Product Description


"Laurie Wolf's book has made me fall in love with Portland all over again. I moved to this city preciselybecause of the fantastic food scene, and seeing it captured so vividly through Laurie's writing, the pitch-perfect recipe selection, and Bruce Wolf's gorgeous photography simply confirms the premise that Portland is paradise. Now anyone can experience the charms of the city, and even enjoy the flavors in their own kitchens." —Martha Holmberg, founding editor of MIX magazine, and author of Modern Sauces "In the same vein as Under the Tuscan Sun and A Year in Provence gave the reader a sense of place viathe foods of the area, this beautiful book conveys what is most wonderful about Portland." —Marcy Blum, celebrity event planner

From the Inside Flap

Portland, Oregon Chef's Table celebrates the food and culture of what the New York Times calls the city's "Golden Age" of dining and drinking. The city's food scene—largely a celebration of the farm-to-table movement—has grown and evolved tremendously in the last five years, with an abundance of local farms, fisheries, and small beef, lamb, and pork producers providing the city's iconic restaurants with a wide array of locally-grown deliciousness. Portland, Oregon Chef's Table is the first cookbook to gather Portland's top chefs and restaurants under one cover. With over seventy recipes for the home cook from more than sixty of the city's most celebrated restaurants and showcasing stunning full-color photos from award-winning photographer Bruce Wolf, featuring mouth-watering dishes, famous chefs, and lots of local flavor, Portland, Oregon Chef's Table is the ultimate gift and keepsake cookbook for both the tourist and the Portland local.

Simply Brilliant July 18 2012
By graeme parkin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
What a great find this has proven to be. Not only do you get an introduction to some of the best restaurants that Portland has to offer, but you also get the chance to try your hand at making some of their signature dishes at home. The insightful prose is complimented by some fabulous photography, capturing both the sumptuous dishes and character of the various restaurants. This is the go to book if you need ideas for new and interesting restaurants to visit in Portland. I went to Roost on the recommendations of the book and had one of the best meals ever (and very reasonably priced ). Looking forward to visiting many more restaurants in the not too distant future. Buy this book, you'll not be disappointed.

A great way to bring Portland home with you! July 26 2012
By pleen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This beautifully styled and thoughtfully curated recipe book captures the essence of the Portland food scene. I am lucky enough to live in Portland, but whenever I have visitors in town, I struggle to find a way to describe the dynamic restaurant and food culture here -- well, the struggle is over! This book not only highlights some of the best restaurants in town, and takes it a step further by offering recipes from the restaurants that capture the flavor of Portland. It makes a great gift for visitors and locals alike!

Beautiful and Tantalizing Sept. 18 2012
By Christine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
What a beautiful book filled with outstanding recipes and gorgeous photography! Not only is it a great cookbook for those who love to be in the kitchen, but it's also a wonderful restaurant guide. I love the biographical information on the restaurants and their chefs, history, how they got started and of course, their specialties. A great book for a cookbook collector. I get hungry every time I look through it!

This book does an amazing job of diving into Portland's outstanding restaurant scene. Portland, Oregon Chef's Table is like nothing I have ever read before. I love the variety of different recipes that can be found in this book and the pictures that accompany each restaurant/recipe are a fun and creative addition. This book is user friendly and I look forward to trying more and more recipes out of it. I can only hope that there is a book no. 2 coming soon!!
The Best of Portland's Cuisine Scene Oct. 15 2013
By L.D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Laurie Wolf has brought Portland's chefs together to showcase some of their noted dishes. She has also written some background and inspirations of each chef and their establishment(s). This cookbook makes a wonderful souvenir for visitors and culinary guide to Portland. As a recent "tourist" to Portland, I found myself reminiscing over the fabulous meals I had and visits to several of the featured restaurants. Until I am able return to Portland, I can at least make some of the memorable dishes and keep Portland on my mind.
