Castagna's Matthew Lightner Reveals James Beard Menu

Whether you're calling him "Portland's Rising Star" or simply one of Food & Wine magazine's Best New Chefs of 2010, Matthew Lightner of O's Restaurant of the Year Castagna is clearly having the best year ever — and what better way to celebrate than curating a dinner at the storied James Beard House? Lightner will be cooking up a storm at the NYC foundation venue next Wednesday (if you happen to be heading to the east coast, pick up your tickets here); for the rest of us PDX-tied sad sacks, Lightner revealed the menu on the Beard House blog this morning: Along with pigs' ears and lardo apps, Lightner will represent with an Oregon beef and wheat grass main course.
