Chef Inspired Dish, Quality Social: Vegetarian Barley Stuffed Squash

Chef Inspired Dish, Quality Social: Vegetarian Barley Stuffed Squash

Before the New Year I had the pleasure of meeting, interviewing and cooking with Chef Dustin Beckner of Quality Social, Downtown San Diego.

I had the idea to incorporate “Chef Inspired Dishes” into Little Leopard Book a few months before and after working with Quality Social on several Boys & Girls Club Events, like the Scavenger Hunt this summer, I was able to set up an interview with their extremely talented chef.

Unfortunately trying to be the cameraman, host and interviewer proved to be a difficult feat, so please excuse any awkwardness in the video!  (And don’t worry, I’ve partnered with a video producer for my next segment 😉 )
