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. 

A delightful autumn recipe that is delicious served over fresh pasta. Add sliced steak or shredded chicken for a protein boost.

Try a selection of mushrooms like oyster, chanterelle, maitake, portobello, bunashimeji or porcini to bring variety to this dish.
A dry marsala such as Opici will be great for both cooking with and sipping with dinner.
