The Bite is always one of my favorite events of the year in Portland, combining two of my favorite things- socializing and eating! This year, however, I wasn't looking forward to it quite as much as usual. The reason? I'm doing the Whole 30 during the month of August! It is going well, but has been really limiting my food choices.
Despite the fact that I personally couldn't eat anything, I still had a fantastic time! The weather was nice but not too hot, which made it fun to be outside, wandering around the festival, all day. The food looked and smelled delicious, and my personal taste-tester (David) loved everything that he had!
My favorite part of the day was the Iron-Chef themed cooking competition. We had great seats for the show, and got to watch chefs battle it out on stage to see who was the ultimate champion. I loved reality cooking shows, so this was definitely right up my alley.
Now that the Bite is over, I'm really looking forward to the Taste of Oregon, coming this September. Stay tuned!
