Publisher Comments:

In this economy it's all about local, and Portland has developed a beautifully creative and bountiful food and drink ecosystem. This book is the indispensable access guide to it all. Portland, the little foodie town that could, is quickly becoming the national capital for all things edible and artisan. For cooks, tourists, people who love to eat, localtarians, wine lovers, cheese freaks, Parisian ex-pats in search of a decent baguette, cocktail hounds on a 100-mile diet — this is the guide to the goods.

Portland is all about the producers and purveyors — the folks who create, produce, bake, distill, gather, and sell the things that make good eating and drinking possible. Essays range from pickling to following a forager. Whether you've lived in Portland your entire life, are visiting for business or pleasure, or are a hungry transplant — this book helps you find all that is delicious in Portland.

I love this book -- Liz keeps her focus on the people behind the food, the ingredients and the craft. Lot's of great information, and an excellent read.

And, in response to the previous comments by the "insulted Portlander". What book were you reading? I did not know that "The New Old Lompac" was nouveau houte cuisine -- what a laugh. This book is an excellent read for locals -- a tribute to local cuisine and ingredients. Yes, Liz left out countless locations -- I'm ready for the second edition!

Insulted Portlander, August 5, 2010 (view all comments by Insulted Portlander)
It is always interesting to read a guide to local eating for any city when it is written for tourists: will the author write about local eateries enjoyed by locals or focus on the tourist district with emphasis on places frequented by out-of-town people?

Whether Liz Crain is originally a Portland native or a hipster transplant is unknown, however her focus is unfortunately on places for tourists to eat that aren't typically frequented by locals. Dozens of Portland culinary institutions are completely ignored in this book preferring instead to focus on nouveau houte cuisine.

If you're a native Portlander, then you will likely not be pleased with this book; however, if you're an out-of-town guest looking for the latest shtick to fill your belly without the bother of asking locals where they'd suggest you dine, then you'll be happy with the book.
