Cooking with local ingredients has delicious results as Chef Magaña demonstrated on Good Morning Northwest – KAPP/KVEW this morning.
The Washington Wine Country chef is “a culinarian with no limits, eager to create the perfect pairing with the fruit of his neighbors and a glass from a winemaker down the street.”
We at Chukar feel privileged to be Chef Magaña’s neighbor and to taste the incredible cherry creations that come out of his kitchen. Today he wowed us with Macadamia Nut and Cumin Crusted Salmon with Chukar’s Peach Cherry Salsa, Garlic Scampi with Chukar’s Cherry Pomegranate Chutney, and Chocolate Cupcakes filled with Chukar’s Chocolate Cherry Dessert Sauce. He’s been kind enough to let us share his recipes.

A fruitful mélange of pomegranate, cherries, and apples. Serve over slices of roast beef, turkey, or ham for a simple yet delectable dinner.
Lusciously rich chocolate sauce with bits of tart cherries and cherry nuances throughout.
Our medium heat salsa packed with whole cherries, peach chunks, and jalapeños. Delicious on halibut tacos, chicken tostadas, and black bean corn chips.
