A Taste From Our Kitchens by Teri Hiben

There are so many things I have enjoyed about working at Marcel’s for the past 6 years – yes, it’s been 6 years!  I learn so much interacting with our talented and generous chefs who share their tips and recipes.  It’s been a joy to work alongside so many great people here on staff who have become dear friends.  And I am thankful to continue to get to know so many of you as you come through the store, talking food and entertaining, sharing recipes.  One of my favorite roles has been sharing one of my recipes during our weekly Tuesday demos.  Did you know we have free demos every Tuesday?  One of us, on staff, at Marcel’s prepares a favorite dish each Tuesday between 11am and 2pm.  Everyone is welcome to stop in for a quick taste, grab the recipe, or to sit and enjoy a bite while watching the entire process as we make the entrée, side dish, appetizer or dessert.

And, for those who are working or otherwise unable to come to our demos, each demonstrated recipe is available on our website.  Over the years we have compiled quite a nice collection of recipes from these demos.  Also on the site are chef recipes for you to enjoy making and serving at home.  Some of these dishes have become favorites in my home.  Have you tried Janie’s Penne with Beef and Arugula?  Jill’s Mussels with White Wine?  Or Rita’s Mardi Gras Jambalaya?  I highly recommend them – and so many others!

With the start of the fall schedule, our Tuesday demos are again in full swing.  Here’s what’s ahead in the next weeks:

Aug. 29 Julie’s Easy Lemon Sole Meunier

Sept. 5 Sharon’s Chicken with Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce

Sept. 12 Deb’s Quick and Simple Asian Tilapia

Sept. 19 Julie’s Wheatberry Waffles

And on Sept. 26, our 6th birthday, I’ll be dishing up a special Anniversary treat! Please join us in the kitchen on Tuesdays.
