Last month we had the wonderful opportunity to host Chef’s Week PDX’s epic finale featuring 22 chefs from up and down the west coast creating an unforgettable 20 course dinner. As this was the inaugural Chef’s Week PDX we were unsure of how the chefs would all manage to fit in our kitchen let alone all of their mise en place! We had to get industrious (at one point our cooks were furiously waving serving trays at the smoke detectors while Chef Chesa of Ataula smoked octopus in our hallway) but in the end the dinner was a resounding success! We can’t believe the fortitude of all the people that braved the snow and ice to make it to this sold out event and hope to participate next year.
