Description:

The Well Traveled Fork offers insightful culinary tours and cooking classes...

The Well Traveled Fork offers insightful culinary tours and cooking classes in the Central Oregon area. You can meet the farmers and ranchers that grow the food that you put on your table. The growers will show you their fields and pastures, the places that make their products so unique that you will begin to understand and appreciate what fresh, local, organic, seasonal and sustainable food is all about!Our cooking classes are the best! Chef Bette teaches children as well as the experienced cook new things to do in the kitchen. From Wood Fired Cuisine in her pizza oven paired with Bend' famous beers to French pastry or children's classes, a day in the kitchen with Chef Bette is a memorable event.

Sophie guided us through tastings at an Olive Oil shop, tea and coffee stores, a raw food bar, kombucha shops, a gelato store; and restaurants as well as showing us some of the architectural highlights...

I had the pleasure of attending her pizza making class. She shared the what, how and why's of pizza making in a comfortable and professional way. She redefined what pizza was by including toppings which none of us had thought of and also ending the evening with a very nice unique dessert pizza. Not only did she show us what... More

After getting married in Vegas we decided to have our happily-ever-after reception in Sunriver as a "destination" celebration with our friends and family from Northern California and Oregon. Over a number of emails and phone conversations Chef Bette helped us navigate all aspects of this special occasion, from the appetizers and meal menu to the rentals. The result was spectacular!...

Sophie explained how Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) works and we saw it in action at the farms we visited. At two of the farms the owner was able to spend time with us...answering questions and sharing their practices... More

The cooking class at The Well Traveled Fork was such a delightful experience. The hospitality of the host and her warm, welcoming personality made this evening an evening of fun and learning. I loved that the group was limited to a small number of participants, Bette and her assistant, Sophie, were so accommodating, and the fact that they are very... More

we had a intimate group of couples and Chef Bette gets you involved as she shares her knowledge and techniques. The fun part is learning how to overcome your lack of cooking knowledge and find out how easy it is to prepare delicious meals! PLUS you get to eat what you learned to prepare!!
