This was our first time at Burning Beast and in this, we seemed alone. Everyone we met had come for years and it’s easy to see why. 15 of the NW’s best chefs cook over open flames for 500 people, with proceeds benefitting Smoke Farm, a project of the Rubicon Foundation. Burning Beast has been an annual event since 2008 and this year tickets sold out in 3 hours. It’s organized by Tamara Murphy of Terra Plata.

Lamb by Skelly and the Bean
Salmon by Staple and Fancy

Bison (I think)
Meaty Cocktails by Bathtub Gin
Toffee Bacon Sea Salt Cupcakes by Trophy
Then, of course, the beast is burned…
And with that, all beasts were consumed or became ashes.
