Stephanie Celenza
This will be my first time attending Feast Portland, and I am excited about all of it! Latin cuisine is my favorite, which means I’ll be trying everything at the Night Market. And my favorite meal of the day, hands down, is brunch. It’s what I do best on the weekends, so you’ll definitely find me sampling all the deliciousness at Brunch Village. Plus, I’m a big Christina Tosi fan. I dream of the Milk Bar B’Day Truffles and Compost Cookie, so I can’t wait to see what she will be showcasing at this year’s brunch spread.
