Trio’s Restaurant Joins Arkansas Soybean Producers In Statewide Agriculture Campaign
Arkansas soybean producers educate Arkansans about the soybean industry through local restaurant partnerships
LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Jan. 19, 2017 – Trio’s Restaurant has partnered with the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board’s educational food program, the Kitchen|Fields Table Tour. Located in Little Rock, Trio’s Restaurant is serving a feature dish during January to promote the Arkansas soybean industry. The Kitchen|Fields Table Tour was developed to encourage Arkansans to eat more soy foods and soy-fed protein, such as pork, beef, turkey and chicken.
Executive Chef and Owner of Trio’s Restaurant, Capi Peck, has created a soybean-inspired dish for the Kitchen|Fields Table Tour – herbed salad with grapefruit-cardamom vinaigrette, which includes edamame, avocado, scallions, pistachios and mint leaves.
“We are honored to be a restaurant partner and serve a dish that supports our local Arkansas farmers. When our guests eat the feature dish this month, they are learning agriculture facts about how soybeans are used in the kitchen and in the animal ag industry,” said Capi Peck, owner and executive chef of Trio’s Restaurant.
The Kitchen|Fields Table Tour has exclusively partnered with six Arkansas restaurants across the state. During each restaurants’ monthly feature, a unique dish centered around soybeans is served. Through the table tour, the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board continues to educate and make Arkansans aware of the impact they have on our state’s $2 billion soybean industry.
The partner restaurants and feature schedule for the 2017 Kitchen|Fields Table Tour includes:
● Trio’s Restaurant, Little Rock: January
● J Town’s Grill, Jonesboro: February
● Le Petite Cajun Bistro, Stuttgart: March
● Taylor’s Steakhouse, Dumas: April
