Local Longhorn ‘harvests’ food for those in need By Clay Neely Longhorn Steakhouse’s parent company, Darden Restaurants Inc., created the Darden Harvest program 10 years ago as way to help feed the hungry in the communities in which they operate. Here in Newnan, the local Longhorn will “harvest” surplus, wholesome food t hat wasn’t served in its restaurant and donate it to the Newnan Housing Authority. Items such as fresh fish and other meats, soups and bread are donated. These items are never leftovers — just unused, fresh food. Rebeka Prater, managing partner for the Longhorn Steakhouse in Newnan, provided a glimpse of their “harvest” operation. She explained that every Darden restaurant is strongly encouraged to participate in the harvest program and that the goal of the Longhorn Steakhouse in Newnan is between 50 to 100 pounds of food a week. “The food has to not only be safe but it has to be quality as well. For instance, if you’re trimming off meat, it has to be 70 percent lean. Anything and everything that we don’t have a use for but is completely safe is good to go.” All employees are trained how to prepare the “harvest” surplus. Prater walked through the preparation of the food for the harvest. Fresh meats, chicken, fish and breads are cooked, cooled, labeled and logged then stocked in the cooler until the weekly pickup. If the designated amount of daily specials aren’t ordered, they will cook them regardless and then store them as well. She makes it clear that all the food that is used in the harvest is made explicitly for that purpose. “Once any food is served at the table, it goes directly in the trash. Leftovers have nothing to do with the food we prepare,” said Prater. Gly n i s Ta n ner f rom t he Newnan Housing Authority drops in to pick up the harvest each week. Prater emphasizes the company’s involvement within the local community.

Yet some of these decadent treats — such as southern Lemon Chess Pie from the 1820s, Strawberry Shortcake from the 1850s, or New York’s Black and White Cookies, first baked up in the Roaring 1920s — have stood the test of time. To celebrate these nostalgic sweets, this “Decades of Decadence” recipe col- lection serves up a delicious trip down memory lane with modern inf luence by Ellie K rieger, M . S., R . D., host of the Cooking Channel’s “Healthy Appetite.” “History shaped these desserts and they have stuck a round because they a re inherently delicious,” she says. “They were driven by the availability of ingredients in their day, advertising by food companies in wom- en’s magazines and advancements in food technology or appliances.” To boost nutrition and keep saturated fat in check, the recipes are updated with hearthealthy ingredients, such as low-fat yogurt, whole-grain flour and canola oil, which has the least saturated fat and most omega-3 fat of all common culinary oils. decadence, page 4 THE ONLY FINISH READY PORTABLES IN THE INDUSTRY, CUSTOM-BUILT FOR YOUR NEEDS.
