Tournant Oyster Social ft. Le Page Food & Drink

LePage-Vibrant-Farm-Dinner-209-FAVE.jpg

For our July Oyster Social we are so delighted to welcome Chef Risa Lichtman of Le Page Food & Drinks to the Tournant kitchen! 

Risa has been cooking in restaurants throughout Portland, San Francisco & New York for a decade, including Pizzeria Delfina, Blue Hill Stone Barns, Sweedeedee & Handsome Pizza.  Her biggest efforts center on gathering community around food through pop-ups, fundraisers, and community-building dinners. 

She started hosting pop-ups out of her home in 2011, treating diners to seasonal, multi-course dinners called Sunday Supperings.  She is passionate about using ingredient-driven food as a means of building community, a positive food culture, and sustainable food practices by dining together with intention.

Fresh back from an inspiring trip through Italy and Greece, Risa will be providing a menu of rustic, Mediterranean-inspired food with a PNW heart, featuring produce from small, local farmers.  Her food has been described as elevated comfort food, perfect for sharing with friends.  

In addition to Risa's dishes, we'll be popping a selection of the freshest NW oysters and Matt from Merit Badge will be behind the bar, shaking up refreshing cocktails.

Tournant Oyster Social ft. Eva Kosmas Flores

All photos by Eva Kosmas Flores

For June's oyster social, we're so pleased to have a dear and wonderful friend in the house. Eva Kosmas Flores is a quadruple threat. She's a celebrated photographer who gardens, cooks and shares recipes and inspirations from her life in the Pacific Northwest through her blog, Adventures in Cooking. She also happens to be one of the kindest, most humble and supportive people we know.

We are lucky to collaborate with Eva in a variety of ways--from Secret Supper events to cooking for her photography and foodstyling workshops around the world--and now, as a special guest in our dining room, where we will celebrate her new cookbook, First We Eat.

Eva's cookbook is not only ravishingly beautiful (see below for proof!) but is also packed with mouthwatering recipes inspired by her garden, the seasons and the bounty of the Pacific Northwest. Together we will feature dishes from her new book and Eva will be on hand throughout the evening to chat with you and sign copies of First We Eat.

Eva is planning to prepare spring pea hummus on pita to celebrate her Greek heritage, as well as whiskey glazed jasmine rolls for a sweet ending. Yum! We'll be popping a selection of the freshest NW oysters, of course, as well as preparing a few other tasty recipes from Eva's glorious book.

The super suave Matt from Merit Badge will be behind the bar, shaking up refreshing cocktails, including a seasonal libation from First We Eat.

Join us!  No reservations necessary, just drop by for a la carte selections and restaurant-style seating. Hope to see you at the table, friends.

Natty by Nature III - A wine bar pop up @ Tournant

image3.jpeg

It was so nice, we're doing it thrice!

Natty by Nature is Dana Frank’s ode to two things she loves: natural wine and old school hip hop. It's a convivial night filled with fantastic wines by the glass paired with tasty bites and fresh beats from the 80s and 90s.

The casual, wine bar-style evening includes a welcome glass of wine and food rolling out in waves throughout the night. There will be oysters, of course, and cured meats galore, plenty of tasty tapas-style bites and an enormous pan of chicken and chorizo fideos, which is like paella but made with tiny pasta.

Known as one of Portland’s top-notch wine pros, Dana has been nationally recognized for her wine lists at Grüner, Ava Gene’s, and Dame. She’s dedicated her career to the farmers and winemakers who work organically and/or biodynamically, those fine folks who make their wine with nothing but grapes.

Reservations highly recommended. This is a fun and lively evening, with guests mingling, wine flowing, and food served progressively, therefore we do away with formal seating in favor of a more sociable gathering with room to stand or sit as you please.

Tickets include food and one glass of wine to get you started. Additional wine for purchase all evening at the bar.

Can't commit? We'll be selling tickets at the door for $50/person (if not sold out) or you can just stop by for a glass of wine and good vibes!

Rogue Serenade

This is it. A food, music and adventure-lover's dream come true! We're thrilled to be partnering up with Serenade and Northwest Rafting Company for a scenic four-day trip down the Rogue River, where guests paddle and explore by day, then gather for music and feasts around the fire at night.

