Chris Cosentino entertained the crowds on the KitchenAid Main Demo Stage at the Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting.

Pioneer Courthouse Square, also known as “Portland’s living room,” was transformed in a two-day showcase of all that makes living in the Pacific Northwest so delicious.

An abundance of culinary artisans, wineries, and breweries provided samples of their specialties to the guests at Feast Portland, including a lamb BLT from Les Caves in Corvallis, Ore.; a 94-point 2009 Domain pinot noir from King Estates in Eugene, Ore.; artisan cheese from Face Rock Creamery in Bandon, Ore.; and sweet treats from Petunia's Pies & Pastries and Salt & Straw, both located in Portland.

Top Chef alums Jenn Louis of Lincoln Restaurant and Naomi Pomeroy of Beast, both of Portland, joined Paul Qui of Qui in Austin, Sarah Simmons of City Grit in New York, Chris Cosentino of Cockscomb in San Francisco, and Hugh Acheson of Empire State South in Atlanta to provide entertainment by sharing their culinary prowess on the KitchenAid Main Demo Stage. Acclaimed food writer Ruth Reichl also made an appearance and signed copies of her latest book
