It's Always 'Sunny' at Bend's New Italian Food Cart

Chef and co-owner of Sunny Yoga Kitchen expands with a new food cart at The Ale Apothecary
Disclosure: I am still relishing in a euphoric state induced by cuisine from Sunny's Carrello. Maybe it was the velvety texture of the house-made Semolina pasta.

Salute Italian Opens Downtown

Bond Street now home to contemporary Italian food
You may have noticed a vacancy along Bond Street after the folks at Citizen sold their restaurant. While the sellers, who also own Bowtie Catering, left the downtown spot to focus on their growing catering services, a new restaurant has been brewing with only speculation as to who or what would be taking its place—until now.

Plant-Based Eatery and Juice Spot in the Works

Deeply Rooted expected to open in March
It's been only a short time since the abrupt closing of Bad Wolf Bakery, but according to a display in the otherwise covered-up windows, Deeply Rooted will open as a juice, food and craft spirits hub. Deeply Rooted will serve as a plant-based restaurant serving locally-sourced fresh-pressed juice, specialty food items and signature craft cocktails, according to the juicery's Instagram page.

Local Grocery Chain Expands to Terrebonne

Rudy's Markets—the grocery company that operates Bend's Newport Avenue Market—has added a third store to its profile. On Jan. 2, Rudy's took over the Thriftway grocery store in Terrebonne, renaming it Oliver Lemon's.

Winter's Healing Foods (and Supplements)

When it comes to what supports winter health, misconceptions and missteps abound
In winter, the days are dark and people tend to spend a lot more time inside. Even those Central Oregonians who extol the virtues of the outdoors for everything from spiritual to physical health tend to spend more time indoors than they do in the summertime.

Beyond Campfire Cooking

Dutch oven cooking clinic offered at Tumalo Creek
When I think of 'camping' and 'cooking,' I imagine an Igloo full of hot dogs, frozen burger patties, and, for special occasions, a carton of eggs and bagged hash browns. The pros at Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe have spent their fair share of cooking on riverbanks and remote forest locales, mastering the art of cooking with coals and definitely without beef franks.

Food Trends in 2020

Step aside, White Claw: Alcoholic still water just rolled in
This past decade has graced us with kombucha, avocado toast, probiotics and a plethora of plant-based proteins—but these are the exciting food trends we can look forward to in the year ahead.

More Tacos, Please

Vida y Tacos is Bend's newest taco hub
If there's one thing that Bend loves more than craft beer and working remotely, it's tacos. With that being said, there's yet another source for traditional and unique street tacos.

Tween Baker Represents Bend

French macaron class leads local kid to Food Network show
It may have blossomed when he was a baby sitting on the counter, watching his parents make his baby food—but whatever it is, Reggie Strom definitely has a passion for baking. By the time Strom was a toddler he was in the kitchen with his grandma.

The Suttle Lodge's Guest Chef Series Goes International

It's already known for pulling in some top regional talent for its chef series, but this year, The Suttle Lodge and Boathouse is casting an even wider net.
