Bethlyn Rider

Bethlyn Rider has earned a reputation as one of the most friendly and experimental chefs in town. But along with curiosity and creativity sometimes comes relentlessness.

Rider established her reputation (and following) as the executive chef for Broken Top Bottle Shop, which won the Source's Best of Central Oregon for Vegetarian Food in 2014 under her leadership, and then branched out to start her Global Fusion Farm to Street Food Truck late last summer. And, less than a year later, she has now opened the doors to a brick-and-mortar restaurant—which, although sharing the "Global Fusion" name from her food truck and carrying the same attention to detail and postmodern sense of yummie food mashups, presents an almost entirely different menu and scene.

"Global Fusion is my own twist to recepies where I combine cuisine from around the world such as indian food with an asian twist, or american and an african twist, french with an indian twist, and so much more.  Bethlyn has an unusual nack for creative ethnic combinations."
