Starting in January, The Farm House Cafe's Olivier Bioteau will begin shooting a new series of twenty minute cooking shows called Garden to Plate, in which he'll visit local farms and gardens to gather ingredients and bring them back to his home kitchen for a simple and straightforward cooking segment. The best part? The dishes made on the show will have guest-starring appearances on the menu at the restaurant after each video is posted.
The French-born chef trained in Michelin-starred restaurants before moving to San Diego nearly two decades ago; in 2008, he opened The Farm House Cafe with his wife Rochelle. Bioteau's a member of the Cooks Confab and often volunteers to teach cooking demos to students at nearby Birney Elementary. He tells Eater that future shows (to be posted on YouTube) will feature a collaboration with a local Japanese chef in a sake vs. wine pairing cook-off and a pork-centric episode with Carnitas Snack Shack's Hanis Cavin.
