Sydney’s Lunch: Winter Squash Tacos

March 2, 2020

If anyone inspires recipe envy in the MALT lunchroom, it’s major gifts associate Sydney Weisbach.

With a degree in agro-economics, and years of restaurant management on her resume — including at our beloved local Side Street Kitchen and The Station House — Sydney’s lunches are as yummy as they are beautiful.

A locavore through and through, Sydney sources her ingredients from MALT ranches as much as she can. So, without further ado, here is a quick and easy recipe for one of Sydney’s current favorite lunchtime dishes: winter squash tacos, complete with squash, radishes and cream from MALT-protected lands.
