For all you self-proclaimed foodies out there, I have one word: FEAST.
The very first ever Feast Portland event kicked off last year, with the goal of bringing food enthusiasts together from around the country to celebrate Oregon’s bounty, as well as to raise money for two charities that work to fight hunger.
The event didn’t disappoint; and it quickly became clear that this was meant to be an annual extravaganza. Feast 2013 is right around the corner, and this year’s lineup includes hundreds of vendors (I stopped counting at 204), featuring local superstars like Salt+Straw and Stumptown Coffee – but also including internationally famous players in the food biz like Duff Goldman (Charm City Cakes, Baltimore), Christina Tosi (Momofuku Milk Bar, NYC), Stephanie Izard (Girl & The Goat, Chicago), and more.
You can be hardcore and buy tickets to the whole weekend event, or choose a few of the tasting panels, speaking events, dining series, or classes that interest you most. But you have to act quickly, because tickets are selling out as I’m writing this. If you’re looking for a session that’s still open and gives you a true taste of what the event is all about, consider joining us for the Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting event on Friday or Saturday. It’s going to be a tasting sensation.
See you there!
