Fall!

SEPTEMBER 2017

A

s we lament over summer slipping away, the crisp fall air always energizes me with everything fall brings. September means the flurry of back to school—including the start of fall sports—with shorter days and a faster pace. This issue focuses on food and wine. In our Wine + Food Pairings story, Bend Lifestyle’s own Sarah Wolcott, wine consultant, spent time talking with local wine expert Tim Hanni, one of just 355 people in the world holding the Master of Wine (MW) certification. Together they share insight into breaking traditional rules about pairing foods and wines.

Be sure to read about exploring wines-by-the-glass as an introduction to new and different wines around town. And, as a delicious way to kick off fall, whip up the Organic All American Apple Pie recipe found in this issue. Paralleling the start of the school year, this issue also spotlights Tumalo Community School’s unique zipline and ropes course program, giving kids the chance to build confidence, stretch their limits, conquer fears and have exhilarating fun. I hope you get out and enjoy our last holiday weekend of summer, topped off with some great tasting food and wine. Thanks to our advertising partners who make this magazine possible.

BIG SKY PARK PLANS IMPROVEMENTS The Bend Park and Recreation District (BPRD) has updated their master plan for Big Sky Park in Northeast Bend. The 96-acre

community

park—located

east

of Hamby Road and north of Neff Road— played host to residents and park users July 17 in an effort to share information about the changes. The park includes both undeveloped natural areas and developed areas with restroom facilities, paths, playgrounds, sport fields and an off-leash area. The revised master plan focuses on activities providing a wider range of recreational opportunities for community members. It also aims to improve safety, increase accessibility and adapt to the changing recreational needs of the community since the first master plan was adopted 14 years ago. Highlights include improved traffic flow and parking; construction of an off-road cycling facility including bike skills courses, cyclocross and single-track trails, pump track and more; and a close relationship with Buckingham Elementary school for nature education and a new trail connection.

WINE + FOOD (CON TI N U ED)

Tim Hanni and Sarah Wolcott

Tim Hanni & Sarah Wolcott

No single person is qualified to tell you what you should, or should not, experience with your own food and wine journey.

W

ine drinkers face a constant barrage of rules regarding their enjoyment of wine with food. “Thou shalt not eat fish with

Cabernet Sauvignon,” is oftentimes considered a guiding principle when pairing wine with food. Drinking Riesling with a marbled steak is punishable by death-through-mockery in many circles. Rules may establish order in a frantic world. But, when it comes to many axioms about how to appropriately pair wine with food, it’s total chaos out there. 

The sentiment that there are classic wine and food pairings to be adhered to as a consumer is laced throughout the food and beverage world. Which begs the question: what is the historical knowledge that determined what is classic, and what is not?

- Tim Hanni

“Classic wine and food pairings just . . . aren’t,” says local Bend resident, Tim Hanni, who has devoted a lifetime of research regarding the concept of food and wine.

years, and remains a popular aperitif. “Referencing sweet wines as dessert wines doesn’t do the consumer any favors,” says Hanni. According to Hanni, the dessert wine category in the United States was created by the federal government as a tax bracket loophole, leaving many potential sweet wine drinkers to believe that they can only be enjoyed after dinner. 

The global and historical practices of pairing wine with food are not the same all over the world; the concept of “classic” isn’t very classic, as it turns out. While we live in a world of rules and regulations, there is no punishment for drinking the wines you actually want to drink with the food that you are eating. “No single person is qualified to tell you what you should, or should not, experience with your own food and wine journey,” relays Hanni.

That’s how it is for these students at Tumalo Community School. First-timer Brianni Edge had a hard time mustering up the courage to step off the platform. So, Hopper picks up the walkie-talkie and lets the team below know early cheers of encouragement are needed. “Let’s go Brianni, let’s go!” calls out a lone voice from the waiting area at the top. It’s Victoria Hansen, who’s ready for her ride. Soon the cheers rise up from the crowd below and Edge takes that big step. “It’s an accomplishment to do something you’re scared of,” says Emma Becker.  Like Greco and Hansen, this is her second trip. The zip line is available to students beginning in the 6th grade. “It’s cool and unique [to have a high ropes program at school],” adds Greco. “You get a chance to do something others don’t.”

