Grilled fruits and veggies? Check out this hot trend

With summer nearly upon us, here’s a healthy idea that’s already catching on: Throw some fruits and veggies on the grill.

Produce-grilling is already a smoking-hot trend, and for good reason. It adds unexpected flavor and texture to your favorite fruits and veggies, and it’s an easy way to add the good stuff to your summer menu.

Get the Kids, Get Outside and Get Healthy with a Family Garden

This blog was written by Ron Abell, Aramark’s senior executive chef at Fenway Park. Learn more about Ron Abell and Fenway Farms.

Springtime for me means baseball and gardening. Fortunately, I get to experience the best of both worlds, right here at Fenway Park. Fenway is not only home to the nine-time World Series Champion Boston Red Sox, but one of the finest rooftop gardens in all of sports. For me, there’s nothing like cooking with freshly-picked ingredients from the garden, feet away from the kitchen.
