Executive chef Shelly Rash will spice up the Holland Farmers Market weekly Chef Series on Saturday, August 25. He’ll demonstrate an array of salsas—raw, cooked, and fruit—using fresh ingredients from the market.
Rash, originally from Chicago, is currently the executive chef at CityVu Bistro of downtown Holland. He began his career with a degree in culinary arts from the prestigious Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. Before working in Holland, Rash worked in restaurants around the country, including Trio of Chicago.

Rash enjoys being a part of the Holland community, especially the Holland Farmers Market, as a way of bridging the gap of “difficult cooking,” and showing how easy it is to make healthy, delicious food in your own kitchen.

“My goal every year is to demonstrate how easy it can be for amateur cooks to impress friends or family with wonderful dishes,” said Rash.
