Learn to Prepare Spanish-Inspired Dishes This Saturday at the Chef Series

Chef Shelly Rash from Seventy-Six Restaurant will prepare a variety of Spanish-inspired dishes for the Chef Series at the Holland Farmers Market this Saturday, August 24 at 10:00 am. These delicious small plates, made with ingredients fresh from the Market, will give audience members a sneak peek into Seventy-Six’s new sister tapas restaurant, Poquito, opening in Downtown Holland later this year! The Chef Series is proudly sponsored by Higher Health Chiropractic with in-kind support from Visser Farms.

A Chicago native, Rash has lived and worked in the Holland area for the past 12 years following a career that has taken him all across the country. After receiving his culinary degree from Johnson and Wales in Providence, Rhode Island, Rash spent most of his formative years working in fine dining restaurants including the prestigious “Trio” outside of Chicago. Rash now resides as Executive Chef at Seventy-Six after joining their team this past fall.

Each week during the Chef Series at the Holland Farmers Market, a talented local chef, caterer or Market vendor demonstrates how to prepare an easy, healthy and delicious meal using fresh Market ingredients. The Chef Series is held at 10:00 am every Saturday through August 31 and is
free to attend. Recipes are available at the demonstration and will also be posted online at the week following the demonstration.
