Portland Fermented.


News
"How many people here have problems with surface molds?" asks Sandor Katz, the wild haired man standing on a chair in the middle of Ecotrust's second floor conference room. A ton of hands shoot up from the crowd, which is packed into the room like, well, hunks of cabbage in a crock. They are here to share information, troubleshoot and generally geek out at all things pickled here at Portland's ...   More

TBA Diary: Planted!


News
I must admit, I was disappointed about the “tablecloth.” What was advertised in the TBA guide as a “giant, checkered picnic blanket” and what I had imagined as a rolling sea of gingham turned out to be large red and white tarps, spread apart in a vast rectangle.

Sharp Knife: Q&A with America's Test Kitchen's Chris Kimball


News
Home cooks adore him. Bloggers can't stand him. Foodies call him simultaneously brilliant and boring. On his relentless path toward culinary perfection, he has certainly stepped on a lot of toes (especially when critiquing the ever-growing food blogosphere, which he recently blamed for the demise of Gourmet magazine). Yet Chris Kimball, the studious, and perhaps obsessive, creator of America's ...   More
