celebrates the food and culture of what the New York Times
calls the city's "Golden Age" of dining and drinking. The city's food scene — largely a celebration of the farm-to-table movement — has grown and evolved tremendously in the last five years, with an abundance of local farms, fisheries, and small beef, lamb, and pork producers providing the city's iconic restaurants with a wide array of locally-grown deliciousness.

With over seventy recipes for the home cook from more than sixty of the city's most celebrated restaurants and showcasing stunning full-color photos from award-winning photographer Bruce Wolf, featuring mouth-watering dishes, famous chefs, and lots of local flavor, Portland, Oregon Chef's Table is the ultimate gift and keepsake cookbook for both the tourist and the Portland local.
