Eating Portland

In a city that's become famous for its gastronomic grandiosity, Portland, Ore.'s annual Feast food festival is among the town's most coveted tickets — if you have $165 (per event) laying around. For the unencumbered (by wealth) Feast is a bit like Coachella if you live in L.A., a weekend where a certain breed of foodie flees the city as if from a zombie apocalypse. But it's also about the best way to stroll and sample bites of food from some of the country's finest chefs.

Hands on
One of the festival’s most charming features is that the actual chefs whose names are on the placards also prepare and serve the food. At Night Market, the second in two of three main events, chef Rachel Yang of Portland's Revelry prepares a “Kalbi and Kimchi” dish. Amelia Pape for Newsweek
