Join us in celebration of the great James Beard for an evening dining experience created by chefs to honor a chef, born in Portland, summered in Gearhart, and who created a universal persona. This exclusive evening features communal seating with other foodie guests at the Surf Sand ballroom, where you will enjoy the dishes created in collaboration with chefs representing their restaurants in town and on the North Coast. Chefs will introduce signature dishes, explain their inspiration, and tell you where you might experience it again. Wines will be carefully paired and introduced as well. And a portion of the ticket price goes toward the same Culinary Arts program at Seaside High School that JB taught at early in his career. Here you will meet the chefs who for this night will be channeling one very influential foodie, who denied his own chef-status, but who shall ever more be an inspiration for all chefs.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Seaside High School Culinary Arts Program.
