don't even know if I could start my mornings without Stacy and Marcus (and the rest of the gang too!!!) because of the great experience and wonderful food that they help provide for us. Thanks CulinArt!!!"”

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”

“All the food available today looked and smelled delicious. [What] I had was fantastic. Thank you and welcome to Fort Worth. We are excited to have you here.”

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”

“I wanted to thank you all for another successful Commencement weekend.  Once again, the CulinArt team pulled it off! I had the opportunity to visit many events this past weekend and the food looked great, was set up on time, and most importantly the “clients” were happy.  Congratulations on a job well done. ”

“We had an incredible Alumnae weekend! All of us in College Advancement are so very pleased with the success of this year’s reunion. We continue to receive positive feedback about the delicious food, the presentation and the service. Thank you so much for lending your expertise and knowledge to this weekend. You have my sincere gratitude for your hard work and dedication, you went above and beyond to make everyone’s’ experience memorable. Please share our appreciation with all of your colleagues. We are truly grateful to all of you!”
