OUR CHEF : Brandon started his career in Minneapolis while attending culinary school. He quickly found his niche while working at the James Beard nominated Tilia under chef Steven Brown. While at Tilia, Brandon discovered how to create a menu that showcases his love for the outdoors and his passion for fresh, local ingredients.
Wild North is a family owned and operated small business based in Portland, Oregon. Chef Brandon and his wife Amelia started their journey together in Minneapolis, Minnesota while working in restaurants and retail shops around the city. Never being quite satisfied working in someone else's kitchen, in 2017 the pair moved across the country along with their two dogs in a camper trailer built from the ground up by Brandon, which they lovingly refer to as their 'practice tiny house.' Since arriving in Portland, they have spent the year investing in their dream of serving fresh, seasonal, whole ingredient recipes that showcased local flavors. With a successful pop-up restaurant and their experiences in the kitchen and business under their belts, they are looking forward to serving some of your new local favorites!
The inspiration for our menu comes from Brandon's love for the outdoors and rustic cooking methods. He spends his free time camping, hiking, and foraging for new ingredients to showcase in his dishes. Brandon also loves to garden, and makes every effort to grow all of our seasonal produce in his own garden. He challenges himself to minimize waste in his cooking by utilizing every available piece of each ingredient and transforming it into something new and exciting with each bite.
