Summer flew by and The Hammond Kitchen and Craft Bar team has been hard at work developing a new Fall menu, which is filled with color, freshness, richness, and flavor.

We sampled the following plates and drinks, and we know they’ll tantalize your taste buds.

H Platter: This is a special platter made with both California deviled eggs and their signature homestyle deviled eggs, along with mushroom toast, smoked salmon, albacore tuna, seasonal smoked seafood, toasted almonds, olives, pickled vegetables, and crostini.

Chicken Dumplings: Made with Mary’s fresh range chicken, chicken gravy, fall vegetables, mushroom and scallion dumplings. The presentation alone with surprise you, and then the flavor!

Fresh Grilled Ora King Salmon: Made with citrus butter, sweet pepper, and delicate risotto. The citrus butter is a nice twist on a fan favorite.

Wedge Salad: Made with bibb lettuce, pancetta bacon, Parmesan croutons, candied delicate squash, and Gorgonzola dressing. The Wedge salad is for those seeking a lighter meal experience.

Beet Salad: Made with tri-colored beets, arugula, chèvre, dried cherries, toasted pumpkin seeds, balsamic redux and extra virgin olive oil. We love the texture and fresh of the beets, and how they balance nicely with the chèvre and other ingredients.

Autumn Chop: This is a festival of flavor also for those seeking a lighter meal. Made with Mary’s free range chicken, romaine, pancetta, pear, apple, dried cherries, smoked Gouda, chopped egg, toasted pumpkin seeds, candied squash, and cider maple vinaigrette.

Hammond
Fresh Orca King Salmon.

Red barrel braised short ribs: Made with red wine sour cream redux, pappardelle pasta, shiitakes, and smoked mushroom butter. These ribs are fantastic!

The Hammond has also crafted four new drinks for Fall:

Bon voyage margarita: This ginger cranberry margarita is crafted with Sauza Horintos, New Deal ginger liquer, housemade cranberry simply syrup and lime — it’s bright, tart and bold.

Camas Apple Punch: With muddled fresh apples, Burnside Oakes bourbon, Bellewood gin, apple sour, house-made harvest simple syrup and cava sparkling brut — it’s light, fresh, and juicy.

Jamaican Me Fall: With 3 Howls spiced rum, Cruzan aged rum, Falernum, lime and quince jam — it’s tropical, dark and fruity.

Hot Spiked Cider: Green Mountain hot spiced apple cider with your choice of Bellewood pumpkin spiced liquer or Heritage Brown Sugar bourbon and fresh whipped cream — it’s sweet, lush and toasty.

The City of Washougal is inviting the community to celebrate the city’s history and its newest piece of public art with the official unveiling of the White Wing Mural in honor of Betsey Ough, Wednesday, October 9 at 4 pm.  The ceremony will take place in front of the piece, located outside the Washougal Library at 1661 C Street, Washougal.  A reception will follow in the Washougal Community Center next door. 

“If you are familiar with Washougal’s history, you know that Betsey White Wing Ough, a Cascades Tribe princess, along with her husband Richard Ough, founded our great city,” said Jim Cooper, Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance board president.  “For her role, Betsey is lovingly referred to by many as the ‘Mother of Washougal.’ The theme of the mural is Richard Ough courting Betsey White Wing Ough.” 

WACA spearheaded the effort and lead fund raising for the work. 

Mural artist Toma Villa is an internationally renowned Native American artist.  He will attend the dedication and share his thoughts about White Wing and how he developed the 8’-11” x 25’ scene.  “Through my extensive research on Betsey Ough (White Wing) of the Washougal people, I found her story inspiring on a personal level,” he said. “What it shows is how love can change one’s life and what can be created from it.” 

Inspiration came in part from a quote describing Richard Ough’s feelings for the young princess. “…he thought he could see White Wing in the clouds and in the forest and in his dreams.  He said, “Come pretty bird and fly with me, for I am lonely, and my nest is empty.”

Mural

For the mural, Villa chose to feature the egret bird to represent White Wing for its beauty and grace. “I used seven of them for that is a significant number in Columbia River longhouses,” he explained. “They are facing East; of the way the wind blows on the river. The baskets are from the Two Rivers Heritage Museum and are part of a greater collection in Washougal, accenting the mural representative of White Wing as a weaver same as her grandmother.” 

The unveiling and dedication ceremony program will begin with a Washaat Prayer by Members of the Yakima Nation, White Swan Longhouse in the tradition of their native heritage. In addition to Villa, speakers will include Washougal Mayor, Molly Coston speaking about how influential White Wing was as a woman and native landowner in early Clark County.  

Former Washougal City Council member, Joyce Lindsay, will also speak on the impact and attention drawn to Native American cultures by efforts such as the Confluence and the inspiration that led WACA to work with the artist that would memorialize Princess White Wing in this colorful mural.  

