Bourdain in Portland


Recommended Posts

Looks like Tony will be in Portland after Seattle. He's scheduled for a class at In Good Taste for Nov. 9th. It's completely full and they have a waiting list twice as long as the number of people in the class at this point. I'm bummed. They said it filled instantly. But at least we have a clue when he's coming. I would guess dinner at the Heathman would be later in the week? We shall see.

Life is a rush into the unknown. You can duck down and hope nothing hits you, or you can stand tall, show it your teeth and say "Dish it up, Baby, and don't skimp on the jalapeños."

A class in good taste? Bourdain?

$65 free signed book included. Moule Normandes (mussels in a creamy sauce of Calvados) and steak au poivre (peppercorn and brandy sauce). I hope they add a second or even a third class. (sigh) The Ruffian dream..steak cooked by Tony. I'm so bummed the class is full.

This time around they will be setting up a special dinner at the Heathman after Tony gets done speaking at Powell's. They are still in the process of figuring out the menu but it will be roughly $50 per person. There will be 110 seats in a banquet room where Tony will be speaking rather than cruisin' the dining room like he did last time. They will have items from Tony's book available on the menu in the dining room all evening. More info later.

Yes, all the same day. Seattle on monday, Portland tuesday, S.F. wednesday...he's going to be one busy guy. There is a correction here. He will not be speaking at Powell's. The talk will be held in a private room at the Heathman (bar will be open) and Powell's will be represented at the Heathman with books for sale.

Great time was had by all. Michael Bazzani from the Heathman brought Tony over to our table and introduced the Portland Food group. When he introduced me to Tony, he replied "We go way back. We did some prison time together." :wink: He and Extramsg had a bonding moment over talking about eating at Charlie Trotter's. :huh: He signed books and sat down and ate a little pate and bullshited with us for a bit. We had a great time.
