Rewards Network is thrilled to announce our participation in Feast Portland, one of the nation’s top food and drink festivals showcasing world-class culinary talent and the Pacific Northwest’s finest ingredients. As a Gold Sponsor of Feast Portland, we are proud to be part of such an esteemed event dedicated to celebrating Oregon’s bounty.
Feast Portland is teaming up with Rewards Network and top West Coast culinary talent for a once-in-a-lifetime dining experience at a landmark dining program restaurant in Portland. The 2012 “Top Chef Masters” winner Chris Cosentino will join forces with Portland’s Kyo Koo at Bruce Carey’s flagship Pearl District restaurant Bluehour for a culinary collaboration to remember.
A San Francisco master chef and charcuterie ace, Chef Cosentino is America’s most renowned master of offal cookery and a frequent food television contributor including appearances on “Iron Chef America”. Chef Koo is a Portland native who sharpened his skills in Seattle, California, and Basque Country’s highly-acclaimed Mugaritz before leading the kitchen at Bluehour.
This intimate dinner prepared by Chefs Cosentino and Koo will be held at 7 p.m. on September 20, 2014. In addition to the fantastic food, the dinner also includes perfect wine pairings from Anne Amie Vineyards, Chehalem, and J.K. Carriere. Tickets are still available, visit feastportland.com to purchase yours today.
Rewards Network is also participating in the Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting, presented by our Mileage Plan Dining partner Alaska Airlines, from September 19-20. This daytime event features a walk-through tasting of food and drinks from artisans, wineries, and breweries, plus cooking demos from the country’s top chefs.
Program restaurants Pacific Pie Co. and McMenamins will be among the offering lineup on both days, and Rewards Network will have our own booth with crowd-pleasing giveaways promoting our dining programs. Chef Cosentino is also scheduled to be at the Grand Tasting on Saturday for a can’t-miss cooking demonstration.
