Grand Central berry pies
Grand Central's berry pies at last year's Grand Tasting.

It's that time again! In less than three weeks, Feast Portland will transform our fair city into a culinary utopia. The region’s top chefs, artisans, brewers and winemakers will gather to present the best food and drink that Oregon has to offer, with net proceeds benefiting Partners for a Hunger Free Oregon and Share Our Strength. 

This year, Feast Portland returns for its second year with a wide range of events, from speakers and classes to exclusive dinners and product releases, but there’s one event in particular that Portland foodies won’t want to miss: the Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting. Attendees at this all-inclusive feast are invited to taste a dazzling array of local bites and beverages, from pinot noir to berry pies.

With more than 60 participating chefs and vendors, there’s plenty for everyone to enjoy. In between morsels, guests can watch cooking demos from celebrated chefs including Incanto's Chris Cosentino, Lincoln's Jenn Louis, and Le Pigeon's Gabriel Rucker. 

The Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting will be held on Friday and Saturday, September 20 and 21, from 12 to 5 pm. Tickets are $60 and can be purchased online, but if you're feeling lucky, don’t go clicking that link just yet—Eat Beat is giving away two tickets to the Friday Grand Tasting!
