Well, I did it. I got to experience Feast Portland. I lived in Portland for about 4 years and never made it to Feast. We move to Seattle and I end up making a weekend out of traveling to this spirited food festival and wondered why it was only my first time. As great as it is making our life in Seattle, I clearly miss Portland. Feast embodied the Portland food scene. Local ingredients, creative dishes and bites, beautiful presentations, endless booze flowing, and constant foodie conversations. Incredible, hardworking people were behind every dish and drink. I was honored to receive a blogger pass, which granted me access to the Grand Tastings, Brunch Village, and the Food 52 Ice Cream Social along with a few other smaller classes and events. I had an excellent time at this unique-to-Portland food event which donates to Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon. “Feast is more than just a food and drink festival” as described on the Feast Portland website. It’s a movement that you just have to experience yourself.
