More than just food carts and microbrews, Portland has a story to tell. Its culinary history sings the song of the salmon-people, the pioneers and immigrants, each struggling to make this strange but inviting land between the Pacific and the Cascades feel like home. Portland: A Food Biography chronicles the Rose City's rise from a Wild West outpost -- a diminutive extension of San Francisco -- to the critical darling of the national food scene.
