Portland’s 2nd Annual Chefs Challenge

18 12 2010

The menu.

Recently I attended the 2nd annual Chefs Challenge at Deschutes Brewery, a competition between 6 famous Portland chefs.  It was an evening of really interesting dishes, paired with very special beers.  A really fun event that I hope to attend every year.

Here are the chefs:

Kurt SpakAlba Osteria

Ben DyerLaurelhurst Market / Ate-Oh-Ate

Adam Higgs, Acadia

Jeff Usinowicz, Deschutes Brewery Portland Pub

Scott Shampine, Davis Street Tavern

Dave Anderson, Genoa

So here is my evening in pictures…

This was the beer maker guy for Deschutes, he detailed each beer for each course. Can't remember his name :/

The beers were so special they came in special glasses.

Look at 'em all!

This is Chef Jeff Usinowicz from Deschutes, he makes consistently great food, I'm a big fan.

It's the wining dish... Cotechino sausage with braised lentils and blood orange zabaione from David Anderson of Genoa. I didn't eat it, but it looked quite good.

The end of the event, the winner David Anderson in the middle and the owner of Deschutes on the right. Great event, great night.
