As the weather warms up, now is the perfect time to enjoy some fresh, seasonal produce. Always brimming with ideas and inspiration, our executive chef, Obataiye Allen, recently made an appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning Washington” and shared some healthy recipes to welcome in the new season. Fortunately, you needn’t go far to taste his delicious creations, as he developed the menus for our signature restaurants, featuring regionally inspired cuisine and local ingredients.
After working in such prestigious kitchens as The Greenbrier, The Gaylord, and PinehurstResortand serving as executive chef at The Hyatt Regency Hotel in Fairfax, VA, Obataiye brought his culinary skills to The Providence and has been tantalizing taste buds ever since! Here he shares two healthy salads, loaded with flavor, that are as delicious as they are easy to make:
1 bag baby spinach, pre-cut and washed(about two handfuls per serving)
8 ounces Applewood bacon
4 ounces shallots
8 ounces Worcestershire sauce
4 ounces sugar
1 egg, hard-boiled, sliced in quarters
1 bag watercress salad mix (two handfuls per serving)
Roasted heirloom tomatoes
8 ounces butter
1 ounce Old Bay Seasoning
Aged balsamic vinegar
