Cook These Books

Cookbook Fest

Local foods. Portland’s incredible dining scene. Cooking. Eating. Reading. If you love these things as much as we do, we’ve got an event that you won’t want to miss!

On Saturday, October 12, from 10am-1pm we’re dishing up our first ever Cookbook Fest at the PSU Market. You’ll have the chance to meet your favorite Portland chefs and authors, who will be on hand with their latest books.  Stop by to chat with the authors, purchase signed books for yourself or as gifts, watch cooking demos, take home recipes, and enjoy sample dishes from their new cookbooks.

Here’s the all-star lineup:

Karen Brooks, The Mighty Gastropolis

Lynne Curry, Pure Beef

Sasha Davies, The Cheesemaker’s Apprentice

John Gorham & Liz Crain, Toro Bravo

Ellen Jackson, The Chefs Collaborative Cookbook

Diane Morgan, Roots

Gabriel Rucker & Andrew Fortgang, Le Pigeon

Laurie Wolf, Portland Oregon Chef’s Table

Also, be sure to head over to the demonstration stage to watch these three chef/authors cook up seasonal recipes from their books using ingredients from the market:
