Groman produce still

Have you ever walked through the produce department and felt less-than-confident about how to choose the best stuff?

In a new 2 Minute Tip video, below, sponsored by our beloved Berkeley Bowl, Hugh Groman, who runs two successful catering companies and a restaurant in Berkeley, advises us on how to use sight, smell, touch, and even sound to choose our fruits and vegetables.

This short video blog is part of the 2-Minute Tips video series, published by Berkeleyside and Nosh, in which Groman offers practical guidance from a professional to us home cooks and hosts. Catch up on the previous 2-minute videos in the series.
