Taste This! – Fresh Fish at Newport Avenue Market

For this week’s Taste This!, Donna Britt learns about the fresh fish in season this spring. Newport Avenue Market‘s Chris Alcorn shows her how the big fish that are arriving at the store now are turned into fillets you can take home and eat. 

Donna says if you’ve never tried Copper River salmon, now is the time!

Thanks to Chris and the crew for teaching us about fish.  A special thanks to Newport Avenue Market for giving us the resources each week to take you on these culinary adventures. Life is short.  Eat good food! 

The Great Outdoors: Kokanee Karnival

There are three sure signs of spring every year in Central Oregon: the re-opening of the Cascade Lakes Highway, the Pole Pedal Paddle event and the annual Kokanee Karnival at Shevlin Pond.
