This team of outstanding chefs is comprised of 10 James Beard Award winners, four Beard Award nominees and three semi-finalists. Each course will be paired with an amazing libation.

ROOTS is a celebration of Portland’s food and beverage community, Pacific Northwest bounty and the legacy of Oregonian James Beard.
