Chef Seth Freedman

Since joining the PeachDish team in 2014 as culinary director, Seth Freedman has created hundreds of exciting and fun-to-make menus using fresh, seasonal ingredients from around the South. Seth worked with top chefs in New York and in Atlanta, and worked as the Program Director for a farm to school pilot program aimed at developing standards-based, hands-on garden and cooking curriculum for children from kindergarten to fifth grade. Seth also spent several years working as a farmers market chef in Atlanta. During this time, he established and developed connections between the market and local schools, after-school clubs, senior living facilities, and other community organizations. At these community connection posts, he shared his culinary knowledge and expertise, giving hands on cooking instruction as he explained how farmers markets can benefit an individual's health and community. In 2016, Chef Seth was named a Georgia Grown Executive Chef for his commitment to locally grown food. Seth loves cooking and teaching. This is as obvious when he reminisces on his former role at farmers markets as it is when he discusses his role at PeachDish. He believes that the objectives for both positions are not so different; both as Market Chef and as PeachDish culinary director, Seth helps people approach the idea of cooking for themselves, and gives them the tools to do so in a way that improves their health and supports Georgia’s local farming community.

METHOD

1
In a saucepan, combine 4 cups water, 1/2 teaspoon PeachDish Salt and saffron. Place over medium heat. When the liquid comes to a simmer remove from heat, but keep warm.
2
While you wait for the water to heat, prepare your mise en place: Pick and chop thyme and parsley leaves together; add herb stems to the saffron water. Roughly chop spinach. Peel and mince shallots.
3
Heat a sauté pan over medium heat, and add 2 teaspoons cooking oil. Add shallots. Cook, stirring, until shallot begins to become translucent, 2-3 minutes.
4
Add rice, and stir to combine. Add cooking wine, and cook briefly while stirring.
5
Add 1/4 cup saffron broth (you can remove the herb stems, or just avoid adding them to the risotto), and cook, stirring vigorously, until liquid is almost fully absorbed. Repeat this process until you’ve used all the broth and the rice is tender but still firm (“al dente”).
6
Stir in spinach, and cook until spinach is wilted, 1-2 minutes. If you’d like the rice more tender, add a bit of warm water, and cook, stirring, until it is absorbed.
7
Remove from heat, and vigorously stir in butter, most of Parmesan (save a little for garnish, if desired) and chopped herbs. Taste, and adjust seasoning as desired with PeachDish Salt.
8
The finished dish should be a similar consistency to firm rice pudding. If it is too stiff, stir in a little warm water. If risotto is too cool or too thin, return pan briefly to medium heat, and stir. Divide risotto between 2 plates or bowls, and top with remaining Parmesan, if desired. Serve immediately, and enjoy!
