About the Guidebook

The fair city of Portland has a slew of affectionate nicknames—City of Roses, Stumptown, Rip City, Puddletown and Little Beirut to name a few, but I’ve dubbed it the City That Never Stops Eating.

The second edition of Portland’s 100 Best Places to Stuff Your Faces is a meticulously-researched guide to Portland’s very finest locally-owned culinary locales. Featuring the irrepressible spirit and creativity of Portland’s intrepid chefs, bakers, chocolatiers, cheesemongers, grocers, farmers, restaurateurs and cartrepreneurs, the destinations in this book are my own personal favorites. Now, off you go on your gastro-walkabout—may you take only dignified bites and leave only crumbs.

About the Author

Jen lives in Portland with her imaginary mini bulldog and a lot of leftovers. Her hobbies include browsing grocery stores and farmers markets, experimenting with recipes involving melted chocolate and lots of it, reading The Onion, taking pictures of pocket ninjas, trying new cavas, and thinking about lunch.

She has been a cook, food stylist, dessert caterer, and teacher, but these days, she writes about all the best things to eat and drink in Portland and beyond, for various media outlets and on her website, Under the Table With Jen. She also runs wordcake.com.

About the Cohorts

Darin Richardson is a partner at Refresh Media, a small web studio based in San Luis Obispo, CA. Darin polishes his multiple Apple products daily with a special chamois.

Mette Hornung Rankin is a graphic designer by day and sleeping by night. A half-Dane with a penchant for pickled herring, she helms the Bureau of Betterment, a boutique design studio.

Shellie Anderson is a one-woman organizational machine who proofreads with a fervor akin to a honey badger tracking a Schwan’s truck. She is the sole proprietor of Type A Productions.
