Lotus Farm to Table, Courtney Rozsas‘s 32-seat just-so restaurant/teahouse in Media, PA, is already known for its naturally fresh, locally grown menu options, but has strengthened its pledge to the farm-to-table movement with the addition of Chef Michael Giletto.
Giletto cut his teeth at a his family-owned and operated blueberry farm in Central, NJ, and also did time at golf clubs and catering gigs in the ‘burbs. But Lotus is clearly a break for him: He hopes to incorporate his food philosophy by using organic, natural, fresh, local foods in his seasonal menus. Giletto will also be incorporating Lotus’ tea vibe into his menu with his tea-infused duck breast and chrysanthemum tea-smoked tuna. Along with the philosophies and infusions, he makes his own Agavi butter, mozzarella and ricotta cheeses. Giletto’s in the kitchen at Lotus now.
