Feast’s summer product series, Fab Collab, is here! We’ve partnered with Feast Portland and participating artisans and chefs to create limited edition, one-of-a-kind Feast Portland-inspired items. The collaboration items will be released throughout the summer. A portion of gross sales from all Feast Fab Collab items will be donated to Feast Portland’s charitable partners, Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon and Urban Gleaners.
Fab Collab 2018 is filled with some awesome local vendors: Olympia Provisions, 10 Barrel Brewing Co., Ruby Jewel, Oregon Fruit Products, Bob’s Red Mill, Chef Maya Lovelace of Yonder (Portland), Chef Elias Cairo of Olympia Provisions (Portland), and Chef Joshua McFadden of Ava Gene’s (Portland).
These partnerships turned out three delicious items that you can find only at New Seasons this summer:
This is the most thirst quenching beer you could ever hope for. Feast Mode is a premium lager featuring pilsner malt, flaked rice and a subtle hopping for an ultra light and refreshing beer. Perfect for pounding on the porch or while grubbin’ out with friends.
Maya’s Southern Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwich: Featuring cornmeal from Bob’s Red Mill and strawberries from Oregon Fruit Products, these chewy cornmeal cookie and strawberry buttermilk ice cream sandwich represents the best of the Appalachian pantry – the preserved corn that serves as the backbone of every meal, the buttermilk giving richness and tang, and strawberry jam pulling us right back into the warm and sunny days of late spring.
Grandma Mae’s Sweet Molasses Ice Cream Sandwich: These ice cream sandwiches are inspired by the molasses and apple butter sandwich cookies found in Chef Maya’s grandma’s secret cookie stash – the cookies were soft and chewy, and her apple butter seeped into them to create a surprisingly luxurious texture and a combination of farmhouse flavors she only ever tasted in her Grandma’s home.
Ava Gene’s Owner-Chef Joshua McFadden was motivated by his love of Roman-inspired food when creating this specialty Italian sausage stuffed with kale and provolone cheese, poached to perfection. Grill and pair with fresh pasta, olive oil and cherry tomatoes to elevate your pasta game.
