This week’s photos of Food & People is by Lisa Mclaughlin. Below is what Lisa has to say about the photos and her experience of Portland, Oregon.

Portland Oregon has developed into one of the premiere foodie destinations in the U.S. Surrounded by excellent but often underrated wine country and verdant farmland, the quirky city is a locavores dream. The artisanal approach to food taken by most restaurants in town also extends to drink; along with exceptional Stumptown coffee and many microbreweries, there are over 50 spirits made by the city’s micro-distilleries, many of which can be found on the east side of the city in an area dubbed Distillery Row. For cheap eats, the city is dotted with collections of food carts serving Thai, Italian, Lebanese, Russian or Hawaiian cuisines or specializing in single foods like Read More

Food and People – Rioja, Spain with Lisa Mclaughlin

By mahir | October 14, 2010

This week’s photos of Food & People is the second piece by Lisa Mclaughlin, an amazing food writer. Below is what Lisa has to say about the photos and her experience of Rioja, Spain.

Rioja is the most celebrate wine region in Spain, famed for earthy reds made from the Tempranillo grape. Legend has it that a nephew of the biblical Noah brought the first vines to the region after the Flood and indeed there has been a vibrant wine industry in this area for most of recorded history. Traveling through the region, we visited wineries both young and old. We sipped vintages from historic and medieval cellars as well as those that were stunning examples of contemporary modern architecture like the breathtakingly curvaceous Bodegas Ysios winery designed by Santiago Calatrava. At the Marques de Riscal the old and new combine with both a cellar filled with bottles from the 1860s and an undulating avant-garde hotel designed by Frank Gehry.

Food and People – Lima, Peru with Lisa Mclaughlin

By mahir | October 7, 2010

This week’s photos of Food & People is by Lisa Mclaughlin, an amazing food writer. Below is what Lisa has to say about the photos and her experience of Lima, Peru.

Mistura is an annual gastronomy festival founded by Chef Gaston Acurio who has spearheaded the popularization of Peruvian cuisine both at home and abroad. One of the most amazing things about Mistura, which I attended in 2009, is that while famous chefs from Peru and around the world attend and proffer demos and tastings, the festival is mostly about celebrating all cooks and food equally. The final award last year went not to a Michelin-starred chef but the woman who helms a popular street cart on a Lima street corner serving anticuchos – marinated beef heart kebobs grilled over open flames.

The food stalls at Mistura represent some of the best fine dining restaurants in the city and also the traditional food found in different regions of the country like tacu tacu, an afro-Peruvian dish of beans and rice formed into a cake; causa rellena which are yellow mashed potatoes seasoned with lime and aji peppers and filled with crab; fire-roasted fish cooked on banana leaves called patarashca and cuy frito, or deep-fried guinea pig.
