Welcome to Bistro OneSix

Welcome to Bistro OneSix where four of my interests – writing, photography, cooking and, of course, eating – all converge. The recipes found here primarily focus on healthy, clean eating with a few indulgences now and then.

My food-centric website expanded when my husband and I had a vision to transform the alley behind our house into an edible, vertical garden. The SNOW Block Alley project was born and has taken on a vibrant life of its own, literally and metaphorically. We couldn't be more excite and proud of what it's become. We share lots of how-to and chronicle its progress here in hopes of helping inspire people to look at wasted space differently.

I'm a graphic designer and web department manager by profession and am fortunate to work with a lot of food companies, many in the natural and organic segment. I often get inspiration from the food stylist and photographers, not to mention the clients, that I work with.

In 2014 I was published for the first time. Edible Idaho printed my article on cheesemaking and I couldn't be more thrilled to continue contributing for this lovely, food-focused magazine.

I'm lucky to live in Boise, Idaho where not only is it beautiful, there's four distinct seasons that influence the menu year around. We have great access to a wide array of fruits, vegetables and meats not to mention a blooming wine and craft beer industry. I'd wager to say that Boise is becoming a foodie city and I'm pleased to call it home.

Thanks again for joining me. I hope you enjoy!

Cheers, Linda
