The Parr Lumber Great Summer Chef Off, held at Bladberry Farm on Sauvie Island, brings together select Portland chefs for a BBQ cook-off event to benefit the Foundation’s scholarship program, which provides young Oregonians access to high-quality secondary education and mentorship support. The event also includes a short live auction and raise-the-paddle segment.
The cook-off features the culinary genius of St. Jack, Renata, Pearl Tavern and Plaza del Toro, with dessert served by Portland’s own ‘farm-to-cone’ Salt & Straw. While chefs go head-to-head at the grill guests enjoy wine and beer from Willamette Valley Vineyards, Domaine Drouhin, and Full Sail Brewery, and live entertainment by bluegrass local, Big Foot Mojo.
At the end of the evening, guests cast their vote for the chef with the best dish, each competing for grand prize winnings to benefit an Oregon children’s charity of his or her choice.
All proceeds benefit the Oregon Community Quarterback Scholarship Program.
Come eat and drink with friends while the sun sets over Sauvie Island on a warm summer's evening. Ties not required, flip flops welcome.
