Eye On | On a roll: Blue Flame takes a fresh approach

For Xiu Calvin Chen, co-owner at Blue Flame Asian Bistro, quality comes first. Homemade sauces and dressings, fresh vegetables and sushi-grade seafood come together in the little restaurant at 307 Valley Mall Parkway to offer dishes from anywhere from Korea to China to Japan.

Tiny hidden treasures: Chocolatiers fill tiny shop with bites of hand-made heaven

A rich brown color and perfectly round, the nine-piece box of bite-sized sweets looks like a chocolate itself — save for the dark brown bow perched neatly on top.

Both had great-grandparents that boot-legged spirits in the 1920s. In fact, it was boot-legging that brought Carol Levi’s family to the Wenatchee Valley.
