Published Jul 24th, 2014

The theme this year is Celebrating Oregon’s Bounty and in this regard, Oregon has much to boast about. Of course there will be an assortment of savory and sweet food offerings to satisfy your palate with a wide array of restaurants, food carts, dessert purveyors and more than 20 flavors of Oregon craft beer and wine.

The Bite is excited to welcome back the Oregon Bounty Chef’s Table, where they are partnering with eight different Oregon Agricultural Commissions who will be featuring a variety of locally grown and produced products. The various Commissions will be joining forces with Pro Chef’s Oregon, a non-profit chapter of the American Culinary Federation comprised of chefs, and students dedicated to the profession of food preparation. Collectively, they will be preparing some delicious bites featuring Oregon seafood, beef, blackberries, blueberries & raspberries, potatoes, and dairy to name a few.   Come celebrate and enjoy some of Oregon’s magnificent culinary bounty!
