Chef in My Garden (feat. Katy Millard of Coquine)
July 14, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Bob Hyland and Andrew Beckman’s sunny hillside garden is perched on the edge of Forest Park in NW Portland and includes panoramic views of Mt. St. Helens and other Cascade peaks. Naturalistic beds and borders feature climate-adapted plants that thrive in Portland’s dry summers, accompanied by summer-blooming perennials. Planted containers cover the front deck, spill out of the greenhouse and punctuate the gardens. Bob is owner of Hyland Garden Design and Andrew is the former head gardener for Martha Stewart. Their impressive garden will host Katy Millard, chef and co-owner of Coquine, an ambitious, full service restaurant and neighborhood café in Portland, Oregon serving a sophisticated, unfussy menu in a distinctive yet welcoming space. Katy moved to Oregon in 2010 where she worked in respected kitchens including Bollywood Theater, Sauvage, and The Woodsman Tavern. A 2017 James Beard Award Best Chef Northwest finalist, Katy’s foundation in French technique brings focus and intention to her cooking; striving for consistency, perfection and purpose in every dish. Her playful, casual style shines through to create unpretentiously elegant food you can – and want to – eat every day.
