Birthday Faces


Happy Birthday to Chef JC and Ricky, also known as “Ricky’s Pickles.” One year wiser and one Timbers tie closer to the playoffs. Thanks for continuing to make the GTF kitchen a fun and successful place to be!

Kitchen Crew of Which to Be Proud!!!

What a kitchen crew. They love to eat, laugh, shape loaves, shape pizza, slice steaks, write special event menus, ski, cycle and garden. The younger half hails from the local jungle…Corvallis and Philomath. Ben and Lawson are both working on 5 plus years here at GTF. The more mature half of the team hails from far flung North Carolina and further flung northern Sicily. Aaron is a jack of all trades here at the farm, and Fabio sets his focus on tender moist meats.

Love and the River

Despite a threateningly high water level in the Mary’s River (and our parking lot)we have had wonderful Valentine’s celebrations this week with a dinner on Thursday and Friday and one more this evening. I stole a moment out of my day’s prep to put up some images from the last two nights. Enjoy, and I hope you had as much fun as we did! For those with the lucky reservations, I hope to see you tonight!
