Juanjo Canals

Con Amor, Madrid, Spain

Any description of Portland’s dining scene would be incomplete without mention of John Gorham’s restaurants, where inventive spins on classic dishes have given the chef a near-cult following. For this special dinner, Gorham is showcasing his side job as founder of La Ruta PDX, a cultural festival that brings chefs and winemakers from Spain to the Pacific Northwest, such as Madrid superstar Juanjo Canals, who joins him at the Beard House for a collaborative Iberian feast.
