Epicurean Walking Tour

Epicurean Tour

Saturday, October 19
Cost: $59

Meet your guide upstairs in the mezzanine library at the Heathman Hotel at 1001 SW Broadway at Salmon (right behind the Hilton)

A unique and delicious walking tour where you’ll taste the foods and sip the drinks – while discovering Portland’s amazing culinary scene. If you watch the Food Network or consider yourself a “foodie,” then this exploration is for you. Portland has become a go-to destination for people who love to eat and we’re the ones who will show you why. Each tour is limited in size so the experience is small and intimate.

Even though you’ll sample dozens of tastes & sips on any given tour, it’s more than just hitting those numbers; it’s all about understanding what makes up the food that satisfy us. While having fun, you’ll also achieve an honorary diploma of culinary knowledge as you experience first hand (or should we say “first mouth”) how fortunate we are to “eat local” and how this locavore philosophy is driving Portland’s exciting food scene. Most importantly, we’ll slow you down and guide you through this culinary tasting adventure as you experience the smells, textures, and tastes that every item brings.
