IPNC: The Food
Of course, everyone goes to IPNC for the Pinot Noir, but they come away talking about the food. The weekend
ticket includes a luxurious buffet Breakfast on the Patio Friday and Saturday, a Winery Lunch one day and an
alfresco Lunch on the Lawn in the oak grove on campus another day, The Grand Dinner Friday night, the
Salmon Bake Saturday night, and the Sparkling Brunch Finale Sunday morning.
More than 60 guest chefs team with Northwest farmers to utilize locally sourced sustainable ingredients to
create the meals served throughout the weekend. They are assisted by staff from their restaurants, along with
50 other professional and amateur chefs who volunteer their time for IPNC. The chefs mostly hail from the
Northwest, but over the years, chefs have traveled from all over the United States and parts of the world to
cook for IPNC participants. I have included three menus here to give you an idea of what to expect if you
attend the IPNC.
