The mystery is solved. On Friday we revealed that chef Gabe Rucker of Le Pigeon in Portland was the man in the photos doing crazy things. Today we’re pleased to announce that Gabe is the star of a new contest for Oregon Bounty, which kicks off today. He traveled the state to meet artisan product makers and gather ingredients for the perfect Oregon feast, which we caught on film. He’s also one of seven mentors in our “Win an Oregon Bounty Cuisinternship” contest, which will give seven lucky winners the chance to come to Oregon for an all-expenses-paid trip to live their culinary dream for a week. To see the movie and learn more about the contest, go to TravelOregon.com/Bounty.

About the Author: Rhiannon West Chamberlain

Rhiannon is a native Oregonian who grew up exploring the nooks and crannies of the Oregon Coast and daydreaming in Powell’s City of Books. She now lives in NE Portland with her husband and her new baby boy and looks forward to teaching him to love Oregon as much as she does. Rhiannon attended both the University of Oregon and Portland State University, where she studied Journalism and Mass Media. She claims to ‘bleed green’ and happily cheers for both the Ducks and the Vikings every chance she gets. In her free time, Rhiannon enjoys sipping Oregon Pinot, finding new restaurants, bargain hunting and trying new recipes – sometimes successfully. She has a child-like enthusiasm for trying new things and rediscovering old ones – such as skee-ball, mini golf, and big slides.
