I have had the opportunity to do 3 Portland Food Adventures (PFA). My first one was at Paadee, then onto Hokusei, and finally at Le Pigeon. I have had my eye on several others, but for now those are the ones I have been able to attend. Now Portland Food Adventures has added something on to these dining experiences, “In the Kitchen.” This is something that I have not yet done. The cool part is, you can enter to win and actually experience this before me. Then you can tell me all about this. Plus you can take a friend as I am giving away 2 seats.
Here is what the evening will look like, you will go to Standard TV and Appliance in Beaverton on January 23rd at 6:45. Chef Sarah Schafer from Irving Street Kitchen will do a cooking demo/lesson. This is such a neat opportunity to learn from the best and enjoy the meal as well. Not only that, but you will have the opportunity to talk with the chef and ask questions, which I think is one of the greatest things about doing PFA’s. I like to hear the stories behind where their passion came from and how it has grown. If you are still wondering about this dining experience check out this post here. This was from a previous “In the Kitchen” with Vitaly Paley and Patrick McKee. (photo above)
I almost forgot one my favorite parts about PFA’s. You meet new people. All dining is community style and part of the experience is meeting your neighbors. I have even gone alone and had the best time because everyone is there to meet new people, so it’s really easy to settle into.
Take the time to check out Portland Food Adventures Facebook page. You can follow along there with any upcoming PFA’s or “In the Kitchen” events. At the end of February Cocotte, is going to be the destination of a PFA. I chose Cocotte as my favorite dining experience in 2013. I love this place and I am hoping to attend this one because I am excited to meet the chef.
