“I use ingredients and methods from all over the world to create bold flavors, all rooted in seasonality. OXO helps me do this at home and in the restaurant.”
Ginger and Maple Candied Sweet Potatoes
Gregory's festive veggie side is inspired by his mom's recipe, a family favorite. "It's a perfect mix of my Haitian heritage and an American classic—and a great crowd pleaser."
My Favorite OXO Tool: Multi Cherry Pitter
“Living in the Pacific Northwest, we are obsessed with cherries, so I definitely need a reliable and fast cherry pitter.”
Creamy Sundried Tomato and Cashew Roasted Cauliflower Salad
Seasonal veggies get roasted on a sheet tray, then tossed in a vegan cashew-based dressing to create this warm, flavorful salad or side dish.
