The Umpqua Bank Chef OffPresented by Parr Lumber and Safeway Foundation
Three Dinner Chefs
Three Dessert Chefs
The Umpqua Bank Chef Off presented by Parr Lumber and the Safeway Foundation is our coveted farm-to-table fundraiser, celebrating the best of Oregon food, wine and beer to benefit the Foundation’s scholarship program. We bring together notable Portland chefs for a culinary competition on a beautiful 7-acre Sauvie Island.
In 2019 Renata returned to defend its title of reigning champ with veteran competitor, Plaza del Toro, and this year’s rookie: Urdaneta. Guests enjoyed a mouthwatering ‘dessert-off’ between Pip’s Original Doughnuts, Fifty Licks and Wailua Shave Ice. Guests refreshed their palates with Oregon’s finest wine and beer, featuring Domaine Drouhin, Adelsheim, and Bergstrom Wines, and on the microbrew front: Full Sail Brewing, Ninkasi Brewing, and Breakside Brewing.
At the end of the evening, guests casted their vote for People’s Choice Best Dish (or Dessert), and People’s Choice Best Beer and Wine, each competing for grand prize winnings to benefit an Oregon children’s charity of his or her choice!
Congratulations to our 2019 champions: Plaza del Toro and Fifty Licks!
