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.

Ok y’all, @bonappetitmag has put together #aweekendwithoutplastic campaign so I wanted to share my favorite way to store cooking greens like Kale, Swiss chard, Boc choy...you name it.
🌱first thing I do is wet the whole bunch of greens
🌱then I take a cotton or linen cloth, and wet the whole cloth too...just soak it and ring it out so it’s soaked through, but not dripping.
🌱for this I’m using a furoshiki cloth from @thekitchengardenseries (Philly based!) that I absolutely adore and use all the time for just about everything in the kitchen!
🌱next just wrap up your greens so they are completely covered. Put your bundle into your fridge, and you’re good!  No plastic!
And perfectly stored greens! The greens will last for a close to a week this way, just re-dampen your cloth if it dries out. We can do this!! Less is more ❤️ #taprootfarmpa #taprootfarmcsa #passionforfoodpassionforsustainability
  • If you used some #paveggies preservation tips from paveggies.org, perhaps you still have last season tomatoes to put into action for this delicious dip. #Repost @pa.eats

You can find the recipe on PAEats.com and in Marisa’s latest cookbook, The Food in Jars Kitchen. In this new cookbook you’ll find 140 ways to utilize preserved pantry goodies. We will be launching an Instagram contest this week to giveaway a copy of the book! Stay tuned. 🧀 #PAEats #PennsylvaniaKitchen
