Food. Road trips. Ever since Marco Polo wandered out to China and came back with spaghetti (that’s what happened, right?), discovering new food has been a great motivator for hitting the road.
So Portland Monthly is excited to team up with Travel Oregon and Alaska Airlines to serve up a hearty, highly mobile dose of Oregon bounty for one lucky reader. The gourmet odyssey starts with airfare, lodging, and two VIP passes to Feast Portland, the outrageous three-day culinary festival that brings America’s foodie elite to Portland. Then a five-night road trip, with ground transportation (and food! And drink!) provided, unlocks the culinary riches of Central and Eastern Oregon.

- Wild and Edible: Foraging for some of Oregon’s wildest flavors.
- Oregon Cheese Trail: The state’s burgeoning culture of artisan cheesemakers harnesses our historic dairy industry.
