EVOO Cannon Beach - Ned Ludd Pop-Up!

Our Chef de Cuisine, Rob Baki will be heading to the Coast on June 26 for a "Ned Ludd Pop-Up" at EVOO on Cannon Beach.  Menu and details are available below if you're in the area and would like to have the Ned Ludd experience, but don't make it to Portland often.

an excerpt from their website...

"Chef Bob had an incredible day at the Portland Restaurant, NED LUDD, during our winter break this year. Bob enjoyed everything about this restaurant so when they said “yes,” they would become a “pop-up” restaurant at our location, Bob jumped.  So tonight, we welcome the opportunity to introduce you to one of our new favorite places. In addition, Chef Bob has the honor of being Chef Rob’s sous chef during the evening with some commentary versus “the show.” Read more about the Chef Rob and NED LUDD below to see why we were captivated by the experience at the restaurant. Read about the winter break experience Chef Bob had at this restaurant here."

But make no mistake, even though there are idyllic moments, the farmer and food blogger behind Tumbleweed Farm in Hood River County, can tell you it’s tough work getting food from field to table. Thankfully, her new cookbook Dishing Up the Dirt highlights the very best of seasonal vegetables and none of the recipes are hard to cook. Andrea will be at Elder Hall in June for Book Fete and she talked to us about how she developed the recipes for her first ever cookbook and what her guilty pleasure foods are. Q&A BELOW

CELEBRATE OREGON WINE MONTH

CELEBRATE OREGON WINE MONTH

All wines come from someplace, but the best wines can only come from an extraordinary place. Oregon is a world-class wine region with more than 700 wineries and more than 1,000 vineyards growing 72 grape varieties. Each year we focus on bringing you something new and amazing from an Oregon producer that you may or may have heard about or a wine or varietal you haven't tried.  We love the unexpected and we hope you do too. This year we are highlighting a different varietal each week of May from 5 different producers. 

Week 1: Gamay
Week 2: Riesling
Week 3: Pinot Noir
Week 4: Chardonnay

We'll be offering wine flights of each variety each week of May for $20 a flight. Or you can order them all by the glass too if you'd rather. Either way it's a great time to branch out and taste something new!

Check out our own Jason French pairing one of his favorite wines, Riesling, with a Bay Shrimp Pasta dish HERE. Recipe included!

I LOVE GAMAY

It’s time to give Oregon Gamay Noir its due. I Love Gamay is a first of its kind event that brings together adventurous wine lovers and Oregon Gamay producers for a great excuse to throw a party celebrating our favorite under-the-radar varietal. 

Our Gathering Space, Elder Hall plays host to two days of events that lets you get to know Oregon Gamay, including an all Oregon Gamay tasting salon on day one and a multi-course dinner featuring legendary Portland chefs, Jason French and Cathy Whims with some storied local wine veterans on day two. Local producers and wine experts will be on hand to offer up their knowledge on this lesser known gem. Yes, Oregon Pinot Noir has earned its place in wine history, but we want to blow the lid off Oregon’s other noir rouge grape!

Join us for either one or both of our inaugural I Love Gamay events that will be held on May 1st and May 2nd, 2017.
