Portland Wild Food Cook-Off !

Aho, Portlanders: This weekend as part of a visual art conference called Open Engagement, which is open to the public, there will be a Wild Food Cook-Off!

Writes artist & organizer Michelle Illuminato, “The Wild Food Cook-Off invites home cooks, chefs, foragers, and cart owners to submit their best ‘dish’ using foods available for free from the land, waters and wildness of Oregon. The public will vote for the Wildest Chef in Portland (there is a trophy, too!). We’ll all win, as we experience food sensations like dandelions, wild leeks, mushrooms, morels, fiddle-heads, huckleberries, or even shellfish or trout.”

The event will be Saturday on the Portland State University campus in the MK Gallery, 2000 SW 5th Avenue (Art Building, 2nd floor, Rm 210). Set up is in the morning with tasting from 11:30 am – 12:30 pm. Info & sign-up is here!
