Little Bites: French Market Opens & Solar Eclipse Ice Cream | Chow | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Solar Eclipse Ice Cream Contest Winner

Using the upcoming solar eclipse as a theme, Eberhard's Dairy asked the public to come up with a new ice cream flavor. Marissa White won with her entry, Solar Swirl, a vanilla-based ice cream with caramel swirls, marshmallows, and small fudge chunks. Solar Swirl will be available at select Central Oregon scoop shops and local stores.

French Market Opens

Now you can feel like you are sitting in a French cafe without the international travel costs. The former Riverside Market is now French Market, a restaurant and market with French and internationally inspired dishes. Their menu includes interesting bites, small plates, handmade pasta, six different pizzas and a refreshing cocktail menu. They are open every day from 11am-7pm, serving lunch and dinner at approachable prices.

The Great British Bake Off Returns

Time to look for soggy bottoms, you know, in tarts and pies. The Great British Bake Off returns to PBS for season four on June 16th. GBBO is a delightfully proper English baking show where the drama isn't between contestants but between the contestant and their baking challenge. Be ready to fall in love with home bakers across the pond and delight in the silly and sometimes filthy sounding quotes from the judges. Here are few delights from judge and baking legend, Mary Berry: "Your crack is nice and moist," and "There is no such thing as too big. Not in my world." This is your last chance to enjoy the original cast. Mary Berry, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins did not go with GBBO's move to its new channel.
