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!”

Take this stir-fry up a notch by offering egg rolls on the side and a bit of pickled ginger.

​Feel free to experiment with the types of vegetables.  While carrot, cabbage and onion are traditional, branch out and add lotus root, fresh water chestnuts and shiitake mushrooms. This is the perfect recipe to try some new veggies!
