Your Host, Chef Tamara Murphy


Trained in NYC and drawn to the Northwest by its bounty of fresh ingredients and budding artisan producers in 1987, chef/author Tamara Murphy has traveled the country to share the important message of local, sustainable food. This much honored and always inventive James Beard Award Winner was also one of Food and Wine magazine’s career picks for Ten Best New Chefs in America. Tamara is the former owner of Brasa restaurant and the current owner of Elliott Bay Café (two locations) and The Reading Room.  Her new restaurant Terra Plata will open on Capitol Hill soon.

Her most recent accomplishment was the release of her first book TENDER, which speaks to her many years of working with local farms and the art of cooking simply and within the seasons.

TENDER will be available for purchase at this event with $8 of every sale benefiting the Trust!
