Savouring the Delights of ‘America’s New Food Eden’

story by: Inspire Magazine

There is a good reason Portland, Oregon has become one of the top culinary destinations in the United States, often appearing next to such places as New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago when it comes to the quality of its dining scene. From the hundreds of chef owned and operated gourmet street food carts to scores of intimate dining rooms where chefs harness the freshest ingredients to create amazingly unique dishes, Portland is a city celebrated for its creativity, commitment to quality and culture of using locally grown and raised ingredients.

In fact, Time Magazine – one of the U.S.’s most influential publications – heralded Portland as “America’s New Food Eden” for its incredibly unique, diverse and authentic food culture. A visit to Portland will show you why that honour, among the city’s numerous other accolades, aren’t just well earned, but well deserved. You will dine on cuisine created from ingredients that were harvested just miles away and days if not hours before they find your plate. Time your visit to experience FEAST Portland for 17-20 September, 2015 and savour one of the country’s premier food festivals.

Yet, there is much more than just food to whet your palate in Portland. Sip on single-origin, small batch roasted coffees from farms throughout the world that will challenge your assumptions of bad American coffee. Try a craft beer brewed fresh in one of the city’s 56 breweries (76 in the entire Greater Portland Metro Area) – that is more breweries than any other city in the world. Shop tax-free in the stores of local fashion designers and small boutiques spread among the national retailers in the city’s downtown core.

Venture outside of Portland and explore Oregon’s Wine Country where you can taste world class Pinot Noirs and Sauvignon Blanc that rival your favourite New Zealand and Australian brands. Enjoy the magnificent Oregon landscape filled with majestic mountains, beautiful rivers, towering forests and pristine coastline.
