The Life and Legacy of Bill Johnson

When Bill first came to us back in 2001, he was a spry 77-years-old and looking for his next challenge. Bill was assigned a kitchen assistant shift on Tuesdays, and never looked back.

One of our chefs learned this recipe from a former co-worker who was from Mexico. This is the way his mom made posole when he was growing up. We think it is truly something special! It’s best if you can make it a day ahead of time to really let the flavor develop.
