Re: “Terrebonne Depot Gets New Owners & Menu

Their business seems getting better and better under the supervision of new owners that got some good taste for passion. Bet they got some good meals to serve.

Re: “A Little Baja in Bend

Looks like another new food cart to check out. I don't like those with too much flavoring.

Re: “Taste of Belgium

I took a deep breath when I read this piece of nonsense review of Trinity. "A lightly sweet banana aroma". "A beautiful mix of banana and clove". What?? "An explosion of coriander ....leading to citrus". Huh? This is a cascading rubbish of "tangy botanical qualities ... " shallow writing gush, striving to seek something that is not there. There's no way a single yeast can bring out such a plethora of dreamlike different flavors all in one mouthful. Only in an imagination bereft of reality can such a taste be experienced. Calm down.

Re: “La Magie Bakery Cafe Closes

Di, you just havent heard people call you a horrible boss because you never have them the respect and attention necessary to listen. I can honestly say that when I worked at this job, the only benefit I found after was the fact that I knew what not to look for in an employer. Stop being fake when there are 15+ people that agree with your awful treatment.

Re: “The Food Cart Guy

Good for you and your family to recover. Be strong, that's what private enterprise is all about. You can become more than just your own success, you can be an inspiration for others. That will be your greatest achievement.

Re: “La Magie Bakery Cafe Closes

I worked at La Magie years ago and to this day it was the worst job I've ever had. Di Long treats her employees with a complete lack of respect and did plenty of shady and unethical things while I was employed. Good riddance!

Re: “The Rhubarb Awakens

When I was a kid, my mom made some jelly with strawberries and rhubarb. I don't have the recipe, but it was exceptional.

The calcium iron oxalates in the leaves are what makes the leaves poisonous. It's the same chemicals that taste bitter and prevent iron absorption in spinach and chard. When I took plant anatomy in college, one of the things we did was examine dissected banana leaves to see the clear crystals of oxalates in them. One of the oxalates called whewellite, is a major constituent of kidney stones.

Re: “La Magie Bakery Cafe Closes

If anyone could get the Eggs Benedict recipe from the owner, that would be awesome! It was my husbands favorite meal from anywhere and Id like to make it for him. I had no idea they were even closing, actually we were planning to go there for the last month for Mothers Day.

Are they only open select days? I went by around Noon yesterday and the place was dark with no vehicles.

Re: “La Magie Bakery Cafe Closes

Sources are former employees, as is clearly noted in the original article and the post here. Maybe you should talk to them. --Michael Funke

Re: “La Magie Bakery Cafe Closes

Ive worked at La Maggie in the past, and Di never treated her employees (maybe besides a select few) with respect or kindness. They are just warm bodies to her

Re: “La Magie Bakery Cafe Closes

I am not sure where you got your sources. When the sale of the bakery was 75% for sure, I told all my employees. This gave them one week notice while we were open, and I would hire them for another week to help with the move, giving all employees two weeks notice. Some were hired at my other restaurant, some found other jobs. For the most part, I tried my best to make sure my employees were taken care of. I have been in the restaurant business for a very long time, as you can tell from my restaurants, I do not have a very high turnover rate. I have never been called a horrible boss or human being. Reading some of these articles and comments, really hurts. I worked really hard to build this bakery, due to personal reasons, yes, I sold it. I dont want to bore people with my reasons, it was very sad and hard for me to make the decision, and I would like everyone to respect that. I enjoyed every moment of it, all the cakes Ive made and all the challenges it gave me. I will continue to do my best to find great things to bring to this community. Thank-you for your continued support.

Re: “La Magie Bakery Cafe Closes

Well, I checked with BOLI and the WARN Act does not cover workplaces with 100 or more employees, which I doubt they had at this bakery. If there were 100+ workers, advance notice would be legally required. Of course, nothing prevents an employer from providing advance notice. That could have been done by this boss. It would have been the right thing to do. Nice cupcakes are no substitute for treating workers with some dignity. BOLI does provide legal ways to get back pay if any of these workers are owed money. I realize that there are very few restaurants where the workers have a union, but it is still worth noting that having a union can protect workers and even contractually provide advance notification on closings. I hope these former employees of La Magie can find jobs fast and are perhaps hired by new owners in this space. This isn't the first time workers in Bend's food and beverage industry have been treated poorly by a boss and unfortunately it will not be the last. Organizing together rather than going it alone can help. --Michael Funke

Re: “La Magie Bakery Cafe Closes

Well, I was sad to hear La Magie was closing. But now I am pissed to hear that workers were treated so poorly by their ex-boss. Shame on her. They should contact BOLI. Not sure how big/small business has to be before "advance notice" requirement kicks in. Whatever Di Long does next in town, count me out. There are plenty of good places to eat in town where employees are treated with respect and dignity. She should ask around and learn some lessons. --Michael Funke
