Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting Coupons and Deals
As a food city, Portland is something of a paradox—a community whose reputation for featuring high-quality local ingredients has drawn food-obsessed travelers from thousands of miles away. Enjoy the best of Oregon's autumn harvest for yourself—and rub elbows with star chefs from across the nation while you're at it—with this Gourmet offer: $60 for single-day VIP access to Feast Portland's Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting, a full-scale tasting event presented by Bon Appétit magazine and featuring the city's top restaurants, wineries, breweries, and artisans. The festivities will take place in Pioneer Courthouse Square from 2 to 5 p.m. on September 21 and 22 (a two-day VIP pass is also available for $89), where your VIP pass will earn you admission to the event one hour early. Under a crisp, early autumn sky, you'll browse the festival at your leisure, with exclusive access to unlimited tastings from Oregon's bounty of world-class produce, meat, seafood, wine, and craft beers. In addition to savoring excellent fare, you'll also view live cooking demonstrations from a star-studded lineup of celebrity chefs—including Cris Cosentino (of Incanto and Boccalone in San Francisco), Top Chef winner Paul Qui (of Uchiko in Austin, TX), Naomi Pomeroy (of Beast in Portland), and April Bloomfield (of The Spotted Pig, The John Dory, and The Breslin in New York City)—which, along with a VIP gift bag, will help you savor the experience for years to come. The contingent of chefs and food lovers in attendance may be national, but the food itself comes from right around the corner.
