AeroFarms on ABC’s The Chew
The Chew celebrated “Be Your Best Week” with a story changing the way we think about food. Chef Mario Batali, from ABC’s The Chew, visited our global headquarters and world’s largest indoor vertical farm in Newark, NJ and shared a behind the scenes look into how we grow our flavorful leafy greens! He then visited our friends over at Philip’s Academy Charter School, who are proudly growing fresh leafy greens right in their Student Dining Hall using our AeroFarms growing technology.
The students were then taught a new recipe by Chef Mario, creating a healthy, whole wheat penne pasta dish featuring our peppery arugula! To try this delicious recipe, click here.
Our team also had the chance to attend the taping of this episode, along with some of our friends from Philip’s Academy Charter School! If you would like to watch the full episode, click here – MONDAY: Lunch Lessons or if you’d like to watch just our segment, click here!
