The Art of Sandwich Strata Zen

Recently, I joined the Citysearch team as their Portland captain, which basically means I regularly post tips and writeups on Citysearch Portland about what deliciousness I’ve been eating around town. So you know, the usual. One aspect of the new and improved Citysearch format that I’m really having fun with are the Guides–curated thematic picture boards of exceptional eats.

So far I’ve done a croissant guide (Bakeries With Croissants Worth Getting Crumbs In Your Cleavage For) and a sweet shop guide (Shops Where You May Have To Sedate Your Sweet Tooth If It’s Overly Excitable), and today, I bring you: Spots Where You’ll Never Be A Few Sandwiches Short of a Picnic. In the most literal sense, of course. See all 9 sandwich swamis here>>

Naturally, this necessitated a feast of feasts, prepared in a cute cabin at the edge of the magnificent Metolius River.

My resulting behind the scenes peek at these chefs/salumists/farmer-cidermakers on their off hours, complete with gorgeous photographs by the ever-brilliant David Reamer, just came out this week in Mix Magazine. It’s a fun read with loads of recipes so good they are even tempting me to get in the kitchen, and that’s saying a lot. You can pick up a Mix on the stand, or read the article online here>>

I took plenty of pictures of my own that weekend, with my mighty iPhone 4s, pretty purple haze free ones too. I thought I’d share a few, for a look behind the scenes of the scene’s behind. Or something like that. Read full story »
