We Serve the Bounty of the Gorge and Hood River Valley
By: Mary Pellegrini
What do you see in this photo? If you answered apples, mushrooms, potatoes, bread and greens, you would be right. I see a savory Italian Fritatta with Argula and mushrooms, herbed roasted potatoes, a rich and flavorful banana French Toast and Old Parkdale Inn’s famous Baked Fuji Apples.
Once a week we receive our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) box delivered to our door by Hood River Organics. It is like Christmas every time, not knowing what gifts we will receive. Depends on what is being harvested on the organic family farms in the Hood River Valley and Columbia Gorge.
As spring turns into summer the box get heavier with more and more of the bounty our farms have to offer. Won’t be long before the berries and fresh herbs start arriving. Can’t you just taste them?
