Happy New Year! We hope the coming months are full of delicious, sustainable Oregon food. Along this vein, NPR's Weekend Edition recently ran a story about the growing popularity of farm-fresh, artisanal food and drink. Read it, and resolve to make food a more considered part of your life in 2012.
And if you're on the lookout for a recipe to properly celebrate the new year, check out Willamette Week's Bowl O' Luck, which Ken Rubin crafted as a Northwest-centric dish (akin to Hoppin' John or Pork and Sauerkraut) to help ring in a prosperous 2012. We're certain that the meal's lucky mojo will work even if you make it post-Jan 1 (Indeed, for those of us whose stomachs only just recovered from our holiday excesses, that's a very important point).
May you have an appetizing and abundant 2012.
