Les Deux Amis was founded by two Bend moms of 3 small children who happen to be passionate about food. Cate has a culinary degree and was a pastry chef of the Barking Frog Restaurant near Seattle. Mary is a physician who approaches food with an eye toward precision. They love baking for friends and family, but began to ask themselves if gluten need be such a key component of what they make. After countless hours scouring articles, blogs, magazines and cookbooks followed by countless trial and error baking sessions, they’ve come up with several organic and locally sourced (whenever possible) gluten free, dairy free and/or vegan baked goods that even their most discerning 4-year-olds love. Ultimately, they’d love to share their delicious and healthy scones, muffins, breads and sweet confections with the larger Bend community.
