Photo diary: Feast Portland’s Shabbat Shalom Dinner with Jenn Louis
My photo diary for the mega-epic Shabbat Shalom dinner at Feast Portland 2016
You guys, Feast is TODAY. I can’t wait. We start preparing for Feast in June, when the blogger pass applications are due. And then, we look forward to it for months. And now, it’s finally here!
Here’s some of the bites I’m most excited about eating the second I get my hands on them :
Jenn Louis will team up with Alon Shaya (Shaya, New Orleans), Kasey Mills (Mediterranean Exploration Company, Portland) and Michael Shemtov and Bryan Lee Weaver (Butcher & Bee, Nashville) for Shabbat Shalom, an Israeli dinner on Friday. Above is her beautiful challah, which is on the menu for the night!
Vitaly Paley of Imperial, Paley’s Place and Headwaters will be at Smoked!, so I will definitely be stopping by to try what he’s cooking up.
Chef Nina Compton, in town all the way from Compere Lapin in New Orleans, will also be at Smoked!
Doug Adams, who just yesterday announced his first restaurant Bullard will open at the Woodlark Hotel in 2017, will be cooking with USA Pears at the Grand Tasting.
My friends at Oregon Fruit Products will be at the Grand Tasting as well, serving up this delicious slice of pork belly with blackberry gastrique and whipped, herbed goat cheese! Whoa!
And I’m sure there will be so many more! What are you most looking forward to trying this week at Feast? Tell me in the comments!
