ABOUT THE BOOK
Portland Chefs Are Taking It To The Streets!
For a fresh take on a variety of cuisines, reservations won’t be necessary. Just step up to a food cart instead. Tour the city’s finest carts with author Steven Shomler and meet the innovative and enterprising chefs serving masterpieces from mobile kitchens. Chefs like Nick and Carina of Cheese Plate PDX, who served the Dalai Lama when he was in town. Or Sean and McKinze, who started the Georgian-inspired cart Kargi Gogo after living overseas in Georgia. Portland’s food carts draw talent from across the country. Roy and Kimmy of Retrolicious left behind their own diner in Arizona to join the scene in Portland. These food cart pioneers, and many others, are profiled in a mouthwatering look at a unique dining experience Portland has perfected.
