A protégé of JBF Award winner Dan Barber, Chris DiMinno has made a name for himself on the hot Portland food scene with Clyde Common, his ultracool European-style gastropub. At tomorrow night's Beard House dinner, DiMinno will pair his must-have Pacific Northwest ingredients with exquisite hand-crafted wines from Big Table Farm in Gaston, Oregon.
