The National Honey Board (NHB) recently celebrated National Honey Month at the fifth annual Feast Portland, presented by Bon Appétit. This event, which began in 2012, takes place throughout the Portland, Oregon area and features many events that thrill the most adventurous foodie.

Over the course of three days visitors got to sample food and drinks, all while supporting a good cause. Proceeds from Feast Portland help support charities working to end childhood hunger in Portland and throughout the country and in 2016 the selected charity was Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon.

The NHB was excited to be on-hand with our good friend and spokesperson Chef David Guas during the event's Grand Tasting to share honey's versatility with three unique and delicious honey-inspired eats and sips, including:

The honey booth also featured fun giveaways for visitors including our bright orange spatulas and original honey flip cookbook. Also available for guests were honey sticks in three varietals – orange blossom, blackberry and buckwheat.

In addition to the Grand Tasting, the NHB and Chef Guas were also present at the Brunch Village, which took place on the last day of the event, and included the following dishes:

Overall this was a great event for the NHB and honey. As an ingredient with a multitude of uses there can be no better audience for our message than the foodies of the world who gathered at Feast Portland.

We would like to thank our catering partners at Food In Bloom Catering for helping make this event such a sweet success.
