Thanksgiving Inspiration ~ Tami Mitchell, Dine-In Diva Personal Chef Service

~ erin molnar, assistant markets manager

I met, and initially got to know, Tami as a regular market customer. Clearly she loved good food, especially good local food. Then Tami became a regular at the food swaps. My impression that Tami was an amazing cook was confirmed, and has been over and over again since then. I also really like Tami’s style – she has an appreciation for well-crafted basics, but also has a creative flair that gives new preparations, ingredients and flavor combinations a chance, more often than not with amazing results. So, of course, when I wanted to know what people were going to put on their T-Day tables, Tami came to mind. 

Here is the list of recipe links that Tami shared with us.

Spatchcocked Turkey – It cooks fast and it’s easy to do.

Celery, Date, Walnut, Pecorino Salad – Sweet, Salty, Crunchy – a light, delicious foil to all of the usual rich dishes on the table.

Fig, Almond Bread Stuffing with Fennel – Figs and Fennel are two of my favorite things
Pomegranate Balsamic Glazed Carrots  – fantastic and extra beautiful with purple carrots from the farmers market
Hot and Spicy Cranberry Chutney – sure, there’s no can rings, but there is a lot more flavor
Once again, the transcription of the menu has left me drooling!
Thanks Tami!!
