In the "Pome" of Your Hand — Chef's Tasting Menu

  • Botanist Bar PDX 1300 NW Lovejoy St Portland United States (map)

As fall begins to take over the Pacific Northwest, pome fruits also come into season. Apples and pears take the stage in this week's menu!

With the crisp crunch of the leaves on the ground, we may look up at the trees bearing pome fruit. Lustrous fields of apples and pears thrive in the cold and rain, preparing for a harvest that bears the Pacific Northwest's our favorite ciders, pies, juices and other favorite fall delicacies. Four appears the magic number in this week's menu: we will be presenting four pears and four apples in — you guessed it — four very different ways, as we aim to bring out the contrasting colors, textures, and flavors this variety of amazing fruits has to offer. We are excited to partner with trail head distillery to show how their products can be used for both drinking and cooking!
