EN PLEIN AIR: A Garden Party and Dinner by Field & Vine 

Chef Pascal Chureau, originally from Bordeaux, is the owner of the Allium Restaurant in West Linn and of Field & Vine Events, which was created to bring his cuisine to the farms and vineyards of the northwest. Field & Vine dinners are family-style meals shared at long tables, recalling meals in France held to celebrate the harvest and other occasions. When the season allows,  these meals are held outdoors. And we are in just such a season.

Many of you may remember Pascal's previous culinary ventures, Fenouil in the Pearl and Montmartre downtown.

Pascal's love of the northwest outdoors marries with his roots in France to create meals with a French sensibility and the northwest's fresh flavors. Start with the apéro and hors d'oeuvres, then savor a summer themed meal, served with appropriate wine pairings. 

Mingle with fellow francophiles and savor the pleasures of a fine dinner served en plein air on a summer's evening.
