Chefs Gregory and Matt’s recent excursion to NYC to tout Oregon’s inaugural “FEAST Portland” festival in September has garnered much attention from local and national foodies alike. The Bon Appetit Magazine sponsored event, dubbed “Oregon Food Assault” brought a very well manicured group of Oregon chefs and artisans elite to NYC to represent Portland’s Bounty for the very limited and exclusive media only event. Not only did Chef Gregory’s Chinook Salmon Made Three Ways steal the spotlight at the prestigious event, held at lower Manhattan’s Saxon+Parole, it also made the cover of Portland’s largest distributed daily newspaper, the Oregonian. Gregory also received the “Represent Portland” award. If this is any indication of September’s amazing foodie take over in Portland, Chef Gregory and Departure will certainly be at the front of the pack!
