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.

I was incredibly disappointed in this "Culinary" tour. I have been on other city food tours and expected to ate least be sampling actual food from restaurants. I feel like we were completely ripped off as I do not know what our $90 paid for??? Here is where we went and my reviews: Olive Oil shop: Navidis - There are... More

We are sorry you were disappointed with our culinary tour. We are quite careful on our web site and advertising that this is a tour featuring local food producers, not necessary restaurants. We also clearly state that we sample food at locally owned businesses and we have discussed and made arrangements in advance with the local businesses. You would not... More

We spent a lovely afternoon with the friendly chef from Well Traveled Fork touring a great mix of eating/drinking establishments in beautiful Bend. She introduced us to a great coffee house, fabulous gelato place, off-the-beaten-path breweries, meat shop and other places we might never have found on our own. Along the way, we enjoyed delicious samples and purchased some goodies... More

I recently attended a group event that was catered by The Well Traveled Fork and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the vegetarian entree. I told the neighbor seated next to me that it was the best pasta entree I'd ever tasted, including those I've had in restaurants. To find it at a large group event, coming out of... More

I have been to events that Bette has catered, the food was fresh and fantastic. My wife and I also attended one of The Well Traveled Fork's wood fired pizza classes. Had a great time, was able to work with the wood fired oven which was an excellent experience and then got to eat the pizza. Well worth doing. Would... More

I went on the Downtown Walking Tour of Bend in October with Sophie as our guide. There were only four people in our Wednesday group. 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!...

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.
