Acclaimed Chicago chef Stephanie Izard (a Top Chef winner, 2011 James Beard nominee, and 2010 Food & Wine Best New Chef winner) will make a Portland pit stop on her national "Girl & the Goat Tour," a combination book tour and fundraiser for Share Our Strength, the national organization that aims to end childhood hunger in America.
On October 24, Izard is scheduled to cook a collaborative meal with Andy Ricker at Ricker's Old Town spot Ping (in August, Izard was particularly psyched at the idea of a PDX visit). Keep an eye out on the official site for ticket information, as it becomes available. This one will go fast.
