Culinary Resource Coordinator at Central Market Mill Creek

Terra, named Mill Creek’s Culinary Coordinator in May 2014, was most recently the assistant manager of the extensive Deli at Central Market Shoreline.  She’s been in the restaurant business for more than 20 years. In college, she realized she coveted her cookbooks more than her school books, and the rest is history. She loves to share recipe ideas and ingredient tips with customers. “Nothing is more satisfying than introducing people to foods that they absolutely love and otherwise may never have come across.” She has a particular affinity for home-style comfort and breakfast foods with unusual ingredients and for finding new uses for everyday ingredients.

Fresh berries and Double Devon cream, your favorite preserves or make strawberry shortcakes.
