ROOTS 2019 - An Evening Celebrating Portland & the James Beard Foundation
Sat, Nov 23 at 5:30pm
11 James Beard recognized chefs. One night. An unforgettable culinary experience.
Join us for an unforgettable evening at The Nines Hotel hosted by Gregory Gourdet and Departure Restaurant + Lounge! Start your evening with custom cocktails, wine and gourmet experiences prepared by five local culinary stars. The cocktail reception is followed by an unforgettable 10-course dinner prepared by 10 James Beard recognized chefs. ROOTS will be one of the most unique and memorable dining experiences this year and showcase Portland’s most celebrated chefs on one night.
ROOTS is a celebration of Portland’s food and beverage community, Pacific Northwest bounty and the legacy of Oregonian, James Beard. Proceeds from the evening will directly support James Beard Foundation Impact Programs, giving chefs tools to become champions of food policies; and Urban Gleaners, allowing underserved members of our local community more access to food while reducing food waste on our city. We invite you to join us in telling the nation that Oregon and the James Beard Foundation are here to fight for fair food for all.
