Perfect as a cultural aprés ski evening, a Spanish comida will be made by 1859′s Home Grown Chef, Lisa Glickman, who, for years, lived and cooked in Barcelona. In an intimate wooden cottage on Bend’s west side, expect a tapas menu with an Oregon twist of house-made potato chips with marinated olives and Marcona almonds, saffron-pickled cauliflower and tortillas de patata to name a few. The main course is a traditional Spanish paella, but made with local smoked ham, chorizo, chicken, shrimp, clams and mussels. Sip and learn about tempranillo from one of Oregon’s best winemakers. Spicy Flamenco music provides ritmo into the night. Seating is limited to thirty guests.
