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!”

  • ​Pile it on plank-grilled salmon or grilled rib-eye steaks.
  • Or serve as an appetizer with warm tortilla chips.

​When shaving kernels from the corn, stand cob on a cutting board and hold the top.  Tip the corn as close to the board as comfortable and cut down the length of the cob closest to the board.  Twist cob and repeat until done.  By cutting with the corn on an angle you really help contain the kernels!
