Hello all! I’m am writing this from my hotel room in Hanoi, Vietnam. Very exciting! More on that later (and by later I mean in a couple weeks when I return).
Right now, I want to tell you about an awesome opportunity. A few weeks ago I had an amazing meal at Castagna, cooked by Chef Justin Woodward. It was truly innovative, the flavors were just incredible, and every bite delighted the tastebuds. Anyway, Justin is nominated for Food & Wine’s The People’s Best New Chef Northwest. This is a HUGE deal! He’s up against some other northwest greats (the folks from Ox, Bar Sajor, and Aviary, to name a few), but as soon as I read all the names, I voted for Justin. And this was even before I got the chance to do this great giveaway.
As a way to promote Castagna and to allow more Portlander’s the opportunity to dine there, I’m doing a little giveaway of a dessert tasting for two at Castagna. To enter, you must 1) like Serious Crust on Facebook, and 2) comment on this post with either a reason you want to go to Castagna OR a reason you truly love dessert. The winner will be randomly selected, and I’ll reply to your comment if you’ve won in order to get your information! Pages must be liked and comments must be made by the end of the day on Monday, March 31st, which also happens to be when the voting for Best New Chef closes! So get clicking and typing and voting!
