Chef Chandon Clenard is on a mission to shift our culinary perspectives. At the heart of this quest is his love for experimenting with vegetables, aiming not solely to appeal to vegetarians but to thrill meat lovers seeking diversity. His Butternut Squash Dumplings with Truffled Pho Broth exemplify this ethos, blending tradition with innovation.
Speaking to the allure of pho, Clenard exclaims, “It’s chicken soup, man... It’s simple but complex, with banging flavor. It’s a unique taste experience.” Impressed by Custom Culinary®’s Beef Pho Broth for its authentic taste and depth, Clenard transformed a dish concept from edamame dumplings in dashi broth to this delightful butternut squash variation in pho. The dumpling shines as the homemade element in this "speed scratch" dish, complemented brilliantly by the rich pho.
