Recipe – A neighborhood kitchen in Newberg, Oregon

screenshotNewberg, Oregon is the gateway to the Yamhill Valley wine country, which is the premier Pinot Noir location in the world. Oregon Pinots regularly surpass France and California; they make a native Oregonian like me proud.  Good wine cries out for good food, so allow me to introduce you to one of my new favorite restaurants – Recipe.

Much of the produce is grown a block away in their middle of town garden. They are committed to local whenever possible, produce, meat, baked goods. Even the dining tables are reclaimed local barn wood.

IMG_0253One of my best recommendations for good eating is to let the server choose, Andrew, the front of the house manager, brought me crispy duck. How could he know duck is always a hit with me?

When you go be sure to ask for advice on which wineries to visit. Andrew told us about Penner-Ash, which we fell in love with, planning to go back for a dinner in April.
