Sweet Deal

Wake up for a cheesy, ice cream-filled brunch

Wake up and smell the bacon (brownies crowned with fudgy chocolate ice cream).

Belly up to the Real Food Brunch on Sunday, June 14, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., in Portland's Elder Hall at Ned Ludd (buy tickets).

Come hungry to a four-course family style brunch ($30 a person) prepared by chef Jason French and featuring dairy done right from the local farmers of Oregon's own Tillamook County Creamery Association.

Now about that bacon brownie. Here's a peek at what you'll be feasting on (see the full menu here):

 Cut yourself a slice of summer vegetable or chorizo strata covered in a satisfying layer of Tillamook Special Reserve Extra Sharp Cheddar.

 Save room for the ultimate savory-sweet combo of bacon and white chocolate brownie topped with ultra-chocolaty Tillamook Mudslide Ice Cream.

 Sip on custom cocktails like the Ludd Blood House-Made Bloody Mary garnished with Tillamook Hot Habanero Jack Cheese Cubes, alongside wine and beer.

Get your tickets now. It's bacon brownie or bust.
