OregonCooking Classes, Cooking Vacations, Foodie Tours, Culinary Getaways

Oregon’s soil produces amazing fruits and vegetables, like the grapes that are turned into award-winning wine and the hops with which handcrafted beer is brewed. The ocean provides sustainably caught crab, salmon, and tuna. Oregon grows most of the world’s hazelnuts and marionberries, and the forests are home to exotic mushrooms. Best of all, Oregon has chefs who know what to do with all this bounty. There’s no better way to celebrate all Oregon's culinary goodness than by taking a cooking vacation around the state to see where it grows and how it's prepared. If you like food, you’re invited!
