Mama Wes Italian Food to host its first Pop-up at Local Rhoots Fridays and Saturdays now-July 9
Local Rhoots has been a new destination for pop-ups. Over the past few months, it has opened its space on weekends for dine-in (order at the counter and grab a table to eat) or take out featuring things like Asian noodles and Mexican brunch.
This month, Amiee Cannon, known as Mama Wes, will launch her Italian pop-up. The menu features fettuccini alfredo, shrimp scampi, lasagna, charcuterie (pictured above) and more. Prices for entrees range from $17-$19. A hot tip: we've been told people love Amiee's lasagna, which is 5 layers of cheesy, noodly goodness made with her family's recipe for sauce.
Here are a few more details about the pop-up:

Amiee, owner of Mama Wes, has lived in Hood River for 30 years. She began cooking for the masses when her son, Wes, was in high school theater. She took it on herself to make dinner for the entire cast of his plays when they'd have long rehearsals, including the band members. The kids called her "Mama Wes." After he graduated, she went on to culinary school and then interned at Celilo, where she works to this day. One day, she would like to open a food truck in Hood River.
