Congrats to the people at Feast Portland for running a well-organized and well-attended event. Wonderful local food and drink (and parties!) as well as national & some Int’l culinary talent and knowledge spread throughout Portlandia. And while we couldn’t get to all the events in this 4-day festival of the foodie, we did manage to take in some of the sights, smells, tastes and a few slurps…
The kick-off Sandwich Invitational event garnered Naomi Pomeroy of Beast the title of best sandwich for her maple-glazed pork belly with watermelon slaw. Honorable mentions went to Sarah Schafer of Irving Street Kitchen for her Cuban sliders (with the wonderful name of “Say Hello to My Little Fritas”) and Aaron Franklin of Franklin Barbecue in Austin, who made taste buds sing with his smoked cheese steak with melted jalapeno cheese.
The Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting gave visitors more than a taste of the local bounty, providing 2 days of great food and drink. Friday night brought an asian-style Night Market to Portland, led by Pok Pok’s Andy Ricker. And Saturday’s High Comfort gave guests even more tasty treats, focusing on re-working classic comfort food.
