Wahoo! In just under two weeks, one of the most fun food events in Portland will be here! Taste of the Nation will be back Tuesday, April 29th at the Crystal Ballroom!
I seriously love this event. With over 25 of the best chefs Portland has to offer and about 30 local wineries, distilleries and breweries, it is a massive, amazing all-you-can-eat, all-you-can-drink free for all. (View the TOTN’s Portland page for the full list of participants.) Each of the participants set up a booth and serve up specialty food or drinks made just for this event. A lot of booth and guests all get crammed into the West End concert hall, so it gets a little stuffy and overwhelming. But it’s well worth it for how much good food and drinks there are. And because there are so many chefs participating, despite the crowds, there are rarely lines.
