Join us for another culinary wine and food experience on July 28. We are pleased to welcome Jeff Gordon (not the race car driver) of Gordon Estate Winery for a five course journey of food and wine.

In 1980, Jeff Gordon, along with his wife, Vicki and brother Bill decided to plant wine grapes on a sagebrush-covered slope overlooking the Snake River in southeastern Washington’s Columbia Valley.

Before planting the vineyard, Jeff sought out the expertise of Dr. Walter Clore, the “Father of Washington Wine.” Together the two inspected a 200-acre parcel of sagebrush-covered land near the confluence of the Snake and Columbia Rivers. Dr. Clore strongly approved of the land that would soon become Gordon Brothers.

It’s no secret, we’re all obsessed (again) with the 80s and 90s. The permed hair, leg warmers and seven-layer dip are back, and we’ve enlisted the help of 20 of the hottest chefs from Portland and across America to jog your memory with their own unexpected takes on what we ate back then. Set to a cassette-worthy mix of hair bands, grunge and classic hip-hop, you’ll be channeling your inner Michael or Britney in no time. To make things even more interesting, we’ve turned this into a team competition where half the chefs will represent the 80s and the other half the 90s in a throwback cook-off that’s guaranteed to knock your parachute pants off. Maybe your shoulder pads, too.
