Chef Jason French welcomes adventure-seeking food and wine lovers to for a unique interactive wood-fired dinner and discussion at French's Ned Ludd to take place Wednesday, October 20, 2010.

This is a unique opportunity for diners to enjoy a multi-course specially prepared menu by the renowned chef French, but also to ask him questions, hear his inspirations behind the dishes and talk with him throughout the night.  As is always the case with a Portland Food Adventures dinner, the featured chef will go beyond the walls of his restaurant to recommend where HE loves to go to eat, drink and shop in Portland. Gratuity AND $50 worth of coupons to French's favorite spots will be included in the price of the dinner ($99 for dinner only, with wine pairings an additional $24.).

One of the highlights of this special evening will be having David Briggs of Xocolat de David making Ludd's signature S 'mores dessert.

Chef French will also invite his guests to join him at a later date at one of his chosen destinations to meet the proprietors of the business and get an inside look behind the scenes.  Diners will get coupons to Jason French's recommended places for this adventure, which include the wildly popular Meat Cheese Bread on Stark St. for a sandwich, Bakery Bar for a delectable treat, Heart Roasters for coffee, and coupons to two fun carts at Cartopia on Hawthorne, Perierra Creperie, and Whiffie Pies.

Portland Food Adventures launched its program in late September at Nostrana, where food writer Jill Oppenheim's review was high praise:  ” This was a great experience… someone is setting up a really nice multicourse dinner with wine pairings and you get access to the chef, and you walk away with a fistful of coupons to try all kinds of things that the chef loves in Portland. Ã‚  If last night was any indication, and it should be as it was the first event, it's a very good value for what you get and a lot of fun.”

Portland Food Adventures has the fourth in its series scheduled with Chef Anthony Cafiero at Tabla Mediterranean Bistro for a Sunday dinner on November 14th. 2010.
