      Heather Arndt Anderson knows how to make a subject that might otherwise be snore fest in someone else's hands (local food history) not only infinitely interesting but she also writes with the artfulness of someone who takes the the task of writing as seriously as she does her food. Which is to say, the book was compelling, interesting, fun, and an all around joy to read. I love her work. This book is a must-have for any self-respecting Portlander or anyone who has visited, is visiting, or one da [...]

      I thought I was just going to skim this book, but it was so interesting that I read the whole thing in just a couple days. This is especially interesting if you are a long-time Oregonian. It's the perfect combination of food and history.

      Absolutely my kind of book. Portland, food, history. Yep. Makes me want to try to dig up some info about my own house and neighborhood.

      Heather Arndt Anderson came into her own with this one, which takes you back century or two into Portland gastronomy and brings you up to the present. Witty, down-to-earth, with a huge dollop of fun!

      Tourists and Portlandia fans may have certain ideas about Portland's food scene. Visions of food carts, hippie vegan restaurants, grilled cheese buses, blue cheese ice cream shops, and mile-long brunch lines dance in their heads. Yes, those are all a part of Portland's bustling and dynamic culinary culture today--but how did it all begin?In Portland: A Food Biography, Breakfast A History author and Portland native Heather Arndt Anderson starts from our fair city's not-so-humble beginnings, when [...]

      If you have a passion for food, anthropology, history, immigration stories, nutrition, restaurants, Huber’s Spanish Coffee, commerce, or alcohol making, or Portland, this book is for you! I’m putting it at the top of the suggestion list for next year’s book group schedule and will cheat if needed to get it picked. I’m so certain that all of the foodies, urban farmer types, and history lovers in the group will find it as fascinating as I do. Unlike many books published in a series, Arndt [...]

      This was a strangely compelling book about the history of Portland, told through the lens of food and the production of food. I tried to just skim it, but ended up reading the whole thing.

      Thorough history of Portland and the food produced and eaten from 1800's to present.

      A subject with potential, but the book is in desperate need of an editor. It suffers from the same problem that all graduate student histories initially have, which is too much information and too many tangential asides. Just because you discover a real neat fact in an archive, or during your research, you shouldn't include it unless it is pertinent to the narrative.
