winemaker dinner with the county fair pig...

We will be doing a winemaker dinner at the Original in Portland next Tuesday 7pm August 9th -

We will of course be pouring Big Table Farm wines with each course!

The Original invites you to climb the floating stairway up to there mezzanine, where they will prepare a meal revolving around two things - homegrown Pork and Pinot.

The Original visits the Washington County Fair, where they hand-choose and name the pig for Pig and Pinot II.

And this year’s menu features, for starters, deviled ham and spam served with sweet pickles and warm pretzels.

Then you graduate to a second course of kuala-prepared pork, ribs and ham hock succotash with baked pineapple, before moving on to a second second course of sweet ‘n’ sour pork loin, green bean casserole, mac ‘n’ cheese and applesauce, all of which is fried, even the apple sauce in—your guessed it—pork fat.

And what dinner four-course meal would be complete without a slice of bacon-latticed apple pie paired with a scoop of maple bacon ice cream?

The first course of Pig and Pinot II will be served at 7pm, Tuesday, August 9 - $65. Make your reservations by dialing 503.546.2666
