As the official start of tourist season approaches, we wanted to take a moment to introduce the foodie duo responsible for bringing regional culinary tours to the Portland area. My name is Angie, and I work alongside my husband Allen to fill peoples bellies while showing off some of the natural treasures that make this area so wonderful. Together we act as your humble guide/driver team, cruising through the Columbia Gorge, alongside the Pacific Ocean, and around the streets of Portland, all while sampling some tasty northwestern grub.
Our love for food was fully realized during a stint abroad, where we found that the sole purpose of our daily explorations revolved around tasting anything and everything we could get our hands on. From hand-made Chinese noodles, to Ecuadorian guinea pig roasted over an open flame, we ate our way around the globe returning to our homeland eager to share our love for food and travel. As luck would have it, one of our favorite places in the world had become a foodie destination in its own right.
In recent years Portland has enjoyed a wealth of national admiration for a budding culinary scene, as well as a steady stream of praise from food and travel personalities who frequently feature the city’s eateries on their shows. Amidst all this recognition, other areas in the region have quietly upped the ante, taking full advantage of the local bounty and creating menus so fresh they change daily.
Celebrating these restaurants and their chefs became our mission, and thus began the Eat Adventures Coastal and Mt. Hood regional food tours. Additionally, we recently added the Portland Food Carts & Neighborhoods tour as a half-day option for guests with busy schedules and a curiosity for the food truck phenomenon that’s unique to our city. So come spend a day with us, exploring the natural and culinary beauty of the Pacific Northwest, one bite at a time.
