My sister is here visiting from Germany, where she's been living and working for the past year and a half. She's a chef in Bavaria, at the fancy Steigenberger Hotel about an hour west of Munich. This is her first visit home since she moved.
We are going to spend the next couple of days exploring Portland, with emphasis on food. Of course, we will make a bookish stop at Powell's, but mostly we will be inspired and guided by this:
Portland's 100 Best Places To Stuff Your Faces by Jen Stevenson, illustrated by Mette Hornung Rankin. I bought this from the author at some women wellness whatever thing. Stevenson has a wonderful blog-like website called Under the Table With Jen, all about food, food in Portland, and life in Portland. Great stuff.
