Boy it's been a while since I made a post. The good news is it's because I've been up to a few things!
This month the Holiday Brochure I photographed for Town & Country markets is out in stores! The brochure is located in the deli section of their 6 stores including Ballard Market, Shoreline Central Market, Poulsbo Central Market, Mill Creek Central Market, and the original & long standing Town & Country Market on Bainbridge Island. In addition to the brochure, another full page ad for Town & Country markets that I photographed is running in Edible Seattle Magazine this month! The theme of this brochure is "Delectably Simple Party Foods" and features 3 easy appetizer platters to make at home with simple & savory appetizers made with fresh ingredients from their stores as well as wine, beer & cheese pairings and 3 holiday drink recipes. Each appetizer platter lists the recipes as well as where in the stores the ingredients are located- making it super easy to throw together a delectable tray for parties & get togethers. There are platter suggestions but of course you can mix & match.
Platter #1 Cherry chipotle cheese. Crab artichoke mushrooms. Herb shrimp popovers.
Platter #2- Baked feta. Mini sausage skewers. Stuffed peppadews.
Platter#3- Saint Agur spread. Cheery cheese cups. Butter rum pecans.
My favorite part about the brochure is that all of the recipes were submitted by employees of Town & Country Markets! I have so much fun working with those guys! They are an outstanding group of people and a total joy to be around. I also love being near the test kitchen and "sampling" some of the unbelievable things they make for lunch. Town & Country is very committed to the community and their focus on fresh ingredients and sustainable practices. I grew up near the original Town & Country Market on Bainbridge Island. It's an Island staple.
