Wegmans hosts kale tasting event

All Wegmans stores will host a kale tasting event on Nov. 1, with each department offering a unique dish that features the leafy green as an ingredient.

“Kale tastes great in so many different ways that I think every customer who comes to the store for the ‘Love Kale’ event will be in for some nice surprises,” Executive chef John Steinhoff said in a press release. “Every dish we’ll be sampling features kale as an ingredient, so customers will get a sense of its versatility. There’ll be a salad and side dishes, a vegetarian sushi roll, a pasta dish, a smoothie, and even sweets and snacks. We’ll have recipe cards for those who want to recreate some of these dishes at home.”

Dishes will range from sautéed kale in the produce department to kale smoothies in frozen foods to Tuscan roasted squash and kale with roasted honey-brined rib end of pork in the meat department.
