14 Things I Love


If only there was an app for that: I'm talking about 100 Things We Love, the compilation of the year's best food, drink, books and places to fuel your next obsession, put together by the writers and contributors to the Oregonian's FoodDay section.

This year it covers everything from farmers' markets to pantry must-haves to bookshelf staples, and the editor was kind enough to include a few of mine:
It's always a great read, and I guarantee you'll discover things that you never knew existed. Now to get my in-house programmer working on that app…

What a world it would be if the "O" could get it together for a Top 100 app. In lieu of that seeming impossibility, thanks for keeping us in the loop and inspiring local exploration!

nice input, *again*, Kathleen!
an app wouldn't be such a bad idea. =)

This is always such a fun feature to contribute to, with such great ideas from other folks. I always learn something!

I saw your mention of the F & D Bahn Mi in the paper yesterday. I'm guessing it's about double what I might pay in a Vietnamese place. True?

At $8 it's more than double what you'd pay at most local Vietnamese places. But you're getting Pearl Bakery bread (only unbleached wheat flour with no preservatives or dough conditioners), pate from Chop (naturally raised meat and local ingredients) and pickles from a tiny local producer (again, mostly organic and no preservatives). Plus it's pretty dang tasty. Nice to have alternatives, no?