Serenade founders, Austin and Kaela both have backgrounds as river guides and it was only a matter of time before they brought Serenade to a river. This trip is a culmination of everything they love and represent through Serenade: food, music, and community.

Imagine spending the day meandering the Rogue, soaking up the wild beauty of the area, followed by a live-fire communal feast under the stars with intimate campfire performances by Jenner Fox and Austin Quattlebaum...then waking up and doing it all over again.

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

  • Four days of rafting the Rogue River.

  • Live sets of music daily, plus floating serenades.

  • Three nights of three-course meals, prepared by Tournant over live-fire and paired with local Oregon beverages. 

  • Side hikes through lush green lined creeks, on the Rogue River trail, and jumping rocks.

  • Opportunities to see bald eagles, osprey, bears, and lots more wildlife.

Tournant Oyster Social ft. Dana Frank

We've been teaming up with natural wine goddess Dana Frank these past couple of months for our Natty by Nature collabs, where she's on wine, we're on food and her hubby's on the old school hip hop sountrack. So. Much. Fun. Look for another later this month, but in the meantime...

Dana will be joining us as guest sommelier for our monthly Oyster Social! She'll be curating an enchanting list of glass pours to celebrate the return of the warmer weather. Expect an array of exuberant bubbles, fresh whites and charming roses from her favorite natural wine producers.

Known as one of Portland’s top-notch wine pros, Dana has been nationally recognized for her wine lists at Grüner, Ava Gene’s, and Dame. She’s dedicated her career to the farmers and winemakers who work organically and/or biodynamically, those fine folks who make their wine with nothing but grapes.

We'll be popping a selection of the freshest NW oysters and offering tasty tapas-style plates to complement Dana's wine selections. This weather has us dreaming about steamed clams, crudo and ceviche, luscious burrata, perhaps some tinned seafood and all the spring produce.

Join us!  No reservations necessary, just drop by for a la carte selections and restaurant-style seating. Hope to see you at the table, friends.

Spring Equinox Hot Pot Night w/Biwa @ Tournant

Kanpai! We're reprising our super fun and interactive hot pot night with Biwa--and this time there is much to celebrate! The 11th birthday of Biwa, the glorious arrival of spring and the simple joy of slowing down and connecting with one another over a shared meal.

There is a special quality to cooking over fire together at the table that is hard to describe… a slightly anxious anticipation that quickly gives way to a delicious glow of warmth, accomplishment and friendship, lots of smiling, lots of little cups of sake and frosty beers, and noodles to finish.

For $25/person all guests will get virtually unlimited broth, vegetables and noodles in your very own shared hot pot. You'll be doing the cooking right at your table! Ota Tofu, dumplings, meatballs, pork belly, feisty shrimp and more special items will be available to purchase a la carte to embellish your hot pot.

While we aren’t taking reservations and two to six guests is an ideal group size, please feel free to come by yourself or with the whole team…we will work it out and it will be a lot of fun.

Tazon Pozole @ Tournant

Pozole is good for the soul.

This traditional Mexican soup is hearty and nourishing, brimming with toothsome hominy and tender stewed meat or seasonal vegetables and is served with fresh garnishes such as cabbage, chopped onion, radish and lime that you can add to taste for your perfect bowl. 

In many regions of Mexico, pozole is served only on Thursdays and is a wonderful excuse to gather friends and family around the table. We're continuing this tradition at Tournant with Tazon (which means “bowl” in Spanish) on the Third Thursdays of each month--until it gets too hot for soup! 

Steamy bowls start at $12 and you can choose from pork rojo, chicken verde or verduras (vegan), plus traditional and not so traditional add-ins. Order a cold cerveza, margarita or paloma, then close your eyes and imagine you're in sunny Mexico.

Tournant Oyster Social ft. Ippai

We couldn't be more thrilled to have Chef Jane Hashimawari of Ippai in the kitchen for our March Oyster Social! 

You may have enjoyed Jane's food at Castagna or Wafu, where she honed her craft or at the Hollywood Farmers Market where she once had a booth serving warm bowls of Japanese curry and traditional vegetable driven salads. Currently, you can find her at North Portland's beloved Milk Glass Mrkt, where she creates beautiful, seasonal plates for the bustling cafe and also puts on Ippai, her monthly Japanese comfort food pop up.

