In the game of Blind-Tasting Bingo, a chef presents players with 15 distinct bites that players taste with their eyes covered, seeking to identify the items on a non-traditional bingo board that includes both correct and false options. A few lucky winners take home a bottle of local booze!
Stacey Givens is the magical combination of urban farmer and talented chef. Based in Northeast Portland’s Cully Neighborhood, she and a squad of dedicated volunteers grow diverse vegetables on several urban lots. She sells her harvests to nearby restaurants, including Cocotte, Grain & Gristle, Lincoln Restaurant and Ned Ludd, in what she calls “chef-to-chef” produce service. She also uses her fresh produce in her own meals as chef at Raptor Ridge Winery and during brunches and suppers at the farm. Her inspiration to get her hands in the dirt sprouted when she was cooking at Rocket (now Noble Rot), which had the first rooftop garden of its kind in Portland. Stacey will host our only VEGETARIAN bingo game.
