A Villa Evening
Participants in A Villa Evening will enjoy an intimate and elegant experience featuring Oregon truffles paired with gorgeous Pfeiffer wines, as our guest chef presents authentic, seasonal offerings in the comfort of the Villa's gracious demonstration kitchen and dining area. Hosts Robin and Danuta Pfeiffer promise an unforgettable experience, and the passion and attention they devote to every vintage is one reason Pfeiffer Vineyards is recognized as one of the prime pinot noir sites in Oregon.
This limited attendance event is only available to those who choose Weekend Experience Two, The Gourmand on a first-come, first-served basis, and sells out quickly every year.
A Villa Evening Chef
Sarah Schafer, Chef
Irving Street Kitchen, Portland Oregon
Chef Sarah Schafer has led Irving Street Kitchen as executive chef since it's opening in 2010, in Portland, Oregon.
Raised in Boston, Sarah's love of food and cooking can be traced back to a childhood immersed in it by her mother and great grandmother, both ardent fans of Julia Child.
Schafer earned her stripes working with chef Ken Orringer in Boston, and in some of the most prestigious, michelin star kitchens in NYC. Her talents did not go unnoticed while at Gramercy Tavern under chef Tom Colicchio, where she was quickly promoted to sous chef, the first female sous chef in a Danny Meyer restaurant. From there she opened Eleven Madison Park as executive sous chef where she remained happily until deciding to go back to the west coast where she had done her externship upon graduating from the CIA. She worked in San Francisco as chef de cuisine at Frisson, becoming executive chef upon chef Daniel Patterson’s departure. Sarah opened the new San Francisco restaurant, Anchor and Hope, and after two years there was offered the opportunity to move to Portland for the company to open Irving Street Kitchen.