Another speaker will be Elder Johnnie Lee Wyman, who will represent the Yakima Nation and is a Great Great Grandson of Richard and Betsey Ough through their son, Benjamin Ough.  Wyman will speak on behalf of his family about the significance of this gift in honor of White Wing and how it impacts her future generations.

Attendees of the ceremony are invited to meet and greet the Ough family descendants, artist Toma Villa, city leaders, and the WACA board at the reception following in the Washougal Community Center – 1681 C Street.  Additional historic information will be provided at the reception by the Two Rivers Heritage Museum.

Tommy O’s at The Camas Hotel has created a new Happy Hour menu, and you’ll want to come back several times to sample all the joy!

The Happy Hour runs daily — Tuesday through Sunday — from 3-5 pm and again from 8 to close. Every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday they close at 9, and on Fridays and Saturdays the doors close at 10. A to go option isn’t available.

We reviewed the following plates:

  • Ahi Tuna Poke: This is a wild ahi tuna poke. Poke is sashimi grade ahi tossed with gluten free soy dressing, atop a bed of shredded cabbage. So delicious!
  • Coconut Crunchy Shrimp: Tommy O’s uses butterfly shrimp that’s coated in shredded coconut, with sweet chili plum dipping sauce.
  • Caesar Salad: Made with organic romaine, house-made croutons, and house-made Caesar dressing.
  • Pork Belly Bites: The bites are slowed cooked overnight, cut into cubes and flash fried and coated with Thai garlic caramel sauce. Very decadent. Tommy O’s calls them “bacon on a stick!”

Other Happy Hour snacks include Calamari, Organic Thai Chicken Drumsticks, Kalua Pork Sliders, House Cut Fries, and the Kalua Pork & Rice Bowl with pickled veggies. The pork and rice bowl is a traditional Hawaiian snack.

“It’s what you eat after a day surfing,” says Josh Owens, who operates this new location.

The Liquid Aloha Hour includes a rotating daily happy hour cocktail special, as well red and white wines, and draft beers for $5. All bottles of wine are 10 percent off.

So how are things going three months into this new location?

“We’re busy on expected days,” says Owens. “Lunch is getting busier. Happy Hour is great. Even late night happy hour has more people in late.”

Stop in. They’re located at the Camas Hotel on 4th Avenue in Historic Downtown Camas.

Given America’s love affair with burgers, the major hit of last year’s Feast@316 Burger Contest and the fact that Kris Cavin, aka @KCFreshInc eats three to four burgers a week, it’s fitting we came to this collaboration — and production — of a new Lacamas Magazine Web Series we’re calling “@KCFreshInc Meets Burger.”

The series will star Cavin, a Country Financial insurance agent, and local photographer extraordinaire, as he visits diners, restaurants, and burger joints across the region in search of the best burgers.

“We have so many great restaurants in the area,” said Cavin. “And some get overlooked, and these places have amazing burgers. We’re gonna shine a light on some of these places, and also cover the ones people know about. There’s a lot of love going into food preparation here in Clark County, and beyond, and we’ll have fun covering this, and maybe we’ll even break some news. I’m grateful to Lacamas Magazine for making this happen.”

Cavin, better known as @KCFreshInc to all his Twitter followers volunteers his time as a photographer capturing images at area sports events, and people often refer to him as KC these days.

“I absolutely love Camas,” said Cavin. “We raised our kids here, they went to Camas schools. We’re proud Papermakers, and love promoting the great things happening here and around SW Washington.”

Burger
The Jalepeno Burger with Cream Cheese was featured at Grains of Wrath.

The series already filmed the first episode, which featured the Build Your Own Burger at Washougal Times (formerly called Hellers) in Washougal.

“I had no idea they serve such a great burger,” he said. “Guess I better not give away anymore details.”

In each episode, Cavin will visit each establishment, meet the owners and operators, and tell a little about the place. The burger’s rating is based on the following criteria:

  • Burger quality
  • Quality and ratio of condiments
  • Quality of bun
  • Quality of sides
  • Value to price

Each area will receive a star and an ultimate ranking.

“It really is just about having fun,” said Cavin. “We love burgers — so let’s talk about what makes a great burger.”

The first episode will appear on the Lacamas Magazine YouTube Channel in the coming days. Stay tuned. To learn more, visit www.youtube.com/lacamasmagazine

Columbia River

So, earlier today, I picked up some freshly-picked organic Granny Smith apples along with some other great produce at the Shangri-La Farm stand in Fern Prairie. And, upon getting home, I sliced one, and munched on it, then decided to make an Apple Crumble.

This is a slightly revised recipe from RecipeTinEats. Since it was a trial, we cut everything in half for our version, and it turned out great!

