Employee of the Month: Zach

zach-s1

Zach is a treasure in the kitchen. He works thoughtfully and carefully, and keeps us giggling. We adore his goofball humor, quick wit and optimistic attitude. He started with Inspired Madness Inc. as a dishwasher at Nova Café. Zach A.K.A. “Zatch” has since been promoted from dish to prep cook and most recently to line cook with us here at Feed Café. He is an amazing worker and a quick study. His favorite Feed meal is the Elk Burger. If he were a toast special he’d be something, anything with pineapple, or he’d be a Z-Muff – the Muff sandwich on a biscuit covered in gravy. Aside from shredding cheeses and vegetables at work for fun he shreds the guitar in two local bands.

Zach is an asset to our team and a great human being, thank you for your hard work and great attitude Zach!!

Chiara puts passion and love into everything she does. Originally from Italy, she is  unfailingly vivacious and positive. Her incredible work ethic and passion for food are obvious to everybody in the restaurant and and she is the queen of maintaining a meticulously clean work environment. Chiara’s favorite Feed meals are the Panzanella Salad and the Harissa Chicken Salad. If she was a toast special, she’d be grilled zucchini, basil pesto, olive oil and shrimp on sourdough bread. She loves mediterranean flavors and fresh ingredients, and when she’s not at work she’s busy learning to cook new foods, learning to speak new languages and spending time with her family.

Employee of the Month: Emily

Emily “The Bread Wonder” is a priceless asset to the Feed family. Her favorite Feed meal is the Green Stuff sandwich and if she was a toast special, she’d be apple jelly, butternut squash and spiced apples on wheat toast because she loves the flavors of autumn. Originally from Stillwater, Minnesota, Emily started here with no experience but tons of drive, a strong work ethic and a passion for learning and she quickly exceled in our bread department. Emily is a model team member – a shining example of the “Sweet Heart” culture we embrace at Feed. When she’s not at work, she paints, reads, hikes, bikes and hangs with her roomies and their goofy cat.

Thank you Emily for your phenomenal work ethic, eagerness to learn, and the light-hearted, go get-em attitude you bring with you every day. We look forward to our future with you!

Fall Flavors

local elk toast

The perfect way to kick off hunting season – Hunter’s Toast – elk bolognese topped with a parmesan crisp on house-made sourdough.

local apple squash toast

This one celebrates harvest time with apple cider jelly, spiced butternut squash & apples, and balsamic drizzle on sourdough toast.

pumpkin crumble toast

And this one goes all out with a pumpkin apple crisp topped with pecans and whipped cream on rye toast. Pairs perfectly with the latest Park and Life Magazine and a hot cup of coffee.

Employee of the Month: Sean S.

Sean “The Pancake Whisperer” Stocker is a mountain of a man with a range of abilities. He accomplishes all tasks thrown at him, with an excellent eye for detail. He’s a beast on the line and has helped set the bar high for line cooks here at Feed Café. He puts his culinary degree to good use and has a passion for locally sourced ingredients. If Sean was a toast special, he’d be a smoked salmon, walnut and blue cheese salad topped with endive on wheat toast, because it reminds him of his roots in the Pacific Northwest – he’s from a town called White Salmon! His favorite Feed meals are the Biscuits & Gravy and Chorizo Omelette. When he’s not at Feed, he hikes, camps, climbs and hangs out at the dog park.

New toast specials

local tomato toast

Is there anything better than an in-season heirloom tomato? This new toast special has local heirloom tomatoes, local microgreens, bacon jam and balsamic reduction on house-made rye toast.

smoked salmon toast

This toast, unlike our weather lately, is the good kind of smoky – with smoked salmon, spicy marinated veggies and garlic aioli on house-made sourdough toast.

New toast specials

Our chefs are pulling out the stops with amazing toast specials lately. As always, they’re made with our house-baked bread using Montana grown wheat, toasted to perfection. Then flavor sensations are piled on top. Here’s one of our favorites – “everything toast” with cream cheese, lox, sun-dried tomato relish and a sprinkle of everything bagel spices on sourdough.

And here’s another gorgeous new one, using fresh, in-season blackberries. This has turkey, local chèvre and blackberry mostarda on wheat.

Employee of the Month: Mikala

Mikala

Mikala’s energy launches her whole team through their day! She is vibrant, empowering, always around to offer encouragement and hugs. Mikala loves her job and everybody knows it. Her Feed family members are also well loved, and Mikala tells us so every day. She works hard and happily on every shift and is willing to tackle any job to help her team, which inspires those around her to do the same.

Version 2

Her spirit animal is a herd dog because she’s full of energy and likes to keep her herd together. If Mikala was a toast special, she’d be banana, peanut butter and marshmallow fluff on sourdough. When she’s not at Feed, she’s busy climbing mountains with her Doberman Max and studying organic chemistry.

Thank you Mikala!
