“I always avoided the dentist until I met Dr. Arredondo. I had an actual fear and would only go in when I had tooth pain. I had heard about Dr. Arredondo through a co-worker and thought I’d give him a try. I scheduled a comprehensive exam and found I needed quite a bit of work. I was nervous at first, but with each appointment I started to look forward to the next, knowing I was ensuring the health and longevity of my teeth. Dr. Arredondo helped me get over my fear of dentists and has helped give me confidence through an amazing smile. Thank you Dr. Arredondo and your amazing staff!!” - Brian Lee, Radio DJ from 99.7 The Bull

IT’S INTERESTING HOW FAVORITE FOODS CAN BRING BACK HAPPY MEMORIES AND BECOME FAMILY TRADITIONS. On a recent vacation to Michigan, we had a long-awaited family get together with more than 50 of us. The spread of home-cooked food did not disappoint—with many well-loved Polish recipes handed down from my mom and as always, including at least five pies. Here in Bend, our family has made many of our favorite dishes a tradition. Every Christmas Eve is celebrated with my mother-in-law’s spinach soup recipe. Every camping trip to the coast is topped off with Pollo a la Crema around the campfire. Birthdays often include Banana Split Cake. This issue showcases food and wine, from favorite dishes of local chefs, to Oregon-New Zealand wine comparisons, to festive Halloween drinks. Check out local celebrity Donna Britt’s favorite picks for the kitchen. And if you’re feeling like a road trip this fall, read about a u-pick excursion to a plentiful orchard in the Hood River Valley.

HOPS & VINES

WINE HERE AND THERE COMPARING VARIETALS FROM OREGON AND NEW ZEALAND ARTICLE SARAH WOLCOTT THE OREGON WINE LANDSCAPE IS SPECTACULAR: VINEYARDS ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE STATE ARE LOCATED CLOSE TO MANY RECREATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES LIKE HIKING, FISHING, AND CYCLING. The New Zealand wine landscape is similar. Mountains, rivers, lakes, and the ocean surround the country’s grape growing regions on both islands. Both Oregon and New Zealand have signature grape varieties–Pinot Gris in Oregon and New Zealand’s Sauvignon Blanc. By volume, these varieties take precedence, but there’s another white wine that both do very well: Chardonnay.

Rumor has it a cutting of Pinot Noir from the historic Domaine de la RomanéConti estate in Burgundy made its way to New Zealand in the 70s via an industrious rugby player. Fast forward to today and Pinot Noir is the second most planted grape variety in New Zealand. Pinot Noir is also the most heralded wine produced in Oregon.

MARCELO BENTO

WHO IS MARCELO BENTO? Born and raised in Portugal, Marcelo Bento learned how to make traditional Portuguese cuisine as a child from his mom and his grandmother, who owned a restaurant in Lisbon. In college, Bento studied hospitality management in his home country, and started working in hotels at the age of 18. He went on to manage a restaurant in Lisbon, working alongside a chef who further sparked his interest in creating authentic food. In 2014, Bento moved to Bend to work at Sintra Restaurant (originally Café Sintra), founded in 2000 by his uncle Manuel Dos Santos. WHAT KIND OF FOOD DO YOU CREATE AT SINTRA RESTAURANT? At Sintra Restaurant, Bento creates popular Portuguese dishes with his own twists. “Sometimes we can’t get all the ingredients here that you find in Portugal, so we innovate with American ingredients,” says Bento. He paints Portuguese cuisine as, “Simple food; grilled, fresh, and crisp. It’s food that doesn’t require a ton of seasoning.”   Spanish influences can be found throughout the menu as well, in tapas dishes and chilled soups like gazpacho. Their pastries

Ovos á Portuguesa

are made entirely from scratch, inspired from those of his childhood in Portugal. FAVORITE DISH ON THE MENU? Bento enthusiastically describes Ovos á Portuguesa, a bold and flavorful traditional Portuguese dish comprised of sautéed sweet peppers and red onion, diced linguiça, topped with two poached eggs, a spicy tomato sauce, and cilantro. It’s served alongside two slices of grilled bread with extra virgin olive oil, as well as potatoes roasted with rosemary, paprika, garlic, and white wine. “It’s a mix of a lot of amazing flavors and colors that when combined, (they) look just like the Portuguese flag,” he says.

Island Style Wrap

WHO IS CORRINE O’SHEA? Corrine O’Shea, owner of Salud Raw Foods, visited Bend 15 years ago and never left. Originally from the San Juan Islands, Corrine was raised to appreciate simple, natural food. Before her brick and mortar location, Salud was a Facebook page for locals to request vegan and specialty-diet desserts. “I would use the kitchen at Nancy P’s after hours and deliver desserts to customers the next day,” says O’Shea of Salud’s early days. Corrine loves spending time with her two daughters and making pounded metal jewelry in her spare time. WHAT KIND OF FOOD DO YOU CREATE AT SALUD RAW FOODS? Every item on Salud’s menu is 100 percent raw, plant-based, and organic. “Around the time I opened Salud, there weren’t a lot of options for those with gluten, soy, or egg allergies,” says O’Shea. She explains how she shaped the offerings at Salud: “I wanted to create a place where everyone could eat anything on the menu.”   In addition, using only raw, plant-based ingredients offers food in its most natural state. “Raw food contains enzymes, which are killed when cooked. People don’t get enough enzymes, and we create entirely raw food that you can enjoy while getting those nutrients your body needs,”  says O’Shea. FAVORITE DISH ON THE MENU? “This is a hard one,” chuckles O’Shea. “If I had to pick just one, it would be the first item we put on the original menu, which is one of two things that hasn’t left since the beginning. I used to make this at home before Salud existed, and it really got the wheels turning in my head.” She describes the Island Style Wrap with a sense of nostalgic affection: Mango, mint, cilantro, ginger cashew pesto, an almond pineapple sauce, bell peppers, carrots, and cabbage, all tucked into a collard wrap.  SaludRawFoods.com 24

