Back in August 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. Here we are, already in Week Eight. It's all about the Nuts.
Throughout the Willamette Valley, orchards with stout, spreading trees pop in the fall with the sound of hazelnuts dropping. Crack one open and you’ll swear you taste Oregon. This week baker Elizabeth Beekley from Two Tarts Bakery in Portland grabs a basket and goes harvesting at a farm near Monmouth to gather hazelnuts at the source for one of her many sought-after sweets.
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 Breakfast Guild and plan an Oregon culinary vacation like no other. 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.
