A month of so ago I introduced you to Wanderfeast, a celebration of food, foodies, and your chance for an authentic Oregon Culinary Vacation. From the wine crush in Applegate Valley to the chanterelles hiding in the Coast Range to the fish and game that frolic in every nook and cranny of Oregon, ten top chefs will chase after ten of Oregon’s finest epicurean products. It’s ten weeks of foodie bliss, from one end of Oregon to the other. And you’re invited to come along.
Week One - Throughout Oregon, you’ll find handcrafted cheese in places where you can sample it, watch it being created, and even learn to make it yourself. This week, James Beard-nominated chef Cathy Whims of Nostrana visits a small dairy in the Willamette Valley and gets her hands on the udder of a jersey cow, then turns the milk into artisan cheese
Design your own Wanderfeast and possibly win a Culinary Vacation of a lifetime. And even if you don't win we encourage you to create your own Oregon Culinary experience by visiting the member inns of the Oregon Bed and Breakfat Guild. Our innkeepers take breakfast seriously, serving freshly ground coffee, more often than not roasted locally, along with sweet and savory delights created from the very best of what our Oregon producers have to offer. You might be treated to homemade scones or a frittata with fresh vegetables and herbs from our gardens or a local farmers market. Ginger poached pears, crab souffes. Oregon's Bounty is as endless as our imagination so you are sure to experience a culinary delight at our breakfast tables.
