Summer is the best time to get your hands on a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables – and local produce guru Bob Corey can offer some great ideas on what to do with it.
“The Produce Corner with Bob Corey” – which spanned 23 years as a local news segment on TV stations nationwide and three years on the Food Network – is now available on You Tube and online at www.producecornerwithbobcorey.com.
After taping more than 3,000 segments in his TV career, Corey selected nearly 300 of the most informative to showcase online. These videos guide viewers through and entire year of seasonal produce, offering nutritional information, cooking tips and more along the way. Hundreds of recipes can also be easily printed and forwarded from the site.
In addition to helping inspire home cooks to incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables into their diets, Corey hopes the new resource will be utilized by restaurants, grocery stores and other food-related businesses as well.
“The Produce Corner with Bob Corey website, its episodes and recipes are available to incorporate into produce personnel training” he said.
“My vision is for the site to be an interesting and entertaining training and education tool to complement existing produce training programs to further educate managers, staff and trainees – as well as chefs, apprentices and culinary students who may not have the knowledge to convey to their customers information about an item or how to prep, fix and prepare it for their enjoyment.”
