Show 116, April 4, 2015: Market Chef Shelly Register, A Market, Newport Beach

Shelly RegisterChef Shelly Register is the accomplished Market Chef for A Market located in a highly visible historic building on West Coast Highway in Newport Beach next to A Restaurant (the former Arches location.) It’s a dazzling gourmet convenience store with freshly-prepared upmarket sandwiches, incredible baked goods and desserts, cheeses, coffee, craft beer and premium wine. No product is carried in the store that hasn’t received Chef Sherry’s personal seal of approval.

A lunch standard is the “My Favorite” sandwich. It’s turkey, avocado, pear and ginger marmalade, honey mustard and watercress on marbled corn rye. Soups are prepared in-house daily. Thursday’s featured soup, for example, is White Bean, Kale and Chicken Italian Sausage.

Dessert fans, listen up…If you want to be tempted please take a look at A Market’s vanilla cake with milk chocolate frosting. The photo is posted on our Instagram @SoCalRestaurantShow! Now that’s a worthy guilty pleasure and not overly sweet…

Chef Shelly joins us as our official tour guide of the culinary pleasures of A Market.