Her monthly dinners are a blend of nostalgia and craft, where Jane often features her favorite childhood foods. Ippai, meaning “full” in Japanese, captures the warmth, comfort and happiness of her mom’s kitchen growing up. 

Come enjoy dishes from Chef Jane, both comforting and new--SEE MENU BELOW!--along with fresh NW oysters and inspired cocktails from Matt of Merit Badge.

--SORRY FRIENDS, THIS DINNER IS SOLD OUT!--

This will mark our third fundraiser dinner with Classic Wines Auction and we couldn't be more proud to support an organization that last year alone raised $3.5 million for local nonprofits whose programs support children and families in need.

Here's how it works: You purchase tickets to a dinner featuring different chefs partnered with local wineries, then enjoy a five-course meal in a convivial setting paired with beautiful wines, knowing that your ticket has helped sustain good works in our community. Simple! And meaningful.

There are many dinners to choose from and we'd be delighted if you'd join us at Tournant on February 27th, where we'll be creating a seasonal meal with our signature flavors, each course with a lovely pairing from Brooks Wine. We have a special place in our hearts for Brooks--both the people and the wines--as they have supported us from the very beginning. It is an honor and a pleasure to partner with them each time.

We have a seafood-centric feast planned to showcase everything from their lovely Rieslings and other white varietals to their celebrated Pinot Noirs. Expect oysters, of course, and a parade of other gifts from the sea and the seasons.

We have the perfect way to celebrate Lunar New Year on February 16th. We're inviting Gabe Rosen from Biwa to the Tournant kitchen to put on a super fun and festive hot pot party!

In Japan, hot pot is called nabe. It's not only a primal and ancient way of cooking--put whatever you have into the simmering pot, eat it and then relish the incredible and nourishing broth (with noodles, perhaps?)--but also a wonderful way to slow down, connect and share a memorable meal with friends and dear ones.

Here's how it works: For $20/ person all guests will get virtually unlimited broth, vegetables, and noodles in your very own shared hotpot. Bring some friends and family along and cook together at the table. We will also have chicken and pork belly, clams and live shrimp, Ota tofu and other delights to purchase ala carte and add to your pot. You will be doing the cooking! 

What else? There will absolutely be sake, wine, and free-flowing beers and we'll be making a selection of side dishes and drinking snacks for the evening as well, plus cookies for dessert.
 
While we aren’t taking reservations and two to six guests is an ideal group size, please feel free to come by yourself or with the whole team and we'll work it out. Come get your nabe on with us!

We're so thrilled to kick off the first annual Shuck Portland Oyster Week! May this Oyster Social with guest chef Shauna Galante serve as your gateway to all sorts of oyster-centric fun throughout Portland from February 2-9!

The thing about Chef Shauna Galante's food is that not only is it gorgeous to look at, it also makes you feel so damn good. Through her Secret Language pop ups, she quietly and artfully redefines "health food" for a new era. In this bacon and biscuit bombed city, Shauna's food is like a deep, cleansing breath of fresh air. With her clean, vibrant flavors and thoughtfully sourced and prepared ingredients, you will leave feeling nourished on so many levels. 

Shauna honed her skills and palate at some of Portland's most beloved restaurants (Coquine, Mae, Biwa and Willow among them) which shines through in her nuanced and artfully arranged plates that deftly combine balanced flavors and textural contrasts with precise technique. Like with all great food, the dishes Shauna prepares are highly personal. It is the food she likes to eat and share with others, from the heart.

Come enjoy uplifting dishes from Chef Shauna (crisp salads, bright ceviches and satisfying grain and vegetable dishes are signatures) along with fresh NW oysters and other raw bar treats from us. Matt from Merit Badge will be shaking up some mean cocktails at the bar.

Steamy bowls start at $12 and you can choose from pork rojo, chicken verde or verduras (vegan), plus traditional and not so traditional add-ins. Order a cold cerveza, margarita or paloma, then close your eyes and imagine you're in sunny Mexico.

Tournant Oyster Social ft. Jolie Laide

IMG_1224.JPG

What a special treat to welcome Chef Vince Nguyen to the Tournant kitchen! At Jolie Laide, Vince's weekly pop up held at Langbaan on Monday nights, diners are treated to a parade of twelve thoughtful, vegetable-forward dishes, each more exquisite than the next.

