Cynthia and Dennis Wiancko share their lush Corbett, Oregon forest hideaway with their daughter Sasha Swerdloff and son-in-law Anders Meyer. This garden includes a quaint blueberry orchard and a breathtaking view of Mt. Hood on a clear day! We pair the beautiful garden near the Gorge with Fatou Outtara, chef and owner of Akadi. Fatou who moved from the Ivory Coast to attend Portland State University at age 23, learned to cook Ivorian traditional food at age 7. Akadi serves dishes from countries throughout West Africa, with a focus on the Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso. Fatou was featured in PDX Monthly’s Best New Restaurants 2018 and brings her passion for not only creating recipes, but executing recipes that were passed down to her from her elders to her cooking.
Thank you to our generous dinner sponsor, Garden Fever!
