Next up in "Meet the Team" is Travis Mitchell. He runs the scratchDC kitchen on a day-to-day basis. This includes:
Ordering fresh, local food
Managing the food prep process
Tracking cost and availability of local products
Finding ways to produce less waste and making scratchDC as "green" as possible
As our resident saucier, making the best salsa you've ever had.*
Some Travis tidbits:
Favorite scratchDC Meal: Beef Wellington w/ Red Wine Reduction
Favorite Food from Back Home in VA: It's a tie: My dad's pancakes and my Mom's fresh picked strawberry pie
In my spare time I like to... play drums, golf, play with my dogs, and homebrew beer!
Something interesting about me is... I was the drummer in a blues/rock band in college (JMU) called Dirty And The Mudflaps. My nickname was Styx Jr.
*I can attest to our salsa's greatness. It's a magical elixir. I could do shots of it.
