Tazón! Pozole!
Thursday, January 18, 2018; 5-9pm
Tournant, 920 NE Glisan Street, Portland

Stop by Tournant to enjoy pozole, a traditional hearty Mexian soup made with hominy, stewed meat, and vegetables. “In many regions of Mexico, pozole is served only on Thursdays and is a wonderful excuse to gather friends and family around the table. We’re continuing this tradition at Tournant with Tazon (which means “bowl” in Spanish) on the Third Thursdays of each month–until it gets too hot for soup!” Bowls of pozole start at $12 and you can opt for pork rojo, chicken verde or verduras (vegan), plus tasty add-ins. No reservations necessary. More information. Continue reading “Portland Area Food Events, January 18-25”

Peking Duck Month
December 1-30, 2017; times vary
Departure Portland, 525 SW Morrison Street, Portland

From the Departure staff, this special month features:

  • The Peking Duck is cured in 5 spice, blanched in honey and Chinese wine, hung to air dry for 5 days, honey glazed and roasted daily, and served with a house-made cherry sauce, candied kumquats, scallions, hoisin, and cucumbers. It is also served with mandarin pancakes, encouraging guests to make mini sandwiches out of the feast.
  • The bits of meat and roasted skin left on the bones are removed and a savory duck fried rice is made with plenty of scallions and rendered duck fat.
  • To ensure 100% usage of the bird, guests start the meal with a cup of clear duck broth made from the ducks’ roasted bones.
  • For a final sweet note, a rich taste of creamy duck fat-coconut milk ice cream with marionberry sauce and buckwheat crumble closes the feast.

Call the restaurant at 503-802-5370 to reserve your delicious duck. Each meal is $106. More information. Continue reading “Portland Area Food Events, December 14-21”
