I'm the host of a local cooking and travel show called "Everyday Chefs!" I've traveled around the world to document some of the most special recipes in Mexico, Spain, Italy, Thailand, and Colombia. On my Food Cart Tour we'll be visiting some of the cuisines that I studied while on assignment abroad. I've worked closely with these food cart owners to showcase their cuisine and also its cultural context. Also, I've been giving history and food tours of Portland since 2012.
8 to 10 tasting samples at 6 to 8 Food carts
On this tour we'll visit 4 distinct food cart "pods," little units of 6 to 30 food carts that each have their distinct vibe and character. We'll also visit the lobby of a historic hotel and see the beautiful wood paneling that lumber baron Simon Benson designed and installed himself.
