Reading, PA – October 8, 2013 – With the holiday season approaching, it’s a nostaligic time for food and family.  Everyone likes to pull out their favorite traditional recipes, as the weather turns colder, people tend to enjoy richer and more substantial meals.  The big feasts of the season, like Thanksgiving and Christmas, feature tasty and hearty dishes.

So what does a professional chef like Paul Marshall prepare for his family’s feast?  He prefers Crown Pork Roast Stuffed with Sun Dried Apricots, cooked to perfection on his BlueStar professional gas range for the home.

“Growing up, my grandmother made this recipe every Christmas.  many people make pork loin for the holidays, but this crown rack always seemed extra special.  I now make it every year and could not imagine the holidays without it,” says Chef Marshall.

How does Chef Marshall’s BlueStar make his holiday dish even better than Grandma’s?  According to Marshall, “Not only does this large dish easily fit in my BlueStar oven since its large enough to accommodate a commercial sheet pan, but the convection oven feature provides perfectly even heat distribution around the entire pork rack.  The pork cooks evenly throughout and is tender and delicious every time.”

From his childhood on the bayou in rural Louisiana, the land of cayenne pepper, roux, seafood gumbo, beignets, and Andouille Sausage, Paul always showed a passion for cooking.  During seven years under the watchful eye of Fernando Oca he learned classical French technique.  Marshall returned to his New Orleans roots to work under Emeril Lagasse at Commander’s Palace.  There he further developed his passion for “the new” New Orleans cuisine, a melting pot of French, Spanish and American flavors.

Chef Marshall also was the Chef de Cuisine of Oscars at The French Brasserie in The Waldorf Astoria.  Since then, he moved to Malvern, PA with wife Julie and pieced back an old dairy farm dating back to 1744.  He has perfected the art of growing and preparing seasonal, local foods, culminating in a Farm to Table dining experience, but one of his favorite seasonal dishes is still Grandma’s Stuffed Roast Pork, a classic holiday favorite.
