30th Annual Bite of Oregon presented by Amica Insurance, August 9th-11th at Tom McCall Waterfront Park
Life Tastes Better Here
Oregon’s largest culinary showcase, the Bite of Oregon – celebrating its 30th year – has just announced that Portland area chef and 2013 James Beard Award winner, Gabe Rucker, will headline its line-up of presenting chefs. Rucker, who has built a big local following through his Le Pigeon and Little Bird Bistro restaurant, will be demonstrating his considerable culinary skills on-site at The Bite on Sunday, August 11, about 3:30 p. m. The event runs August 9-11, at Portland's Waterfront Park.
Also, featured at this year’s Bite will be Chef Tiffany Haugen, a hunter and author of 10 cookbooks plus an array of additional demonstrating chefs. The Bite has also added new elements including Oregon Bounty Chef’s Table – bringing the “Farm-to-Table” concept to a new level, and the “Iron Mixologist” competition highlighting Oregon’s burgeoning spirits boon and patterned after The Bite’s very popular “Iron Chef Oregon” competitions (August 9 and 10).
The Bite of Oregon burst onto the Portland event scene in 1984 and has introduced hundreds of the latest dishes from new and well-known restaurants, helped establish the popularity of the Oregon wine industry, and, most importantly, has raised needed dollars for Special Olympics Oregon. This year, Special Olympics Oregon encourages food, beverage and fun lovers to come and enjoy this always-improving Oregon summer tradition!
