Homemade Society | A Nomadic Restaurant
Portland has more chef-owned restaurants than any city in the United States. However, many chefs struggle to find a flexible platform to test out new menus and concepts before they invest in a permanent space.
We launched Homemade Society to support up-and-coming chefs in Portland by getting them in front of a hungry audience of critics. Part experiment, part wandering supper club, we pair up-and-coming local chefs with off-beat homes to create meals for a good cause. In the spirit of sharing, people in the society are meant to pass on their membership to future diners and all proceeds are donated to a charity of the Airbnb host's choice.
Supper at the Croft
This dinner took place at the home of two eco-conscious farmers who live in the breathtaking surroundings of Portland's wildlife refuge known as Sauvie Island. Their modern farmhouse and rescue sanctuary sits on 5 acres of land overlooking the majestic Mount St. Helens. All proceeds went to The Croft, their non-profit situated on the property.
An Evening of Many Courses
Completely built by hand, the tiny home reflects an easy Oregon style with a hint of industrial charm. To benefit living small, all proceeds for the event will go to Micro Community Concepts, a grassroots organization that strives to provide safe, sustainable and affordable homes for underserved Portlanders.
