journeyPod and Foodtrekker have teamed up to explore the culinary hub of Portland, Oregon. Portland is a big small city with a wide variety of unique neighborhoods. Each neighborhood tells a unique story and the people around you are extremely friendly and laid back.
Take the MAX transit system to the neighborhoods of Hawthorne, Sellwood and Alberta or drive an hour to the nearest beach, volcano, mountain, vineyard or brewery.
Erik Wolf, President and CEO of the International Culinary Tourism Association and Publisher of Foodtrekker.com explains that culinary tourism is more than a 5-star restaurant and focuses on the culinary culture of a city - chefs, local ingredients, cooking schools, recipes, etc.
Sip on a Depth Charge or Mexican Coffee at Coffee People. Enjoy a Pineapple Habanero Martini at Vault and Clark Lewis and let your tastebuds hop around at one of Portland's many Breweries like the Alameda Brewing House.
Enjoy podsafe artist Allison Crowe and her hit "This little bird".
