CORALINE CHICORY CHEF'S CHALLENGE

Beginning on Monday, December 11, we will be challenging chefs to create a special using Coraline Chicory from California Endive Farms, located in Rio Vista, CA. Here is how it will work:

(1) A sales rep will challenge a chef by dropping off a case of Coraline 
(2) The chef will create a special using Coraline
(3) The chef will take a picture of the dish, post it to instragram, and tag @producexpress and @caendivefarms
(4) The chef will keep the challenge going by tagging another chef and Produce Express will deliver the new challenge a case of Coraline
