New, 2 comments

Start the scramble for seats. The uber-popular Plate & Pitchfork dinner series — which gets local chefs to throw collaborative, al fresco dinners at farms and wineries around Oregon — has released its summer 2012 event lineup, and tickets go on sale tomorrow (Saturday, March 3).

Reservations to the one-off dinners range from $100-$150, inclusive of the farm visit, a multi-course meal (cooked up by at least two partnered chefs), and wine (or other alcoholic beverage) pairings. As per usual, P&P donates a portion of event proceeds to local organizations, and this year's beneficiaries include Farmers Ending Hunger, the Oregon Tilth Organic Education Center, Food Works, and the Sauvie Island Center.
