It’s a bi-coastal Battle Royale when two teams of renowned chefs represent their home turf and the classic flavors that define them at Feast Portland’s main event kick off. Which side of the Mississippi rules when it comes to amazing eats? Forget the regional food stereotypes - East Coast vs West Coast will focus on dishes that tell a story as rich as what’s being served, featuring iconic and city-defining restaurants from Portland, New Orleans, New England and more and inspired regional beer, wine and spirits. Does West Coast Dungeness crab have a leg up on Maine lobster? Does a Kentucky Old Fashioned have a worthy western rival? The winning team will be selected by an esteemed panel of food and beverage writers and influencers. We won’t hazard a guess as to the outcome. But we do know this much: winners get a raucous victory celebration and bragging rights for their side of the map.

It's Feast's first event at Tom McCall Waterfront Park, but that's not the only thing that makes this event big. It's actually the biggest Feast event to date, with more fine wines from the Northwest and around the globe. More artisans—from cheesemakers and chocolatiers to bakers and brewers. Cocktails, panel discussions and a live podcast lounge? Sure! There’s more to see, do, sip and sink your teeth into. It’s a Big Feast for your eyes, too, plopped down in the quintessential Portland location – with the Willamette River and snow-capped peaks in one direction and Portland’s photogenic skyline in the other. It’s gonna be Big, we say. Big with a capital B.

    It’s a bi-coastal Battle Royale when two teams of renowned chefs represent their home turf and the classic flavors that define them at Feast Portland’s main event kick off. Which side of the Mississippi rules when it comes to amazing eats? Forget the regional food stereotypes - East Coast vs West Coast will focus on dishes that tell a story as rich as what’s being served, featuring iconic and city-defining restaurants from Portland, New Orleans, New England and more and inspired regional beer, wine and spirits. Does West Coast Dungeness crab have a leg up on Maine lobster? Does a Kentucky Old Fashioned have a worthy western rival? The winning team will be selected by an esteemed panel of food and beverage writers and influencers. We won’t hazard a guess as to the outcome. But we do know this much: winners get a raucous victory celebration and bragging rights for their side of the map.

    Our favorite reds and whites are fantastic on their own, but wine is a social drink—it mixes well with others. Join this panel as we taste and talk through the use of wine in cocktails and punches, delving into details like special considerations for mixing with wine, the flavors and ingredients that have special love for the grape, and how to use wine to make party punches more sessionable.

  • 2019 Vaguely Spanish

    Fun-Size Events

    5:00PM - 7:30PM Stumptown Coffee Roasters


    See you in 2020!

    When you think of Spanish fare, what pops into your head? Tapas and a pitcher of sangria, maybe? Well, forget your preconceptions for one night. From big Basque ribeye steaks to seafood from Galicia to Valencian paella, Spanish cuisine is intensely regional, varied and beyond definition. Add seven boundary-pushing chefs, and you have a spectacular, Sunday evening finale to four days of Feast festivities. Chef Aaron Crowder (Cervo's, New York City) joins local luminaries José Chesa (Ataula), John Gorham (Toro Bravo), Javier Canteras (Urdaneta), Scott Ketterman (Crown Paella), Althea Grey Potter (Oui! Wine Bar and Restaurant), and Maylin Chavez (Olympia Oyster Bar) for this can’t miss event. On the menu: both classic and border-blurring cuisine, accompanied by a collection of fine wines from the Iberian Peninsula and points beyond.

    Dinner Series

    5:30PM The Nightwood Society


    See you in 2020!

    When Elias Cairo (Olympia Provisions) isn’t making salami, he’s probably hunting, fishing or grilling in his backyard. Chef Jeremy Charles (Raymond’s Restaurant, Newfoundland) has become one of Canada’s most regarded chefs by making the rugged landscape, fish and game of Newfoundland a global dining destination. Bonus: he’ll be signing his new Phaidon book, Wildness: An Ode to Newfoundland and Labrador at this event. They’ll be joined by festival friend Brad Leone (host of the Bon Appétit show It’s Alive) and meat master Chris Cosentino (Jackrabbit, Portland), one of America’s foremost proponents of game and offal cookery. We can’t imagine a better way to end your Feast weekend.
