Two Oregon Chefs Are Competing This Spring For The Title Of Top Chef

Oregon’s contributions to the culinary world are numerous; from our iconic Pacific Northwest fare, to our epic, Bacon Maple Bars, Oregon has many culinary claims to fame! This spring, however, The Beaver State is stepping into the national spotlight, as Portland is home to the newest season of “Top Chef.” Not only is this a huge opportunity to showcase Oregon’s culinary scene, but two Oregonians are actually ‘cheftestants’ in the competition, each with their own restaurants. It’s a huge honor, and an exciting time for Oregon chefs — and foodies!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

It’s exciting to see The Beaver State getting the culinary recognition it deserves, and we’re thrilled to cheer on Oregon in this season of “Top Chef!”
