On Sunday, August 4 at 5 p.m., Chef Gregory Gourdet of Departure teams up with Plate & Pitchfork to turn Diggin’ Roots Farm into a dining room for an evening of food, wine, conversation, and education. Chef Gourdet is joined by Chef Timothy Wastell of Antica Terra, Pastry Chef Kir Jensen of The Sugar Cube, along with Janie Houck of Brooks Wine to present a four-course dinner with wine pairings. Congressman Earl Blumenauer also makes an appearance to offer insight into the Farm Bill, a multifaceted piece of legislation renewed by Congress every five years which shapes federal food and agricultural policy that impacts the health of our farms and community.
Upon arriving at Diggin’ Roots Farm, guests enjoy a glass of wine & an appetizer before setting out for tour of the farm. The tour ends in an al fresco dining room where the team of remarkable chefs present guests with a four-course meal. Throughout the meal guests hear from the people who have grown, caught, raised and crafted the items on the table. Plate & Pitchfork dinners raise funds for Farmers Ending Hunger, an organization whose mission is to eliminate hunger in Oregon by increasing the amount of high-quality food available to hungry local communities through a partnership of farmers, food processors, Oregon Food Bank and the public.
