I heard from a birdie last night that FEAST Portland was going to be announcing its chef lineup today--lo and behold!
I am especially excited at the chance to breathe the same air as Dustin Clark, Jami Curl, Stephanie Izard, Tyler Malek, Thomas McNaughton, Rick Ortiz, Christina Tosi, and Jin Soo Yang.
For those new to the idea of FEAST Portland (as I technically am)--FEAST is a four day celebration of amazing culinary creations. Events during the festival take place all over downtown Portland, feature nationally acclaimed chefs, and dishes are made up of local Oregon ingredients. Proceeds of the long weekend go to Share Our Strength | No Kid Hungry and Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon. This year FEAST will be held September 19th-22nd, and tickets go on sale this Monday. If you plan on attending make sure to check out the Events Schedule. The weekend will be made up of classes and tasting panels as well as brunch and dinner series; main events and speakers series will also be attracting the crowds!
