America's First Foodie Dinner
This annual dinner pays homage to the father of American cuisine, James Beard, who was born in Portland and spent his summers in Gearhart. At a time when French cooking was considered the only food with culinary sophistication, Beard introduced Americans to the food of his childhood, the food of the Pacific Northwest. The chef and America’s first “foodie” with a multicourse dinner based on Beard’s love of the Oregon Coast. Courses are paired with Edgefield wines and cocktails.