It takes 12-15 minutes to prepare, then another 40 minutes to bake in the over. And, even though the photo doesn’t show it, we highly recommend eating it with vanilla ice cream. It makes it even that much better.

Granny Smith Apple Crumble Ingredients

APPLE FILLING

  • 2 lb / 1kg Granny Smith Apples( green apples), weight before peeling
  • 1 tbsp white flour
  • 1/2 cup / 110g white sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice (or water)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

TOPPING

  • 1 cup / 90g cup rolled oats / oatmeal (quick cooking is ok)
  • 1 cup / 150g white flour
  • 1 cup / 175 g brown sugar (loosely packed)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 cup / 125g unsalted butter, melted
  • Pinch of salt

TO SERVE

  • Must have with vanilla ice cream
Granny Smith
Fresh Granny Smith apples.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F/180C.
  • Peel apples, then cut into 1.5cm/ 3/5” cubes (I opted to not peel my apples since they were just picked. It enhanced the flavor and texture).
  • Place apple in a bowl. Sprinkle with flour, sugar and cinnamon, then pour over lemon juice. Toss, then spread out evenly I’m a 1.5 litre/1.5 quart baking dish. 
  • Place Topping ingredients in a bowl. Mix until clumps form, like wet sand. Spread over the apples, crumbling with fingers if required to get that crumbly topping.
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove, cover loosely with foil to keep warm and let stand for 10 minutes before serving (let’s the apple filling come together).

Tommy O’s at the Camas Hotel.

When we found out the much-respected, consistently delicious, and community-oriented brand was returning to Camas we were ecstatic! Tommy Owens, his son, Josh, and team went right to work modifying the small space into a workable restaurant to fit the local ambiance and carry on the tradition we all know and love.

Now, two months plus into their new location, Tommy O’s at the Camas Hotel has mastered the tiny space by modifying — with great success — their fine offerings.

During our review session, we happily sampled the Thai Garlic Chicken Drumsticks (the biggest surprise of the day), Lobster Pot Stickers, Ahi Sashimi — all three are small plates — as well as the Miso Sake Butterfish (see featured photo), Kalbi Salmon, Teriyaki Chicken, Steam Coconut Forbidden Rice, and the Spicy Wok Green Beans.

Tommy O’s at the Camas Hotel serves many of their signature dishes, but due to space limitations, they’ve streamlined the menu. The interior matches its menu with a Hawaiian flair.

“We tried to adapt the menu to take the best flavors from the downtown Vancouver restaurant and make them work in this location,” said Josh Owens. “This restaurant has some unique characteristics as far as the footprint, which is a third the size and then the kitchen layout has a big, beautiful brick oven, but we don’t have a grill so that changes what we can do. Most of what you see here, the teriyaki chicken, the butterfish, the cedar plank salmon, those things all come out of our above ground brick imu. It runs at 600 degrees and allows us to get a nice crispy skin on that chicken, food sears really quickly, so it’s a great tool to serve a great number of people very quickly in a small footprint.”

Head Chef Jonathon Betts makes it all happen.

“I feel that the smaller kitchen is easier to work around because you’re not turning as much,” said Betts. “The public response has been very positive. They love the things that are different about this new space. We don’t have the Kalbi Ribs because we don’t have the grill. Some things just don’t work here, but we’re always looking for ways to bring those flavors here.”

What’s new?

“Just about everything you see here on the table,” said Betts. “The way we do things is much different. The butterfish is seared in the cast iron pan, and you get a different range of flavors. We do a half chicken here, and at Vancouver we just do the breast. I want things to be as good here as downtown if not better.”

The Kalbi Salmon! Why is it so good?

“The oven! Plus we soak the cedar planks,” said Betts. “We have the Kalbi marinade (same as the Kalbi ribs) with soy and sugar, and it’s in there for 24 hours, then while it cooks in the 600 degree oven it becomes caramelized.

Tommy O’s

Teriyaki Chicken

A customer favorite, a lot of time and research went into perfecting their Teriyaki Chicken, which is locally sourced.

“We wanted an opportunity to set us apart and offer great flavors,” said Owens. “We wanted to find a high quality chicken we could bring to the customers in Camas. We found this free range chicken that is both high quality and makes for a nice presentation. It makes a good meal. Our goal is always to put the challenge out there to have the best teriyaki chicken in town.”

The Tommy O’s Brand

“We’ve been in Vancouver for nearly 26 years,” said Owens. “We went from a lunch place to what it is now. For me, our success is all about focusing on a great customer experience. It’s about consistency and a focus on quality. Your dining dollar is stretched farther than it has ever been, so it’s making sure the experience is a good one. We make so much of our food from scratch, and it takes days and days to make that happen, but the end result is something you can’t replicate anywhere else. For us it’s about finding the sweet spot of going the extra mile and making sure we source the best ingredients we can find at the right price point.”

“We invite you to dine with us.”
