Chris DiMinno runs the kitchen at Clyde Common in Portland, Oregon. No small task considering that the “European style tavern” is packed during dinner and lunch, every day of the week. Focusing on farm-to-table dishes created with ingredients sourced as locally as possible, Chris and his team consistently serve up delicious dishes like pappardelle, sausage and leg of rabbit, baby carrots, tarragon, scapes, ricotta salata and off the charts snacks like truffled popcorn. No wonder people keep coming back. Chris was Hanging with Harris.
A Menu Worthy of Returning to Twin Peaks
In anticipation of the return of Twin Peaks, we look back at the best food moments from the cult classic.
Easy Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Brisket
A spice rub with paprika, chili powder, cumin, brown sugar, cayenne, and garlic, and a smoky-sweet barbecue sauce with chipotle chiles lend mouth-watering layers of flavor to beef brisket, which gets incredibly tender after 10 hours in the slow cooker. Slice or shred the brisket and serve on good, sturdy bread for the ultimate BBQ sandwich, or make a combo plate with meat, slaw, baked beans, potato salad, or other classic BBQ sides.
Oven-ready in just 20 minutes, these whole-grain donuts are much lighter in calories and sugar than the typical sour cream cake donut. Topped with a touch of glaze and nutty pecans, these delightful bites are a truly satisfying breakfast treat.
Easy Roasted Acorn Squash
Roasted acorn squash couldn't be easier, or more delicious. A little butter, salt, freshly ground pepper, and a sprinkle of brown sugar to emphasize the squash's natural sweetness, plus about an hour in the oven, and you have a gorgeously caramelized side (or main dish, if you stuff the squash), with a pool of glaze in the center of each piece.
