This week's featured recipe and tips by:

Tammy McAfee

Culinary Resource Coordinator at Central Market Poulsbo

Tammy started dinner-party clubs in the late 1980s with other couples where the goal was to cook new types of food, enjoy an evening with friends and get some feedback. She is passionate about finding new ingredients and products to experiment with – guilt free! Her favorite aspect of the Resource Center is introducing customers to simple concepts - “It’s empowering for those who didn’t grow up cooking to learn some techniques,” she said. With two teens, Tammy has a lot of opportunities to cook for the swim and track teams and, she said, "they'll eat anything!"

​Delicious over fresh fettuccine or a grilled steak.  Pairs well with a lovely Italian Sangiovese wine.

Exceptional mushroom varieties now available such as bunashimeji, maitake or chanterelle and they will  create a standout sauce.

Make sure to use a wine you'll enjoy drinking with this meal!