APPLE PIE Organic All American

Filling

6-8 Granny Smith apples (depending on size) ½ cup of organic coconut sugar 2-4 tablespoons of organic unbleached flour 1 tablespoon of cinnamon 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice 2 tablespoons of organic butter finely chopped Peel and cut the apples into thick slices, place in a bowl and toss with lemon juice.  Add coconut sugar, organic butter, cinnamon and organic unbleached flour and mix.  You should see the apples starting to sweat and form a coating.  Let sit while you make the crust

Crust

2 ½  cups organic unbleached flour 10 tablespoons organic butter (very chilled and cut into tiny cubes) ½ cup organic all vegetable shortening 4-6 tablespoons cold water (I usually put ice cubes in a small bowl of water and let it sit) 1 pinch of organic pink salt Place flour in a food processor with cutting metal blade, add butter and shortening, slowly pulse your processor to cut up butter and shortening.  Add two tablespoon of water at a time and pulse a few more times.  After four tablespoons of water, check to see if the flour holds together.  The dough should look crumbly if it does not add two more tablespoons of water and pulse again.  I find I usually use six tablespoons, be sure that it does not get wet and sticky if it is too wet add a little flour and pulse.  Pour out dough onto a cutting board that is floured and press together to form a ball and knead the dough. Divide the dough in half and roll out each half of the dough and cut two circles that are 2 inches wider than you pie dish.  I use a 9-inch pie dish.  Grease and flour the pie dish and place the one circle on the bottom. Poke several holes with a fork.  Pour apples into the pie dish and cover with the other dough circle.  Press the edges together with a fork.  Cut several slits around the pie. Bake pie at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.  5 minutes before it's done you can brush melted butter and sprinkle organic coconut sugar on top, pop back in the oven for remaining 5 minutes to form a glaze.

Enjoy

Parting Thoughts

ARTICLE GREGG MORRIS | PHOTOGRAPHY GARY CALICOTT

I

am a cyclist. That very fact has been ingrained in my soul since I first put my six-year-old feet to the pedals of my Schwinn Scrambler and

darted off to school. It became all but solidified when my parents first took me to the BMX track. When I was 14-years-old, a cycling group rode past the park just as I finished playing tennis with some friends. For reasons unknowing, I hopped on my bike, caught up to the group, and rode 20 miles until I realized how far I was from home. I am a cyclist. It shows in the ratio of bikes to cars in our garage (nine to two). I wear my Commute Options Board of Directors badge proudly; along with the scar from my first bike crash. And, I take pride in the days or weeks I go without starting a car. I am also a backpacker. The ridiculous number of backpacks hanging on my garage wall, the line of sleeping bags on the shelf, and the stacked tents—organized by season and number of occupants—tell the story of my love of sleeping outdoors. So, it’s no wonder I have taken to bicycle touring. While I have often lamented about having to drive to get to the woods, I have deemed it a necessary evil. Therefore, the pure joy of packing my bike trailer, opening the garage door, and heading towards the Three Sisters

BICYCLE TOURING

Wilderness— self-powered—is borderline uncontainable. On a summer’s Saturday, I loaded my trailer while sipping tea, left the house at my own leisure, and headed through town and up Century Drive. The unbridled sense of freedom blocks out the soreness in my legs as I pedaled mostly uphill towards Mount Bachelor. Huffing and puffing quickly turned to smiles and relief as I crested near Dutchman Flats and finished my ride downhill. I set up camp for the night amongst some South Sister climbers at Devil's Lake. Maybe next time I’ll include a summit in my adventure. But, as my weekend is only two days long, a bike ride, small hike around the lake, and peaceful night under the stars would have to do. Like any good adventure, the planning for the next one took place that night. A multi-day excursion, perhaps along one of Oregon’s Scenic Bikeways, would land on the calendar shortly after returning home.
