Apply for JBF's Jean-Louis Palladin Professional Work/Study Grant

 

You can study up on classic or cutting-edge technique all you want, but many chefs will attest that one of the most valuable aspects of cooking is an intimate knowledge of ingredients and the people who produce them.

 

To help bring cooks and producers closer together, each year we award our Jean-Louis Palladin Professional Work/Study Grant—named after the French chef whose dedication for mentorship matched his legendary talent—to qualified, professional chefs who are looking for hands-on experience with farmers or artisans. Candidates may apply for a pre-arranged internship (such as a stint at the Chef's Garden in Huron, Ohio, or an apprenticeship with a winemaker in France) or draft an original plan and curriculum.

 

Applications for this year's grant are due Friday, June 15. Click here to download the form.

Recipe: Spring Pea Bissara

 

Our favorite pea recipes are the ones that keep the vegetable's freshness in tact, so we're happy to have gotten our hands on Ana Sortun's vibrant bissara, a North African dip, just as pea season is taking off. Sortun pulses straight-from-the-pod peas with assorted herbs, onions, walnut oil, and smoky Aleppo pepper, resulting in a delicious spread that's at home on pita or on crackers. Get the recipe here
