Oregon

Entertainer Taylor Hicks tastes his way across Oregon on a mission to assemble a plate of the state’s most iconic foods. First, Taylor visits a pear orchard in the fertile Willamette Valley to sample the official state fruit. Then, he heads to the coast to learn how to catch Dungeness crabs. Further inland, Taylor hunts for elusive truffles and roasts raw hazelnuts. Finally, he visits the birthplace of the marionberry, a hybrid blackberry that is the main ingredient of the state’s famous pies. It’s a plateful of the best of Oregon, filled with the stories behind the state’s classic foods.
