“This wildly popular (butternut squash) simple soup recipe has been with me for 15 years, and it has become legendary,” said Executive Chef Josh Short. “I am always asked what the secret to making this soup taste so amazing, and my answer is simple: organically grown squash that we source from Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative. It’s so popular that we also offer it by the quart to-go, and a lot of people take advantage of that….( in reference to the chili) We are working with local farms around Lancaster County to source ground Heritage Bronze turkey meat, and it’s delicious.”
