Three ingredients, six courses, two top Portland chefs. Versus is PLAZA DEL TORO's competitive dinner series where two chefs have one month to bring their A-game and push boundaries developing dishes featuring three ingredients of our choice. At the end of the month, they come out swinging with three back-to-back courses, followed by dessert from PLAZA DEL TORO pasty chef Carrie Merrill. As a gastronomic society for the advancement of the culinary arts, we want PLAZA to, first and foremost, be a place for chefs to study and play, so there won't be too many rules. Guests vote at the end of dinner, one chef wins, and we donate a portion of the proceeds to the winning chef's charity of choice.
