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.
