When VT food editor Mary Margaret Chappell ate at Leaf Restaurant in Boulder, Colorado for the first time at the beginning of 2015, she knew she’d happened upon something special. Sure, the restaurant is regularly touted as one of the best vegetarian dining spots in the country, but her meal exceeded her expectations.
So began her quest to work with Leaf Restaurant’s executive chef, Rachel Best. First came a brunch recipe for biscuits and sausage gravy from the restaurant. Then, this video series, which showcases three of the young, talented chef’s regular recipe techniques. And the collaboration continues! In June 2016, Rachel will develop a vegetarian wedding menu exclusively for Vegetarian Times.
