- One Pot is a phenomenon that is the brainchild of Michael Hebberoy who has been called a "food provocateur" by Food and Wine Magazine. After giving up on his widely acclaimed Portland restaurant, Clarklewis, Michael started throwing clandestine themed dinners all over the city in art galleries with guest speakers and motel parking lots accompanied by installation art and even in private homes and coffee shops. Each event is unique and the idea has multiplied all over the world as he considers it an open source concept. Anyone can hold a One Pot dinner anywhere but to attend one of Michael's is to experience the real deal and you can bet the guest chefs are fantastic. The ingredients are always seasonal, local and innovatively combined. You'll need to make a reservation on the website, www.onepot.org and find out if an event is scheduled. If not, create your own dinner with ingredients from the farmer's market or Pike Place and post the pictures on his blog.
