Domaine Serene is honored to once again host this famed James Beard series. This multi-course wine dinner will be hosted by the talented Evenstad Estates Culinary team, featuring visiting celebrity Chefs. Domaine Serene’s impressive culinary program is centered on the idea that when it comes to pairings, wine should inspire food, and not the other way around as is so often the case.
James Beard Taste America: Portland Pop-Up draws upon this concept. Local and visiting Chefs first taste an array of distinctive wines, then proceed to create their sublime four-course menu dishes to pair the two elements perfectly. The Taste America: Portland Pop-Up is sure to dazzle, with an extensive menu created by an all-star lineup of Chefs led by hosts Ryan Mead (The Clubhouse at Domaine Serene) and Cody Rodriguez (The Domaine Serene Wine Lounge, Lake Oswego), and featuring Chef Jenn Louis (Owner and Executive Chef at Thirty-Six in Portland), and visiting All-Star Chef Brad Kilgore ( Executive Chef at Alter, Miami). You won’t want to miss this amazing savory evening!
