Fun with Fiddlehead Ferns

Looking for a new veggie to try this summer? Your search is over! Check out these swirly fiddlehead ferns. They are currently in season and are rising in popularity. You can find this green vegetable growing in eastern North American forests and are harvested from young fern plants throughout the spring. Taste and texture wise, they are similar to asparagus and broccoli. These curly veggies are very high in vitamin A, which is essential for good vision and maintaining a healthy immune system.

Cooking with fiddlehead ferns

  • Consuming raw and undercooked fiddlehead ferns could cause stomach discomfort. Be sure to cook this green veggie by boiling or steaming for 10-15 minutes before enjoying.
  • When choosing fiddleheads, look for ones that are firm and bright in color.
  • Tightly wrap fiddleheads before storing in the refrigerator. For a longer shelf life, blanch them and store in the freezer.
  • Use fiddlehead ferns in stir fries, omelets, salads, and soups. Sautee, roast, steam, or boil – there are many ways to make fiddleheads the star of any dish.

These fascinating veggies are fun to look at and delicious to eat! Find them at local farmers markets, in the grocery store and perhaps even in your CulinArt cafe!

What our clients are saying

“I ALWAYS feel spoiled by the meal offerings at CSW (The Cambridge School of Weston) and am entirely grateful for it. As I eat today's delicious and lavish lunch (and think about yesterday's as well), I can't tell you how much I feel so well cared for here, both with the food and by the dining hall staff. CSW cares for us in so many ways, both big and small.”

“I’m the GM for Branson [Ultrasonics] and based in the Brookfield office.  This is the first week that the café has been up and running in our new headquarters and just want to acknowledge the great job Adam Schnittert and the CulinArt staff onsite have done.  Our employees’ feedback thus far has been very positive.  The expanded options and menu quality have been very well received.  Just want to send you a quick note of thanks.”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“I have really appreciated the wonderful cafeteria staff we have via Culinart and the thoughtful meals they provide our kids. They're truly one in a million. I have also really appreciated the dedication Parker and CulinArt share to sustainability and green practices on campus. I am so thankful that Parker has chosen CulinArt, a company that shares Parker values, and that they took the time and effort at such a hard time to make sure that Parker is always on the forefront of green practices and safety - never compromising.”

“The roasted tofu/noodle/edamame arugula salad with cabbage, carrots and red peppers was something that I would buy from a restaurant or food truck without question. It would win best school lunch in the U.S. without a doubt if there was such a competition! The textures and flavors were a perfect blend, tied together by an excellent dressing. I don't think anyone would be mad if that popped up on the menu every week. Thanks again to you and your staff for such high-quality food!”

“I just wanted to express my thanks and give two thumbs up for the updates to our lunch menu. My selections have been quite tasty—corned beef Reuben, jambalaya—and I appreciate that, too! I am looking forward to trying some new items in the coming weeks. Keep up the good work!”

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“I will say that CulinArt has always been a very collaborative partner to T. Rowe Price, listening to our current needs and future goals and suggesting realistic and achievable strategies to meet those goals.  2020 was obviously no exception.  CulinArt also altered other areas of our OCS and pantry programs to create safer environments for all our associates. We can only thank you for your continued flexibility and innovative ideas through these difficult times.”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”