While you should absolutely take the opportunity to experience one of Vince's multi-course feasts in its entirety, this will be a rare and lovely opportunity to sample some of his vibrant dishes à la carte, in casual and convivial environment.

Prior to creating vegetable magic at Jolie Laide, Chef Vince cut his classic and modernist teeth at Coi in San Francisco, Noma in Copenhagen and Castagna here in Portland. He has won legions of fans with his lively flavors, unbridled creativity, and hyper-seasonal approach to vegetable cookery. Willamette Week dubbed Jolie Laide one of "Portland's most singular dining experiences" and Portland Monthly named his pop up a "Best Unrestaurant of 2017"...along with Tournant!

This evening will be such a fun collaboration where you can enjoy signature dishes from Chef Vince (see below for what is close to the final menu!), fresh NW oysters and other little dishes from us and cocktails from Matt of Merit Badge.

Join us!  No reservations necessary, just drop by for a la carte selections and restaurant-style seating. Hope to see you at the table, friends.

**SORRY FRIENDS, THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT**

Along my journey  
through this transitory world,  
new year's housecleaning

-Matsuo Basho

Come, sit, and begin the new year with intention, reverence and joy. On January 1, 2018, Secret Language and Tournant collaborate to bring you a very special New Year’s Day brunch, inspired by the clean flavors and simple, graceful beauty of a traditional Japanese breakfast, with small touches that ground us in the Pacific Northwest. 

Expect an array of vegetable dishes, pristine seafood, delightful details, and the sense of renewal and total-mind-body-heart happiness that only comes from a deeply nourishing breakfast enjoyed in good company.  We wish to invoke conviviality, community and harmony as we set out on this fresh start, and hope you’ll join us.

The meal will showcase beautiful ceramics by Careen Stoll and Carter + Rose, and can be enhanced further with ceremonial matcha from Mizuba, nigori sake, ginger mimosas and other lovely sips and flourishes.  See below for menu and reservations.

Tazon Pozole @ Tournant

 Photo by  Natalie Behring

Thazzz right! TAZON RETURNS! It's been a minute, but we're back with everyone's favorite pozole night just in time to warm you up for the long, cold winter.

This traditional Mexican soup is hearty and nourishing, brimming with toothsome hominy and tender stewed meat or seasonal vegetables and is served with fresh garnishes such as cabbage, chopped onion, radish and lime that you can add to taste for your perfect bowl. 

In many regions of Mexico, pozole is served only on Thursdays and is a wonderful excuse to gather friends and family around the table. We're continuing this tradition at Tournant with Tazon (which means “bowl” in Spanish) on the Third Thursdays of each month--until it gets too hot for soup! 

Steamy bowls start at $12 and you can choose from pork rojo, chicken verde or verduras (vegan), plus traditional and not so traditional add-ins. Order a cold cerveza, margarita or paloma, then close your eyes and imagine you're in sunny Mexico.

No reservations necessary—just drop by for restaurant-style seating.

Tournant Oyster Social ft. The Wilderness Hunters

Wildernesshunters_final.jpg

We're so thrilled to welcome back Eric Bartle and Sara Kundelius, aka, The Wilderness Hunters to the Tournant kitchen! They've just returned from the East Coast where they spent the summer catching trout from fresh streams, raising chickens and turkeys and hunting elk, then cooking it all up with produce fresh from their kitchen garden.

This culinary powerhouse of a couple truly does it all from foraging, fishing, hunting, cooking, curing, preserving and baking--and they make it all look effortless (and delicious). For Oyster Social, they will be creating some signature dishes that highlight their favorite wild, foraged and preserved items. There is talk of chanterelle mushroom and smoked oyster chowder, a bison pastrami reuben and albacore tartare...yum.

For our part, we will be showcasing fresh NW oysters, whole live Dungeness crab and some other surprises. Matt from Merit Badge will be shaking and stirring up cocktails with style and we'll be donating 10% of all drink sales to #PDX4PR for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico.

Join us!  No reservations necessary, just drop by for a la carte selections and restaurant-style seating. Hope to see you at the table, friends.
