2017 The Convivencia Dinner
Thursday, Sept 14th 7:00pmPlaza Del Toro
Through the history of the Jewish people who fled Spain and Portugal more than 500 years ago comes a cuisine that reflects a safety lost but found again through food. Michael Solomonov of Zahav in Philadelphia is one of the leading U.S. chefs exploring this from a modern Israeli perspective. Sam Smith’s (Tusk, PDX) ground-breaking and vegetable-driven Middle Eastern menus have pushed the boundaries of what Portland has seen in this space. John Gorham (Toro Bravo, PDX) and Kasey Mills (Mediterranean Exploration Company, PDX) draw from extensive research and travels to Israel, Spain and the surrounding areas, to create exceptional plates that are culturally diverse yet cohesive. Come pay tribute to this outstanding cuisine and learn more through every bite.
