Food Farmer Earth
A weekly series about our food and sustainable agriculture.
Chef David Padberg of the new Raven and Rose restaurant, demonstrates an unusual way to serve up a grilled ham and cheese sandwich. Another great excuse to use your cast iron pan!
Lisa Mygrant grew up in a family that grew their own food, made the kitchen the center of the home, and appreciated seasonal foods prepared well. One day she dreamed of owning her own restaurant. Driving by a 130 year old building in downtown Portland, Mygrant discovered it was for sale— this was the beginning of a childhood dream come true.
Much of the food prepared at the Raven and Rose restaurant will be sourced locally. One of Mygrants philosophies is to support people who she feels are farming responsibly, and that philosophy is an important part of the inspiration behind her owning a restaurant.
