Go behind the counter and into the kitchens on the Epicurean Excursion

Epicurean Excursion Walking Tour

Explore Portland's lively culinary landscape to see why we're known as a “foodie's paradise”.

This is the ultimate tour for those who love the Food Network or consider themselves to be foodies. On this leisurely behind-the-counter into-the-kitchen walking adventure, you'll meet local culinary artisans and nibble, sip, and devour your way through Portland.

Your guests will not only give their taste buds a treat, they'll achieve an honorary diploma of culinary knowledge as they experience “first mouth” Portland’s diverse multi-cuisine offerings. And we’ll be sure to slow it down so guests can savor every visual, aroma, texture, and flavor!

Highlights of the Epicurean Excursion include:

  • Visiting 8 to 10 leading artisan vendors and hearing about their creations firsthand
  • Exploring the organic "locavore" philosophy that drives Portland's exciting food scene
  • Sampling items with a local connection, such as fresh Dungeness crab cakes and marionberry sorbettos
  • Exploring the architecture, history, and ambiance of the Pearl District, one of Portland's liveliest neighborhoods

Tastings vary on every tour, but always include vegan and allergy-free options.
