Chef demos at Everett market

The Everett Farmers Market is serving something different this summer: demonstrations by area chefs each Sunday.

The first guest chef is “Oyster Bill” Whitbeck who will be at the market at 3 p.m. Sunday preparing clams and mussels Mediterranean style and demonstrating oyster shucking.

The proprietor of the the Widow’s Kitchen, Lynne Rovito, will barbecue the oysters and stir in some of her “special sauce.”

The Everett Farmers Market, which is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays through September, is at 1600 W. Marine View Drive, three blocks north of the Navy base.

‘KCTS Cooks’

A range of fare reflecting KCTS viewers’ ethnically diverse heritages and culinary tastes is featured in the “KCTS Cooks” special.

The show will air at 2 p.m. June 26 and is hosted by KCTS’s George Ray and chef Brian Poor, local culinary expert and restaurant consultant.

The “KCTS Cooks: Ethnic Foods” companion cookbook includes all of the recipes featured in the special, plus more than 250 additional recipes contributed by viewers in Washington and British Columbia. The cookbook will be offered as a pledge premium during broadcasts.

Viewers can catch encore broadcasts of two other KCTS cooking specials in June. “KCTS Cooks: Comfort Foods” will air at 2 p.m. June 5. “KCTS Chefs 2004” airs at 2 p.m. June 12.

Don’t guess with leftovers

Remembering how long leftovers have been in the refrigerator is a problem most people face nearly everyday. Miscalculating this information can lead to food poisoning.

Take the guesswork out of leftovers with a free, downloadable refrigerator calculator from www.homefoodsafety.org.

The printer-friendly chart lists popular leftovers along with each food’s recommended shelf life. Post it on the refrigerator door as a helpful reminder.
