gavin Gavin McMichael Talent, opportunity and pure motivation have been the hallmarks of Executive Chef Gavin McMichael's 15 years of culinary experience. Rated one of the best new restaurants in the world by Condé Nast Traveler, McMichael's six-year old Blacksmith Restaurant opened to immediate accolades from residents and tourists eager for an upscale, new American menu.
Using one of Bend's treasured historic buildings as his culinary stage, McMichael fuses wide-ranging experience to create New Ranch Cuisine. Patrons travel from Portland and surrounding states to indulge in their favorite dish, ranging from "Cider-Brined Pork Rib Chop" with apple chutney and two-year old smoked cheddar macaroni & cheese to "Pan-Seared Halibut" with roasted sweet potato enchiladas and spinach beurre blanc.
Throughout his career, McMichael has been sought after for his capabilities and has risen quickly through the ranks. He received most his training in some of America's top kitchens, and he gained first hand knowledge of French and Italian culinary traditions when he rented an apartment in the south of France, training in some of southern France's best-known restaurants.
McMichael has worked with Mark Kiffin, corporate executive chef for Star Canyon Restaurant in Dallas and Stephan Pyles, executive chef at Star Canyon and one of the fathers of Southwestern cuisine.
McMichael's formal education includes a marketing degree from the University of Texas and a degree from the School of Culinary Arts in Denver. Much of his incremental development came from galleys in challenging venues.

Central Oregon is cowboy country, in a lot of respects, and I knew there was a good chance it would be very well received," said Gavin McMichael, Co-owner and Executive Chef of The Blacksmith Restaurant. "Oregon has such a great frontier history and bounty of ingredients that it's easy for a chef to embrace."
McMichael adds, "I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the country's finest, most talented chefs.
"It is comfort food," says Gavin. The menu features favorites such as Not Your Mother's Meatloaf with house made ketchup, Cider Brined Pork Rib Chop with smoked cheddar Mac & Cheese, or Fried Green Tomatoes with smoked Chicken Salad and an array of upscale versions of dessert classics like the Banana Split with Vanilla Marinated Bruleed Bananas, and the Chocoholic Brownie Ala Mode with waffle cone tuile and coffee bean ice cream.
"The lifestyle in Central Oregon is evolving," says McMichael.
