Food experiences guided by the seasons and our surroundings, whether cooking over live-fire on a mountaintop or in our private dining room.

About Tournant

Tournant is a boutique culinary services company and event space in Portland, Oregon, operated by Jaret Foster and Mona Johnson. The classically trained chefs honed their craft cooking on both coasts and met while working for the Portland Farmers Market. Their approach to food reflects a sense of place and ceremony, drawing inspiration from the seasons and local bounty from the land and sea. Known for their emphasis on live-fire cooking and hands-on communal feasts, Jaret and Mona love to turn a meal into an experience.

As a welcoming and well-appointed space for both private and public events, the Tournant dining room hosts a spirited blend of pop-up dinners, holiday parties, supper clubs, company retreats, birthday celebrations and cooking classes.

Dedicated to the craft of good cooking and drawing inspiration from the seasons and bounty of the Northwest, Tournant catering is an extension of Jaret and Mona’s dining room and philosophy.
