Portland Food Photographer- Black Walnut Inn

Black Walnut Inn and Vineyard is a gorgeous bed and breakfast located at the top of the Dundee hills with stunning views of vineyards and Mt. Hood. It boasts a beautiful breakfast and dinner menu which I had the pleasure of photographing this past week.

I also enjoyed a chef collaboration dinner on Saturday that featured beautiful wines from Brittan Vineyards. Head Chef Chase Williams teamed up with Sarah Schneider of the Nightwood Society to provide guests with an amazing five-course meal. (My favorite dish was the Beef Carpaccio with olive crumble, crispy six-minute egg, radish, arugula, mushroom shoyu and esplette. And although all the wines were delicious- I would have to say I enjoyed the Chardonnays the best!) The wine, food and company were just perfect and both my husband and I enjoyed our time at Black Walnut Inn. Many of the patrons around the table were staying at the bed and breakfast and they boasted about the rooms and the views and how much they were enjoying there stay. One woman said she tries to come at least a few times a year- she said it’s her oasis.

If you are interested in either staying at this Italian “oasis” or perhaps you are interested in one of the upcoming dinners, please visit their website. Under “experiences” you’ll find the events listed – and they sound just as amazing as my experience.

Back to the photos- the breakfast menu will change as Chef Chase and Sous Chef Zach Elrich provide guests with seasonal options made from scratch. The photos should be a visual tease of what you might see from these two brilliant chefs during your stay. Ditto for the dinner entrees. Enjoy!

…And just one more image here that I photographed for me. It is a little too moody for the look and feel we were going for- but I couldn’t resist the window light and the savory comforting breakfast dish before me to not take one little darker photo. 😉
