Olympia Provisions celebrates Oregon Seafood in partnership with Jacobsen Salt Co. and The Wetlands Conservancy.
Portland, OR (February 19, 2018) – On March 3rd, Olympia Provisions will host a cocktail party to celebrate the Oregon Coast and it’s seafood in partnership with Jacobsen Salt Company. Chef Eric Joppie has prepared a menu that highlights the amazing seafood that comes from the Pacific Northwest and will host the cocktail party in the event space at Olympia Provisions Northwest. The ticketed event will also benefit The Wetlands Conservancy, a local organization dedicated to protecting and conserving Oregon’s greatest wetlands.
Joppie has built his cuisine around close connections with farmers and supporting local agriculture, and this includes a long-standing commitment to sustainable fishing and shellfish farming on the Oregon Coast. Oregon seafood, including oysters, crab, black cod, ling cod, clams, and local salmon can always be found on the menu at Olympia Provisions. “I am so looking forward to raising awareness for a cause that supports a big part of my culinary inspiration” Chef Eric Joppie says of the partnership with The Wetlands Conservancy. For The Wetlands Conservancy, restaurants are the perfect ambassadors to showcase the important role that Oregon estuaries play for the fresh crab, salmon and oysters that are iconic to our state. “We are excited to work with Olympia Provisions to raise consumer awareness around local and sustainable food systems and their link to healthy estuaries and wetlands” explains TWC Executive Director Esther Lev.

About Olympia Provisions
Olympia Provisions, an authentic and house-made charcuterie and meats company based in Portland, Oregon, began as Oregon’s first USDA-certified salumeria and now offers food-lovers five Portland restaurant locations and online product availability nationwide. Salumist and owner, Elias Cairo, grew up first generation Greek-American, with a father who made charcuterie at home. After five years in Switzerland under master chef Annegret Schlumpf, Cairo completed a chef apprenticeship. Utilizing the finest ingredients, he developed his skills and passion for making charcuterie, and the experience affirmed his beliefs – handmade is better. Back in Portland, Cairo set out to approach the craft of charcuterie with purity and patience, recreating a nearly extinct old world technique that’s seldom seen in America.
