Adventurous Blind-Tasting Nights Begin at Ecotrust with an All-Women Chef Line-up
Starting February 7, Ecotrust and Edible Portland are bringing back Blind-Tasting Bingo, a game of sensory deprivation and heightened exploration that first premiered at the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art’s Time-Based Art (TBA) Festival in September 2012.
The new six-month series, running from February through July, features six brilliant Portland women chefs. Alongside the games, local beverage artisans New Deal Distillery, Merit Badge Co., and Bull Run Distillery will take different nights hosting a cash bar with specialty cocktails created for each chef’s flight. All ticket proceeds benefit Ecotrust’s work to create a robust regional food system and provide the Portland community with events that explore issues of place, food, and wellbeing.
