Culinary and Craft Beverages

“Portland … is America's new food Eden, a confluence of every fertile trend in contemporary gastronomy.” – TIME Magazine, Nov. 17, 2010

In Portland, a passion for seasonal ingredients — from salmon to Dungeness crab, pears to Marionberries, hazelnuts to chanterelle mushrooms — pervades kitchens throughout the city. Fine-dining restaurants and down-home food carts alike celebrate the region’s bounty with fresh, innovative creations.

Wherever you dine, you’ll find it’s hard not to eat local here — and harder still to resist.

It’s not just chefs who find inspiration in the Portland region’s bounty. Vintners produce ethereal Pinot noirs from the hillsides of the Willamette Valley, while microbrewers craft award-winning beers with Oregon-grown hops. The city is even home to a growing number of distilleries, which use local grains and fruit to create spirits with a distinctly Oregon flavor.
