At College Chefs, we strive to be the best at everything we do. Our main focus is to provide chefs with the best quality of life possible. We give them creative freedom and reasonable work hours along with a culture that puts them first. Along the same lines, we aim to be the best in terms of service to our customers as well. We do our best to understand their likes and dislikes and make positive changes accordingly.
The third piece of this puzzle comes down to quality of food. Not only do we want the best tasting food, but we want to put out the food that is best for our bodies. At College Chefs, we are constantly building relationships with vendors who we think are supplying food the right way. Strauss Farms is one of those vendors who we believe is at the top of the industry.
College Chefs Director of Operations, Chef Jared Bost paid a visit to Strauss Farms this past month. Strauss is a Free-Raised, Grass-Fed Beef Provider, raising their beef on independent Family Farms. College Chefs has always tried to bring the best ingredients to our Houses and Strauss definitely provides just that!
Why Grass-fed, Grass-finished?
Strauss does a fantastic job of sticking to their values. According to their website, "Our Free Raised® Beef is raised as nature-intended – 100% grass-fed and grass-finished. Grass finishing is an art, and our family farmers and ranchers are experts at it. They graze heritage-bred cattle slowly and patiently, on open pastures to produce authentic, consistently tender and delicious, marbled grass-fed beef.
Lower in total fat, calories and cholesterol, Free Raised® Beef is a healthy alternative to conventionally raised, grain-finished beef. It’s been shown to have two to three times more conjugated linoleic acids (CLAs) than grain-finished beef and is higher in omega 3s and vitamin E—which protects against heart disease and cancer."
College Chefs' strongly believes in the importance of Grass-fed, Grass-finished beef and is diligently working to get it in each and every one of our houses. In all categories of food, we will continue to discover and provide the highest quality possible, to ensure only the best food will be coming out of our kitchens.
