Dining Room DIY

It’s common at Urban Farmer Portland to see a chef sneak through the dining room into the Pantry to grab a jar of pickled vegetables for the charcuterie board or snag some salsify for the pacific wild salmon. But when was the last time you saw a chef harvesting mushrooms from the dining room? With a little help from our buddy Bob at Misty Mountain Mushrooms in Yamhill, OR the Urban Farmer dining room is now home to cultivation of shitake and maitake mushrooms. Bob created us a mushroom friendly environment for 4 blocks of each variety to thrive in a climate controlled setting aided by a timed mister. Harvest, sauté and finish & crisp shallot. Now that’s what we call hyperlocal!

Chef Chris Brings Back Dinner Under The Antlers

Chef Chris Starkus is revitalizing his “Under the Antlers” dinner series by bringing in Top Chef talent from our upstairs neighbors, Departure. Chef Gregory is teaming up with Starkus on a “Gone Fishin” menu that utilizes albacore that the duo will go forty miles out on the Pacific and catch themselves. And that’s not all! While they’re on the coast they will forage for a majority of the herbs and vegetables that they can’t harvest from our rooftop garden. Obviously they have some great ideas but the final menu will be dependent on what they’re able to catch, grow and forage. We can’t wait to see (and taste!) what they come up with!
