Chef Josh Fidler is the mastermind behind Fidler & Co. Craft Kitchen & Grocery in Gettysburg. This Adams County gem churns out some of the most revelatory cuisine around with a mashup of fusion flavors and careful attention to the freshest locally sourced ingredients. Pennsylvania produce has a prime spot on the menu at Fidler & Co.

“I look forward to tomatoes and corn the most,” says Chef Josh.

“When the heirloom tomatoes come in, I like to slice them up, put a little salt on them and give them to the servers,” he added. “They always say, ‘Wow, I’ve never had a tomato like this.’ It makes me happy. And it’s always followed by, ‘Can I have some more?’ [laughs].”

College found Josh in California, where he would frequently head across the border to Mexico to sample the local delicacies. His recipe for Mexican Grilled Corn is based on fond memories from when he would get delicious ears from street carts south of the border.

Infused with spices that play against the sweetness of the corn and enriched by mayonnaise and Cotija cheese, this recipe will elevate any BBQ or summer dinner.

Tips from Chef Josh Fidler

  • Try different types of sea salt with recipes like Mexican Grilled Corn (above) to see what you like best.
  • Simple is best. Chose preparations that showcase how great and fresh the produce is.
  • Tomato salads and gazpacho are a great way to use summer tomatoes.
  • Try grilling zucchini or summer squash and then dressing it in a light vinaigrette.
  • Bring your kids (or nephews/nieces/grandkids) with you to the market. One of my favorite memories from childhood is picking out corn and more at the local market with my grandparents.

  • As a dietitian, one of the most common questions I get asked is “how to eat healthier”. And that truly starts with eating more fruits and more veggies! Ideally, every time you eat, try to include a serving of fruit or a a serving of veggies! And there’s no better time in PA to do that then right now! During produce month (and all throughout growing season) the local veggies are the most bountiful, the most flavorful, and super nutritious!

Today I made a fresh zucchini bread from a zucchini brought home from the @lansdalefarmersmarket (if only you could smell my kitchen)! Zucchini are loaded with potassium and vitamin c to help keep you feeling great! .

This recipe is super easy and includes:
*1 1/2c flour *1t cinnamon *1/2t baking soda *1/4t baking powder *a Pinch of salt *1c grated zucchini
*1 egg *1/4c oil * zest of a lemon 
I baked it at 350 for 55 min!!

  • Last post of the day. It's been great representing PA veggies for the day. I leave you with #ratatouille. There were a good 10 pounds of vegetables that went into this ratatouille. I may have gone overboard on the #paveggies (or not). Happy cooking!

  • Hope you're inspired to get in the kitchen and cook. You can find recipes from today's pics plus many, many more on my blog, Wild Greens and Sardines -- heavily influenced by my travels near and far (in particular, the Mediterranean). #paveggies #paveggiesIG #paproducemonth #vegetables #paproduce #foodblogger #homegrownhappiness #eatlocal
  • I love going to the farmers' market each week and getting to know local farmers and food artisans and letting the season be my guide. Eggplant is one of my favorite summer veg. A  versatile member of the nightshade family, eggplant lends itself well to many preparations, such as smoky baba ghanoush, caponata (Sicilian sweet and sour eggant), Sicilian baked, layered eggplant, Turkish (pide) flat bread.

  • Sweet, local PA, summer corn. Need I say more. Grilled or turned into taco filling; tomato, corn, okra salad; chilled corn soup; corn farro salad... What's your favorite way to enjoy fresh corn?

  • What would summer be without a juicy, vine-ripened tomato? With more than 3,000 varieties of heirloom tomatoes and greater than 15,000 known varieties, the possibilities are endless. Perhaps a tomato is best with nothing more than a pinch of flaky sea salt and a drizzle of olive oil.
