Famous chef Poppy Tooker at Phinney Farmers Market

June 16th, 2009 · Comments

Nationally famous chef Poppy Tooker from New Orleans comes to the Phinney Farmers Market on Friday, June 19 at 4 p.m.

Poppy Tooker has been featured on numerous TV shows and documentaries, including Savoring the World and Simple Living, the History Channel’s Holiday Foods episode of “America Eats” and a “Throwdown” with Bobby Flay, where her famous seafood gumbo proved unbeatable on the popular Food Network show! Poppy will be cooking up a big pot of gumbo at Phinney, showing shoppers how to use our own seasonal farm ingredients to make a fantastic, richly-flavored stew (and yes, samples will be given out). This FREE event is not to be missed! Copies of Poppy’s new cookbook will also be available for purchase.

The Phinney Farmers Market takes place from 3-7 p.m. every Friday through Oct. 2 in the lower lot at the Phinney Neighborhood Center, 67th and Phinney Ave N. The market is operated by the Neighborhood Farmers Market Alliance. For more info, see www.seattlefarmersmarkets.org.

    Not only that, but I believe the fabulous local Cajun band, Folichon, will be providing tunes during the afternoon to support the theme!
