Something I had not counted on at The Forager’s Feast these past 2 weekends was the pleasure of meeting so many delightful Portlanders. True, I do get to chat and cook for lots of shoppers at the Farmer’s Market, but the majority of my fine dining kitchen experience has been “behind the scenes”. How refreshing it was to be part of an Open Kitchen event…it was just that.
One very interesting diner I had the opportunity to meet was Cassandra Profita. Cassandra, a journalist blogger, features news and insight on pressing environmental issues of the Pacific Northwest on the Oregon Public Broadcasting blog Ecotrope. Thank you, Cassandra, for this wonderful slideshow of the Feast!
