Lately, exciting things have been happening at Bishop’s Orchards Farm Market. Going into 2018 we wanted to communicate with our customers a little more, discovering what they were and were not coming in for. We have heard our customers and acknowledge the need for a strong, versatile, Prepared Food Department. In sprucing up the department, we hired a NEW, local chef, bringing his flavors back into the community. Chef Michael Aragon is most known for his eclectic menu from Whitfield’s On The Green. His contributions to our team have been mind blowing, both in taste and team morale!
Michael brings with him his very own recipes, made with clean, all natural ingredients. Some of his newest dishes include a Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin with a Mustard Seed Glaze, Beef and Vegetable Lasagna, Meatloaf, Chicken Pad Thai, Crusted Pork Chops and plenty of side dishes like Roasted Potatoes, Roasted Cauliflower, Spaghetti Squash and our Bishop’s Own Asparagus Medley, just to name a few. The feedback has been incredible, with the price and ingredients being just right! The best part, whenever possible, Chef Michael features Bishop’s ingredients or items in his dishes, like our seasonal asparagus or our heirloom tomato marinara.
Roasted, Free Range Whole Chickens are coming out of our kitchen. A dry rub is used for seasoning these 2.5lb chickens. They are the perfect size for a family of four, providing leftovers for lunch the next day. Our Roasted Chickens are also used in a NEW Chicken Curry Salad. It is great when served over a bed of greens, or simply by itself, with seasoning just right so as to not overwhelm. Along with our complete meal line-up, our Grab & Grill Meals have been remade with new recipes, different cuts of meat, and fresh made sauces on the side. Featured meals have included Pork Chops with Sweet Potatoes, Ahi Tuna with Squash and Peppers, Chicken and Asparagus, Sausage & Peppers, Peppered Salmon with Mushrooms, and Flank Steaks with Potatoes. Everything you need, still in one bag, with a sealed separation from the meat and vegetables.
Everyday we are amazed to see the continued efforts from this department in creating new dishes. You will start to see even more growth in our desserts, including our NEW Edible Cookie Dough flavors!! The direction we are headed in is more fresh and trendy than ever!!
