Devour nominated for The Great Food Truck Race!



Eugene's own Devour has been nominated to be on this season of the Food Network's "The Great Food Truck Race"! For those who don't know, TGFTR is a competition that features food trucks from across the country travelling to different cities and competing with other outstanding street food vendors for a final prize of $100k!

We're very excited about this, even though it might mean having to leave our beloved Willamette Valley for a while. And it is an honor to have even been nominated in the first place.

For more information on the show, check out the Food Network Website.

Public Service Announcement - Bacon Candles

All the goodness of Bacon, now in Candle form!

The lights went out, power's down, and you're without a flashlight. What to do? Well, if you were smart you watched this video, and learned how to make your own Bacon infused candles from the good people at DevourEugene.com Now you can sit back, enjoy the aroma of bacon wafting through the room and wait for the power to come back on. That or for the zombies to attack. Really depends on whether it's the apocalypse or not. Either way, might as well be prepared.

Cheap 'bucks


If you're anything like I am, you've dreamed of having your own coffee shop in your kitchen. And while it's difficult to justify the cost of hiring your own barista, one thing that is definitely not difficult to swallow is the cost of making your own Frappuccino at home. Lifehacker today tells us how to make our own ice cold coffee beverage that is identical in every way but price to the one you can get at Starbucks.

Click here and learn how to make your own Frappuccino at home for the grand cost of about.... Thirty-Two cents.  That's less that one tenth the cost of buying one out on the street, where you have no idea how much it's been stepped on. Don't let your friendly neighborhood caffeine pusher win. Eliminate the middleman and drink in the profits.

Also, check out lifehacker when you get a chance. They're just awesome.

The Devour Cafe!


The Devour Cafe was established way back in the year 2010. Times were different then. Things moved a bit slower. The idea that a grilled panini sandwich Cafe could serve fresh savory slices of heaven at a low price wasn't so revolutionary back in those simpler times.

In the several months that followed it's inception, Devour grew and expanded on it's original mission. Now offering more than just a great place to meet up for a sandwich, Devour incorporated a take-away counter, offering choice in an era of choicelessness, and letting patrons decide if they want to eat in, or grab something for later, whichever they choose.

It's been a long haul. But now looking back, it's safe to say that Devour has established what must be the finest grilled panini sandwich shop ever to be located on Olympic avenue, in front of jerry's and walmart. Conveniently placed in Springfield, offering competitively priced delicious savory sandwiches, Devour has come a long way from it's humble origins. And we are here today to celebrate that fact.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Do you have a Facebook page? Do you use a smartphone to check that page? If you do, next time you're in the Devour Cafe, "check-in" on Devour's Facebook page and show us to receive a sweet dessert treat on the house! Just our way of giving back to those of you who give us so much Facebook love.

Iced Coffee greatness



Here at Devour we're always looking for new and exciting ways to get our caffeine fix. And Vietnamese Iced Coffee has been one of our favorite ways to get that sweet black gold pumping through our veins.

This recipe (from Allrecipes.com) has everything we love in a cold coffee drink. It's easy to make, and tastes amazing:


Ingredients

  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup dark roast ground coffee beans
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 16 ice cubes

Directions

  1. Brew coffee with water using your preferred method to make brewed coffee. Spoon 2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk into each of 4 coffee cups. Pour 1 cup of fresh hot coffee into each cup, and stir to dissolve the milk.
  2. Serve guests cups of coffee, and give each one a tall glass with 4 ice cubes, and a long handled spoon. Guests pour hot coffee over the ice cubes and stir briskly with the long handled spoon, making an agreeable clatter with the ice cubes to chill the coffee.                 

It's a great way to get your caffeine, and pairs amazingly well with a Devour Sandwich, of course. We make it with Pacori Coffee at home, but if there is enough interest we'll start serving in the Devour Cafe! So what do you think? Should Devour start making Vietnamese Iced Coffee? Let us know!

Retro Communication, CB style

"The Live Saver"

The citizens band radio. Oh yeah bringing back the classic. Well at least trying it out.  A find at the recent flea market. This is an emergency version that plugs into a 12 volt cigarette plug. Then you pull out the magnetic annetena base, stick that to your rig and boom 39 channels for sandwich signals.

Magnetic antenna stuck on the side of Ruby

Tim Lewis and Sandwiches!

Every week Tim Lewis drives down to our commercial area of Springfield to deliver some awesome photography action.

". . . what can I say? Completely, totally hooked on it. I love creating images, mostly portraits . . . I like moody, highly dramatic pictures . . . with rich, dark blacks and a good amount of tone".

So yeah he usually shoots humans but he can really make a sandwich sing as well. The old VW sofa seems to make a unique backdrop. Coupled with his tools, Tim produces some great textures that pop the food out. He must be digging the efforts since he always eats the subjects.


Epic sandwich shoot in the making! The Devour crew often decides how to cut the sand up and Lewis deals with the aftermath. 



He's got his funky light all set up. Sandwich soon to be devoured after one more trip down the runway.



The finished product. Looking good!
