25 May DISCOVER “CRAVE” WITH VISIONARY CHEF ADAM HEGSTED By Chandler Spokane Eats
Crave Northwest was a vision born from the mind of local chef, Adam Hegsted. Over the past few years he noticed more and more chef’s in town creating independent restaurant and staying here to watch them grow and see them through. Spokane’s food scene has been blossoming as chef’s are taking some chances and introducing riskier menus. Crave Northwest will serve as a catalyst for keeping the momentum of culinary and arts growth in Spokane. Hegsted wants to strengthen the bond and sense of community among local chefs and creators in town.
