His family is in Oregon but his dish inspired by his mother will keep customers at Mad Fox Brewing Company smiling for the holidays.
With his family thousands of miles away in Oregon, Andrew Dixon, executive chef at Mad Fox Brewing Company, has a recipe that rekindles his memories of holiday dinners. Dixon, who grew up vegetarian, said his mom always made different lasagnas with vegetables. He wanted to create one for the menu but lasagnas don’t always hold and lack freshness. For the last 10 years Dixon has fiddled with his butternut squash cannelloni and has finally perfected it. “This is something like what my mom would make,” Dixon said. “It’s almost like a vegetarian lasagna.” Dixon added the dish to the menu at Mad Fox in September and says all of the ingredients are made in house.
