Food tastes better when you eat it where it comes from. And incredible ingredients from pears, truffles and hazelnuts to sustainably caught seafood come from Oregon. So it’s no surprise that Oregon is home to world-class chefs, brewers, vintners, chocolatiers, butchers, farmers, fishermen, crabbers,salt distillers, and ice cream, cheese and charcuterie makers. And just about every other kind of thing-you-can-make makers.
There’s no better way to celebrate all this culinary goodness than traveling around the state and seeing where it grows. Come on out and create your own tasty trail through the state.
