In each of our Markets you will find, near Produce and within shouting distance of our Fish Markets, a Culinary Resource Center whose sole purpose is to inspire the cook in you.
Whether you want some ideas for everyday meals, or for entertaining – or just want a simple question answered – this is the place to go. Every day, our culinary staff shares their love of food and cooking with our customers, demonstrating recipes and techniques, handing out samples to taste, helping customers figure out what recipe or product is perfect for what, and even helping locate products in the store.
Our culinary staff have built a library of more than 2,000 tried-and-trusted recipes for every skill level, interest and occasion. All our recipes are available online. Printed recipes, and even special binders to keep them in, are available at the resource centers.
Each week, one of our recipes is selected as the “Featured Recipe” to be demonstrated or available at all our stores. The coordinator who contributed that recipe offers suggestions on what to serve it with, and tips from their own personal experience as cooks. You can have that Featured Recipe emailed to you weekly. Also, check out our Culinary Video section to see the coordinators demonstrating techniques and recipes.
The culinary staff is dedicated to inspiring the cook in you. Whether you pick up a recipe in person or you browse our recipes online, they want to make sure that the experience provided by great food continues into the kitchen and onto the table.
