Chinook Winds Casino Resort and the Newport Chamber will host a virtual Chef-led cooking demo featuring Chef Michael Durham with Chinook Winds Casino Resort.

You will be guided through the prep and cooking of a variety of distinctive dishes. You will receive the recipes beforehand to cook alongside the chef or you can save them for another time. You pick up your ingredients and be led on how to use them. If you're unable to attend live, a recording will be made available to you. This experience is one of a kind and not to be missed!

Join us online from the comfort of your chosen celebration location with your family or friends. Enjoy your wine and seafood from your basket while participating in the virtual event.

We will provide information on how to join the Zoom meeting when you purchase your To Go Festival Basket.
