One of the features of the new menu at Ten Depot Street that our customers are telling us that they really like is the Small Plates, which are basically half portions of some of our regular meals without the soup or salad for just $10 or $12. We are also doing half portions of our entree salads. Now there is room for dessert!
And we have cherries from Cove. Our next Daily Dessert will be a warm Dark Cherry Cobbler with Ice Cream.
And for a special Wednesday and Thursday, one of the dishes that was a hit at our last Wine Tasting, Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Dark Cherry Sauce. Try it with a glass of Maryhill Winemaker's Red.
Our next wine tasting on Wednesday, August 14, will feature wines from the Maryhill Winery in the Columbia River Gorge. The cost is $ 30 for four courses and four wines. Call 541 963-8766 for reservations.
We found some delicious ripe peaches on Saturday at the Farmers' Market. This week try our fresh Peach Daiquiris.
And Next Tuesday, August 6, is the First Tuesday Open Mic at Ten Depot Street with the ever dynamic host Ashley O'Toole.
This will be the last What's Cooking column as such in The Observer. I have been writing the column for close to thirty years now and it has been a great form of advertising. But people are not reading print as much and we need to reduce our advertising dollars. We will still run a smaller ad in the Monday paper with our specials, new items, wine tastings, and musical events and then do a blog on our new website (which will launch soon) with more details about what is happening at the restaurant.
