About the Neighborhood The Hawthorne District lies across the Willamette River from downtown and is home to funky shops, restaurants, coffee houses, and pubs. Of Portland's neighborhoods, Hawthorne is "the bohemian." It reflects an urban niche where alternative is considered mainstream, and tie-dyes aren't a thing of the past. Here a hint of patchouli drifts from stores; a flower vendor brightens the sidewalk scenery; "art car" sightings are commonplace (cars decorated hood to trunk with treasures ranging from high-heeled shoes to bowling trophies); and trendsetters shop in hip used-clothing boutiques. On any given evening, live music spills from the open doors of pubs, bibliophiles linger at Powell's, and sidewalk tables host many a brew enthusiast. Brews, that is, as in beer and coffee.

Here are just some of the books we're talking about at Powell's.

  1. Proof

    In Proof, Rogers distills the science and history of booze into a fascinating, thoroughly enjoyable book exploring alcohol's most basic elements (yeast, sugar, smell and taste) along with its neurological effects and even the dreaded hangover. You'll gain a new appreciation for one of humankind's most alluring creations.

  2. The Dirty Apron Cookbook

    Chef Dave Robertson was born to teach cooking. Dirty Apron, the eponymous cookbook from his Vancouver, BC, deli and cooking school, celebrates recipes both funky and grand. Robertson's thoughtful presentation makes cooking easy for beginners yet also intriguing for the experienced cook. This is the rare cookbook that everyone will love.

  3. The American Plate

    I love when a title accurately pinpoints what a book is about. The American Plate: A Culinary History in 100 Bites is one such title. Written by the lead historian at the History Channel, author Libby H. O'Connell has given us a very readable excursion through time focusing on the American foodway, with some foods rather time-stamped (hardly anyone eats turtle anymore, but we still love the early pioneer food of pumpkin pudding mixed with cream).

    Appropriately, the foodway starts with Native American foods and then wends it way through oysters, chop suey, SPAM, and more, to the epilogue touching on foods of this very minute: fad diets, GMOs, and, kind of oddly, chili con carne.

    The American Plate is a quick read, and one that could give you some conversational ammunition at any awkward family holiday gathering that may come your way.

  4. The Forest Feast

    A cookbook as THE best book of the year? Yes indeed — when that book is as superb as The Forest Feast. This is a book that I want to live in: enticing, welcoming, and lush. Every page is a beauty, each filled with the author's own illustrations and photography — photos shot at her house nestled in the California woods. And the recipes are delightful. They somehow feel exotic, yet they're deceptively simple and made from nothing fancy — just good-old American veggies.

  5. The Portlandia Cookbook

    I'd assumed that buying The Portlandia Cookbook for its recipes would be like reading Playboy for the articles, but Brownstein and Armisen's latest book is the real thing: a collection of delicious, inventive recipes inspired by local restaurants and seasoned with a perfect blend of the gentle satire and city love that's made Portlandia a hit.

  6. Heritage

    Chef Brock is a storyteller. His tales take the form of recipes deeply steeped in the American South. The Southern cuisine in Heritage is honest and proud, based in history and a back-to-the-roots approach. Whether diner fare, Sunday supper, or neighborhood seafood boil, these thoughtfully conceived recipes have a glorious stick-to-your-ribs goodness.

  7. Death and Co

    NYC's premier craft cocktail bar, Death and Co, has a passion for building a fine drink — think complex flavors skillfully put together, elegance in a glass. The cocktail recipes in this book are sophisticated and creative. Death and Co includes extensive bartending techniques, so even an adventurous beginner can aim to be a master mixologist.

  8. Huckleberry

    Charmingly bound with polka-dotted edges, Huckleberry's sweet and savory recipes strike a welcome balance between comfort food and fine baking. Reminding us that "baking is supposed to be fun," Zoe Nathan, owner of Santa Monica-based Huckleberry Bakery and Café, encourages us to not be afraid of making mistakes in the kitchen.

  9. Plenty More

    In a follow-up to the wildly popular Plenty, Yotam Ottolenghi once again proves that vegetables can be much more than an unappetizing side dish hastily steamed in the microwave. These beautifully photographed, flavorful recipes are an inspiration to those wishing to eat healthier in the age of the "vegi-renaissance."

  10. The Messy Baker

    With chapter titles such as "Crumbly," "Drippy," and "Flaky," how can you not get "hungry" looking at the recipes in this fantastic baking book? Charmian Christie brings the best recipes from her popular blog to your home kitchen in a very approachable, relaxed (and delicious) way.

  11. Tangle Stitches for Quilters and Fabric Artists

    This is a great book for the quilter looking to bring something new to their craft. Zentangle is a style of doodling taken to an art form, and its practitioners are passionate about their repetitive pattern drawing. Tangle Stitches combines this art with quilting, a perfect fit as the doodles are very similar to common quilting stitches. The projects are mostly small and easy to manage.

  12. Farming with Native Beneficial Insects

    Looking to increase your organic harvest? This is one of the most exciting farming books I've seen! It's not just bugs (although there are plenty); it's also cover crops, grassed waterways, and brush piles. Farming with Native Beneficial Insects has a wealth of information on introducing and restoring biodiversity for the backyard farmer as well as for the farmer with actual acreage. It's from Storey, so you can count on lots of color pictures.
