Welcome to Cannon Beach — a small town with big culture and loads to do. Winemaker dinners, craft beer tastings, visiting authors, art walks, sand castle tournaments, makers studios and more await the curious traveler.
For this second Guest Chef Dinner, who better to lead us on the journey than Chef Bedard and Guest Chef Sam Smith of Tusk. Chef Smith’s vegetable-driven, Middle Eastern-inspired menus have earned Tusk recognition as Food & Wine Restaurant of the Year 2017 and to Bon Appétit’s 50 Best New Restaurants 2017. Smith’s time spent as opening sous chef at Philadelphia’s acclaimed Israeli restaurant Zahav, followed by his years as Chef de Cuisine at Ava Gene’s, inform his ever-changing seasonal menus where bright flavors and earthy textures are front and center.
