Food for Thought @ Forage Market Cooks

July 21, 2014 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Forage Market Cooks

Food for ThoughtJoin us for another of our no-host happy hours. This time at Forage Market Cooks.

Haven’t been to one yet? These are informal gatherings around town that embody the Slow Food principles of good, clean and fair. Get a chance to hear from the proprietor about their vision, methods or inspiration. Meet new friends and old.

Forage Market Cooks is a new enterprise recently sprouted inside the Kruger’s Farm Market stand on SE Hawthorne Blvd., creating a trio of fine businesses alongside Flying Fish Co.

This new project of two cooks—Manda Beckett, a forty-year Portlander, and Diane Corson, who recently joined us from Montana. They met as volunteer cooks and are now “forage-cooking” from Kruger’s Farm Market and Flying Fish. They make savory food, on the spot, from “unassuming” or “misunderstood” vegetables and seafood, for shoppers to enjoy while they are foraging for themselves. The style is fresh and fun, with an emphasis on Mediterranean flavors—fresh herbs, garlic, olive oil and vegetables, sometimes mixed with interesting grains, as well as luscious fish soups foraged locally from Oregon and Washington waters.


2310 SW Hawthorne Blvd.

No RSVP required on this short notice. Please join us!

Thanks for sharing
