It's Portland's time to Shine: Help with the Kickstarter Campaign

Trailer Food fans, the second edition in this cookbook series features the food cart mecca of Portland, Oregon.  Recipes include: broccoli cheddar and apple soup, Marionberry Pie Holes, Jambalaya, Wheat Porter, Sweet Molasses Cornbread, Country Pate, Moong Dal, Becky's Blue Cheese Cole Slaw and more.  You'll love reading the stories behind the recipes too: the guy hiking the continental divide when a sudden injury twisted fate, or the woman who survived a heinous crime and lived to sell waffles....

****Please pre-purchase a copy of the Portland edition of Trailer Food Diaries: Cookbook to support this project.*****

Still a self-published project, this book will not go to print without your help.  Please take a few minutes to pledge your support (any amount will do, but starting at $25 you'll get a limited edition signed copy).  Please consider nabbing a few copies as gifts to have on hand for friends, holidays, birthdays, bunco, or for your coffee table.  The recipes are easy enough for any home chef to create, and the stories couldn't be more inspiring.

Looking ahead: Look forward to posts about my journey this June to New Mexico, Colorado, Lousiana, and Florida seeking out the country's best food trucks and trailers for the 'best of the US' edition in the cookbook series.  We will have guest posts up from colleagues in Portland and Boston ~ it's going to be a fab summer in Trailer land.
