3 Reasons to Travel with Aaron Barnett

Chef Aaron Barnett is Portland’s French cuisine visionary. His two restaurants—St Jack and La Moule—channel his foodie parents and his own French Canadian roots. Aaron is a master of nouvelle cuisine with the accolades to back it up: he's competed on Chopped, been a StarChef Rising Star and won Eater’s restaurant of the year. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better companion to experience the French-inspired flavors, and the ridiculously delicious street foods, of Vietnam.

Down to Try Everything

Vietnam's cuisine is rich, bold and flavorful⁠—and sometimes not for the faint of heart. Aaron competed on Chopped with a basket of bizarre foods and even enjoys taking down pickled herring straight from the jar.

French with a Twist

As a kid, Aaron would come home to ducks hanging from the ceiling and dinners of snails and frog’s legs. He's worked in many kitchens, including San Francisco's famed Gary Danko, always breathing new life into French staples.

All the Senses

Aaron curates the soundtracks at his restaurants with as much passion as the menus themselves. It's the same attention and care that make him a superb travel companion.
