As you know, this year I will be participating as a local blogger and a voice of Portland, one of many. In preparation for the festivities I have prepared a light aperitif of the best Feast Portland recaps from 2014 to help whet our whistles. Whether you are attending or will be living vicariously as I provide my own play-by-play, take a sip of this recap round-up.
For a run down of the Feast fete, look up Jane’s recap at InThePinkAndGreen.com as she explores the Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting, which highlights an impressively curated collection of vendors showcasing the best sampling experience one can ask for.
If you are looking for the inside scoop, Julie’s Kitchen is a resource of pro-tips for the festival foodie that wants to ensure they sample everything. And, as if the plan of attack isn’t enough, just scroll through the incredible images that were captured- platter of bacon anyone?
Feast your eyes on this look back. UrbanBlissLife.com provides a “calorie-free photo-ride” through the best booths, giveaways, and events of the four day function. Marlynn takes us arm-in-arm from plate to plate. A word of warning, eat BEFORE you read this.
My good friend, Erin, at BakeryBingo.com features some of the best extravaganza behind the scenes activities. After we nerd out a little about rubbing elbows with some top food celebs, she captures some favorite food dishes I’m sure she still occasionally dreams about.
For sandwiches, Pech is the authority. Pechluck’s Food Adventures is, well, an adventurous exploration of the Feast Sandwich Invitational. Some traditional, some not so traditional, all feast-worthy sandwich porn.
For ethnic or slightly more adventurous tasters, Ben, at FocusSnapEat.com takes us through the who’s who list of “big name chefs serving small bites” as they attempt to feed the masses, until they run out of food that is. Check out his video at the end of the post. It captures the warm fuzzies of the night while documenting food coma early onset as attendees realize they can’t remember what they’ve been sampling as it all becomes blur!
Sara at SaltWaterCoffee.com gives one of the best recaps of the Tillamook Brunch Village. Brunch cocktails get their due and then we are walked through the “Feast queue.”
Meredith from Martha Chartreuse gave a wonderful post – bringing to life all the necessary objects for the perfect Feast purse. She’s right folks, these items will be crucial to your Feast experience.
At HummingbirdHigh.com, Michelle, also of San Francisco, walks us through a preview of the 2014 Feast event and I think it prepares us nicely for what we can expect for 2015 as well. The Parish is her hummingbird highlight with phenomenal photos and complimentary culinary comments.
A feast for the eyes as well as the palette, these bloggers really take you there. Enjoy!
