This year we did not launch our newest innovation at Expo. Instead, we flipped the script and sought data with which to refine and perfect our offering.

But just in case you’re fresh out of creativity from your show-stopping Turkey Day dish, we’ve asked ReGrained’s very own Commander-in-Chef, Phil Saneski, to do that part for you.
