Matthew Jennings  P.M.A. & FLAVOR FORWARD. COOKING UP ADVENTURE & SERVING UP LOVE. . . . OFFERING FOOD, BEVERAGE & HOSPITALITY SOLUTIONS VIA @fullhearthospitality โค๏ธ๐Ÿ

I am literally gutted to have to tell you that my friend, Tenzin Samdo- one of most humble, kind, loving, curious and wildly talented bartenders, Beverage Managers and mixologists Iโ€™ve ever known, is currently battling advanced stage liver cancer. .
.
Tenzin literally embodies the most pure spirit of hospitality. He is deft beyond description behind the bar, constantly pushing his own progression and thereby- our industry. He is equally as fierce a friend and father to his adorable son, Mila. Tenzin has always been there to support me and to pick me up when I was down and out. His positivity is infectious. Anyone who has ever spent one on one time with Tenzin knows exactly what Iโ€™m talking about. .
.
It is now time for us- his community- the entire industry- to embrace and support him in any way we are able. A fundraiser is being held in his honor on Jan. 30th @cafeartscience and a @gofundme has been set up in his honor. Please do anything you can for this truly incredible human. Tenzin- I love you and this city loves you beyond words. Link in my profile. Please show the power of true hospitality. ๐Ÿ“ธ: @starchefs .

Snowy winter nights call for hearty, inventive and delicious vegetable cooking. Weโ€™ve been loving this #hasselback #butternutsquash with #pigment rich #freekeh, #salsaverde and #maraspepper. ๐Ÿด๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐ŸŽฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ†’
.
.
We roast the squash neck like hasselback potatoes, (save the bottom of the squash for gnocchi) and then serve it on top of freekeh with lots of pigment rich vegetables like purple turnips, purple cabbage, purple carrots and pole beans, folded in. Itโ€™s the perfect meal for two, and as the snow comes down Iโ€™ll take one more bite before I have to go out and shovel! โ„๏ธโ„๏ธโ„๏ธโ„๏ธโ„๏ธโ„๏ธ
