It's no secret that Oregon as a whole is well known all over the world for producing the best of many things that are enjoyed and consumed in one form or another. More importantly here in the Willamette Valley, we are quick to state and are proud to acknowledge that we are becoming noticed as the best place in Oregon to find the best restaurants and "foodie" experiences. Places like Vault 244 putting the swank in small town Oregon, Calapooia Brewing Company putting us on the big map by making some of the most awesome beer in Oregon and of course our very own Sybaris Bistro owned by James Beard Foundation award winning chef Matt Bennett and his wife Janel. Using local, buying from our nearby farmers and helping support our communities, our restaurateurs and chefs have found the bounties here at home and they know how to use them.
Speaking of community support, the Bennett's have and continue to host a handful of fund raisers in Albany, Linn County and Portland. They have single handedly provided the "it" spot for foodies wanting that "special" Oregon food experience and by combining their efforts, expertise and talent, Chef Matt and his wife Janel at Sybaris Bistro in downtown Albany, have taken locavore and giving to a whole new level. Shopping close to home for the best of the best before the chefs in Portland even get a whiff of what's growing, Matt has already planned and prepped his way in to many hearts and bellies with his mouthwatering dishes. So, to say that the Bennetts and Sybaris are involved in another awesome fund raising "food event" is not surprising at all.
Sea to Table is presented by the Ten Rivers Food Web and you find out exactly what that is all about below! Please join us as we celebrate the amazing BOUNTY found right here in the heart of the valley and beyond and all grown and made with love right here from Albany, Oregon!
