Today I have very special DBS Obsession for my readers! Read on and you’ll be rewarded with a delicious treat…
Several years ago I started working with Visit San Luis Obispo County and Sunset Magazine to provide social media support to SAVOR the Central Coast, hosted at the Santa Margarita Ranch. Working on this exciting event is always a great time, and it has allowed me to meet a number of incredible chefs who have presented at the event.
During last year’s event, I had the pleasure of meeting cookbook author and Emmy nominated culinary host, Chef Nathan Lyon (of Next Food Network Star fame), and his lovely partner-in-crime Sarah Forman (or as he refers to her, Super Sous). The two of them are a joy to be around, with smiles constantly on their faces. However, more pertinent to this post is the fact that Nathan is an INCREDIBLE chef.
I could go on and on about Nathan’s culinary history and many accolades, but I’ll just point you to his website for more information on him and his book: chefnathanlyon.com.
If you don’t see everything you want to there, not to worry, because this duo is behind a rare chef social media presence, done right. So often, the online presence of chefs come across as forced and inauthentic, but that is far from the case here. With content-rich profiles on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, Chef Nathan Lyon is nailing it in the social media realm, with a constant stream of drool-inducing images to fill your newsfeed.
As mentioned earlier, in addition to being a chef, Nathan is an author! I picked up his book, Great Food Starts Fresh, and am in love with it. It is no wonder that it made it onto The Washington’s Post’s ‘Top Cookbooks’ list. There are so many recipes that allow you to utilize the abundance of ingredients that we find in the farmer’s market throughout the year. I highly recommend this one.
Ok, enough with all of this food talk and no actual food! Chef Nathan Lyon was awesome enough to put together a delicious summer recipe, using my personal favorite brand of all things cheese, Cowgirl Creamery. Take a look at this tasty recipe that just screams SUMMER!
