Chef’s Fall Recipes: Matthew Schindler’s Peacock Alley Salad with Rooftop Kale

Chef Matt likes to take simple ingredients and prepare them in the best way to bring out their natural flavors. He then pairs these items with other ingredients that complement while keeping the dishes simple and straight forward. Understanding the long hours, dedication and sacrifice required to be a chef, Matt also believes in a work life balance where he enjoys such hobbies as scuba diving, cycling and training for triathlons with his wife.

He offered his Peacock Alley Salad with Rooftop Kale. The kale comes from the Waldorf’s new rooftop garden. It sits on a gorgeous 20th floor space with the most beautiful views of the Chrysler Building.  Chef Matt heads to the roof daily to pick garden items and use them in daily specials.
