CENTRAL EASTSIDE/SOUTHEAST: House Spirits Distillery drums up another party on Sunday, August 28, with its first-ever Kraftskiva Crawfish Party — a local take on the traditional Swedish end-of-summer bash. The event will pair complimentary tastes of the house libation — Krogstad Aquavit — with bites by Chop (crawfish, meats, and cheese), Broder (pickled herring), and Viking Soul Food (lefse). The 11am-5pm event is free and open to all ages. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN: The Portland Farmers Market adds another cooking competition to the mix with the inaugural COUNTRY Chef Challenge (sponsored, obvs, by the obnoxiously all-caps COUNTRY Financial) scheduled for this Monday, August 22. Three Eater-38-approved chefs — Tabla's Anthony Cafiero, Ned Ludd's Jason French, and Nostrana's Cathy Whims will compete for the right to call themselves "Master of the Market," with a challenge that involves shopping at the market and using the ingredients to whip up a meal under pressure, Iron Chef-style. The competition throws down at 11:30am. [EaterWire]

SOUTHEAST: Robert Reynolds' Chef Studio welcomes Seattle-based cookbook author Becky Selengut for a one-off demonstration and dinner on Sunday, August 21. Selengut will cook up a meal based on her most recent book, Good Fish: Sustainable Seafood Recipes from the Pacific Coast, and the $125 fee includes class, dinner, and signed copy of the book. Reservations here. [EaterWire]
