The iconic Tumalo Feed Co. is also hosting a special fixed-price dinner, if that term even applies to the down home steak house where sides are served in baskets. The restaurant celebrates 20 years in Tumalo on Feb. 13 with a $75-a-head dinner that begins with a no-host "howdy hour" at 6 p.m. A prime rib and scampi dinner follows. The evening culminates with live music and dancing. Dress is "cowboy formal" according to TFC and seats are limited to 130 reservations.
Bend's foodie scene isn't just limited to restaurants - a local author and New York-based food stylist who recently penned a cookbook together will be at Newport Market. Former Shape senior editor and Bend resident Suzanne Schlosberg and Real Simple food stylist Sara Quessenberry will be signing their book, The Good Neighbor Cookbook next Saturday. The book is organized by occasion - perfect for those who routinely host holiday meals or dinner parties and need a shake-up. The book includes a "Get Well Soon" chapter, with immune system-boosting foods - great for those of us who resort to downing a can of chicken noodle soup - as well as chapters on foods for book clubs and easy dishes for block parties and barbeques. Schlosberg has previously written or co-written ten books and has appeared in numerous national magazines. Meet the local writer and her co-author at Newport Market on 1121 NW Newport Ave Sat. Feb 5 from 3-5 p.m.
