Quack: A University of Oregon Grad Like our Grandad
Our father's dad (pictured here in the hat) was a Duck football player, coach plus UW Husky coach. My mother-in-law Caroline Dickey was a proud Duck too and our client Rosanna, another card-carrying Duck, makes dishes. The UO's alumni magazine talks about Rosanna Bowles today saying,
"Rosanna Bowles ’79 Company Garners Global Appeal- Accomplished designer Rosanna Bowles ’79 is an Oregon native and lives part time in Gearhart, OR. Rosanna started her successful dishware company in the Pacific Northwest in 1982 and since then has racked-up awards and honors, plus seen her dishes carried and covered around the globe, everywhere from the gift shop at Buckingham Palace to Oprah's "O List.”
This Spring Rosanna has her first book coming out with the New York publishing house ABRAMS who publishes best sellers by foodies like Alton Brown and Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney. Hitting shelves this week, Rosanna's Coming Home is a guide to recapturing and reestablishing soulful life experiences that to often have faded from our world. Rosanna's sharing an inspiring compilation of recipes, tips, experiences, and life lessons that highlight the beauty and significance of tradition and ritual.
Former UO President Dave Frohnmayer weighs in….
“This elegant book invites the reader to explore new ways to create family traditions. I was immediately taken with the creative photography, wonderful recipes, and the focus on family occasions that will become more lasting traditions when carefully nurtured through Rosanna’s advice. This is an immensely practical book with a wonderfully poetic feel.” Dave Frohnmayer"
