A Community Meal
Association is a chef and dinner speaker event centered around the idea of bringing people together over an incredible meal and a thought-provoking talk.

Association dinner returns on Sunday, April 23rd for Design Week Portland, with Peter Cho of Han Oak as our guest chef, and Mimi Lettunich of Twenty Four 7 as our keynote speaker.
LaMama/TUSK - Sam Smith (Ava Gene's), Nora Antene (Le Pigeon), and Wesley Johnson (Castagna).
