My Feast Portland 2014: Oregon Grand Bounty Tasting

October 1, 2014

After an evening of Feasting on sandwiches in Director Park at the Feast Portland 2014 Sandwich Invitational, I returned downtown for more adventures at the Oregon Grand Bounty Tasting in Portland’s living room: Pioneer Courthouse Square. There, under sunny skies (and shaded cover of tents), every food and drink you could wish for from Oregon producers: wine and cheese, berries and beer, coffee and cakes and cookies and crackers, wild game and wild combinations.

(Shhh…don’t tell anyone, but I felt a little bit like Templeton in Charlotte’s Web.)

It was a silent "e" anyway. #feastpdx /// good grief: the CHEESE.

The great thing after all that Feasting? I came home positively stuffed with the best of the land – then I found Ted at home grilling salmon in our back yard and happily sat down for another full course.

I know I’m biased, but that’s the very best Oregon food around…
