Liz Crain, Portland food writer, blogger, and eater extraordinaire claims that “the folks that make food happen” are “my tribe.” Crain reveals the tribe’s secrets in her new book, Food Lovers Guide to Portland, in bookstores on July 1.
Next time you’re caught in the headlights of edible possibilities, check out this comestible compendium. Spliced into three sections: food, drink and resources, and broken down further by food type (bakeries, cheese, food carts, meat, frozen sweets, etc.), the guide delivers the low down—history, specialties, stories—on Portland produce, potables, and provender. Crain’s book celebrates and commends the efforts of independent entrepreneurs, food artisans, and growers that contribute to a lively local food culture in Portland.
Crain has written about Portland food and drink since 2003 and says her book is intended “For people who live here and travelers who pop into Portland for a short trip.” Welcome to the tribe.
