My Notes:

Served at Timberline Lodge, Mount Hood, Portland, Oregon Published in Timberline Lodge Cookbook (1987) by Leif Eric Benson (Certified Executive Chef of Timberline Lodge since 1979.) If you see the movie "The Shining" you will see the lodge. It was used for all the exterior shots. Scary place. Our Timberline is NOT scary. It is ski resort on top of Mount Hood, within minutes from downtown Portland. The lodge has rooms, a gourmet restaurant, pool. Built during Depression by WPA from timber in the area. The cookbook has gorgeous photos.
