We love running Ned Ludd, a small wood-fired restaurant in Portland, Oregon. We’re able to cook good food for good people six days a week. But when a thousand square feet of space became vacant behind our restaurant we just couldn’t resist. For so long we had dreamed of a gathering space and a community kitchen. A place where we could open our doors and grow with our community through craft, shared ideas, events, education and creative collaboration. Elder Hall is a place to gather, throw a party or host a special event. A place where you can spend time with your family, friends and favorite people, break bread and drink good wine. We hope you’ll join us for a class or a special supper or a workshop and learn something new with us!
Elder Hall is made up of a small team of commited individuals who are passionate, above all, about craft. We're a group of chefs and bartenders, artists and artisans, makers and creators who came together with a shared vision of creating a collaborative, creative community in Oregon. We wanted a space where we could gather around the table and share stories, learn a thing or two, eat good food and drink great wine with our community. So come share our space with us and let us craft a memorable event with you.
It’s warming up outside and we are fired up about all the good things the weather brings! Book Fete is back and we’re honored to welcome chef and cooking school founder Annemarie Ahearn to Elder Hall.
Annemarie founded Salt Water Farm Cooking School in Lincolnville, Maine in 2009. In just a short time, the farm drew guests from far and wide while being featured The New York Times, Bon Appetit, Food and Wine and other publications. The easy nature of Annemarie’s instruction, along with the beauty of Maine’s landscape and the bounty of local farms and fisheries, inspire so many to think of entertaining at home in a whole new way. In her new cookbook, Full Moon Suppers at Salt Water Farm, Annemarie provides a month-by-month guide to how she creates thoughtful, seasonal, beautifully prepared meals for a crowd. Her full moon suppers are a big draw and showcases how anyone can host a memorable dinner with simplicity and grace.Register Now
