Portland Farmers’ Market Chef Challenge

The second annual COUNTRY Chef Challenge is on for Monday, July 16 from 11:30am to 1pm at the Pioneer Courthouse Square Market!

This year’s celebrity chef line-up includes Gregory Gourdet of Departure, Sarah Schafer of Irving Street Kitchen and David Padberg of Park Kitchen.  Come cheer on your favorite chef as they battle for the Master of the Market title.

The chefs will have 15 minutes to gather ingredients from the market, 30 minutes to cook their market-inspired dish for the judges, that include these discerning palates: Mike Thelin of FEAST Portland, Allison Jones of Portland Monthly and Jen Stevenson of Under the Table with Jen.

KGW’s Drew Carney will host the event and give audience members the chance to win $100 gift card to the participating chefs’ restaurants, free canvas shoppings, and more!
