Resource Center
Coordinator,
Central Market
Mill Creek

After realizing that cooking was what she did to cheer herself up after leaving her job in a law firm, Jenny changed course. She graduated from Seattle Culinary Academy at Seattle Central Community College and worked as both a line cook and a pastry chef at places like Macrina Bakery, Kaspar’s Restaurant and Nell’s Restaurant in Greenlake. She became culinary coordinator at Central Market Mill Creek in 2006. She is especially interested in local and seasonal cooking – and anything her children, born in 2006 and 2009, will eat!

 For breakfast or brunch, serve with Crustless Quiche with Spinach and Mushrooms.

For dinner, make up a big pot of Chorizo Crockpot Chili!