J ACLYN PE RE Z & B ETS Y MCD O N ALD

WHO ARE JACLYN PEREZ AND BETSY MCDONALD? Jaclyn Perez and Betsy McDonald first crossed paths nearly a decade ago as chefs on the same yacht. Betsy’s husband, Mack, was captain and the pair cooked and cruised their way around the world. They worked together for nearly six years before disembarking from the sea and thinking about their next adventure. After traveling the world separately for several months, Perez met up with the McDonalds in Modena, Italy, where they all shared an incredible meal. They described how, “Several glasses of wine later,” it was declared they would finally start their own restaurant. What would they call it?  Perez looked up at the tree above her and proclaimed, “Let’s call it The Lemon Tree!” WHAT KIND OF FOOD DO YOU CREATE AT THE LEMON TREE? McDonald describes The Lemon Tree’s food as, “Internationally inspired and locally sourced.” A new menu is printed every few days, often with inspiration and ingredients plucked from the

downtown farmer’s market around the corner from the restaurant and held each Wednesday from May through October 10th. FAVORITE DISH ON THE MENU? McDonald chose the national dish of Indonesia, Nasi Goreng, defining it as, “A sexy, succulent dish that looks simple on paper, but has complex flavors.” Spicy fried rice with shrimp, chicken, and vegetables is topped with an over-easy egg, and garnished with cilantro, lime cheek, sambal (a hot sauce), and pickled cucumbers. “Much like the Indonesian way, you can take the basic dish and season it to your liking,” she says. For Perez, a favorite is Shakshuka, a traditional Tunisian dish. The Lemon Tree’s Shakshuka is a union of poached eggs in a chunky tomato sauce, with chili peppers, bell peppers, onion, cumin, garlic,

and paprika. “This dish blossoms more and more as you eat it,” says Perez, describing the dish with affection. LemonTreeBend.com

ROAD TRIP

(CON TI N U ED)

OREGON’S HOOD RIVER VALLEY IS HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL WHEN FALL TAKES HOLD. The region shows its autumnal burnt orange and yellow-colored foliage, and fresh fruit unfurls from the land’s historic and fertile farms. Perhaps one of the sweetest of fresh fruit settings is at Mt. View Orchards. The bucolic farm stretches across 50 acres with Mt. Hood rising to the south and the Middle Fork Hood River flowing to west. Owner and farmer Katrina McAlexander grew up here and learned about farming with her parents and grandparents, who bought the farm in the 1930s. She knew early on she was a part of something special. At 25 years of age, Katrina began saving $200 a month with the expressed goal of buying her family’s farm. In 2014, she had saved enough, and left her city job as a nurse practitioner to become the owner and the third-generation to keep the legacy going. In her first year, she brought ideas for modernization while maintaining the farm’s celebrated outdoor living room feel, opening an event and wedding space and repurposing a section of the shop to a cidery, with a tasting room to be added in 2019.  “We are weaving together farming, fermentation, and hospitality,” says McAlexander. “We want people to make a connection to the land and to fresh, local foods.” Mt. View Orchards sits on the southwest section of Hood River County’s Fruit Loop, which was established in 1992 to support local farmers and promote sustainable agricultural diversity. Katrina and her family grow a lot: Cherries, peaches, nectarines, plums, grapes, blueberries, quince, and pumpkins.  But the real golden ticket is in the more than 80 varieties of apples with peak season occurring between mid-September through October. The orchard has rows and rows of peach, apple, and pear trees designated for u-pick at a discounted rate per pound. “It’s a dream come true to meet and see generations of families that keep coming back,” she says.  “It makes our farmers smile. Gratitude is my anchor.” That gratitude extends to generosity: Mt. View Orchards also donates to the local food bank, various school lunch programs, and offers the space to community partners and nonprofits. “There’s nothing as satisfying as tasting an apple right from the branch,” says McAlexander. “It’s one of the reasons we invite people to the land. Everyone should experience it. In a region with wealth, there is still food insecurity, so we try to shoot the gap by sharing our food and farm forward.”

Jadite Pepper and Sugar Shakers that belonged to her grandmother. “The pepper shaker reminds me that you can’t be afraid to season your food, and the sugar shaker reminds me that ‘life is so sweet’,” Britt says. 2.) Good Olive Oil. 3.) Favorite Cookbooks. 4.)  A Large Mixing Bowl. 5.)
