Don’t Forget Dad + Summer Fun at Hawks

Hawks Family of Restaurants ~ June Newsletter Welcome Summer! It’s always so exciting to see the first of the summer fruits and vegetables popping up in our kitchens. So far I’ve seen white corn and cherries, which is a sure sign heirloom tomatoes and peaches will soon be walking through our doors. If I had to pick a season, I think this would be it; the flavors and colors of summer produce are so vibrant, they really don’t require much. It’s a time to lighten up our cooking style and let nature shine. We have some seriously fun events planned this …

He got the idea after hearing about the …
