DAYTON, Oregon – Tournant has just launched a new season of their signature Full Moon Dinners in partnership with Oregon’s own Westward Whiskey. Guided by the lunar calendar and held in stunning locations throughout the Pacific Northwest, these luminous evenings celebrate nature, community, and seasonal pleasures as the full moon rises.
The chefs of Tournant, Mona Johnson and Jaret Foster, are known for their emphasis on live fire cooking and creating events that celebrate time, place and purpose. Each full moon has an ancient name that corresponds with the season and with each dinner, Tournant strives to honor this through food and ceremony.
“Our full moon dinner series is the highest expression of what we strive to create through our immersive dining experiences,” shares Chef Mona Johnson, “Ephemeral, yet powerful, a peak-of-season meal cooked outdoors over the flames and enjoyed in a beautiful setting under the light of the full moon creates genuine reverence and connections between guests, the food on their plates, the hands that grew and prepared it, and the natural world.”
