Grilling Octopus with Departure's Gregory Gourdet

New, 4 comments

Welcome back to Chef in the Kitchen, a recurring Eater photo feature where we boldly go where few diners have gone before — into Portland restaurant kitchens — to get a sneak peek of the chef du jour hard at work.


Onetime hottest chef in Portland Gregory Gourdet knows his way around seafood: Last year, the Departure chef won the Great American Seafood Cook-Off in New Orleans with an Oregon salmon dish. For these last lingering days of summer, Gourdet hangs onto familiar summer flavors — the smoke of a wood-fired grill, the sweetness of avocado and watermelon, pickle-ly brine — in a slow-cooked and grilled Spanish octopus dish.
