tres leches cake A long-disputed history surrounds the decadent tres leches cake, with many a Central American country vying for bragging rights over its moist, sugary crumb.

He infuses his buttery cake with the conventional trio of whole, evaporated, and sweetened condensed milks, then tops it off with a cloud of meringue and some tequila-drenched strawberries.

Greenhouse Gallery: Life on the Farm in Willamette Valley

Life on the Farm in Willamette Valley When Clare Carver isn't bringing the farm to table, she's vibrantly expressing it on canvas; her latest collection, Life on the Farm in Willamette Valley, is now on display at the Greenhouse Gallery at the Beard House. In a collaborative effort to produce what they love to eat and drink, Clare and her husband, Brian Marcy, run Big Table Farm, a 70-acre farm and winery in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Her work is integrally linked to rural life: raising cattle, goats, and chickens, training draft horses, and producing Big Table Farm wines, which were recently poured at a Beard House dinner featuring Portland’s popular European-style gastropub, Clyde Commons.
