Join us on Tuesday, March 19 at 7:00pm for a delectable talk with Oregonian Foodday editor, Katherine Miller. She will be sharing stories and recipes from the recently published Oregonian Cookbook. Many of the recipes are reader favorites from Portland-area restaurants, bars, cafes, bakeries, and sandwich shops and delis. There are also recipes from former Foodday editors Martha Holmberg and Chris Christensen, staff writers and popular contributors such as Ivy Manning, Linda Faus, Sara Bir, Matthew Card, Danielle Centoni, Jan Roberts-Dominguez, Laura Russell and Lynne Sampson-Curry. The book also features recipes from local and nationally known cookbook authors Diane Morgan, Sara Perry, and Janie Hibler, as well as chefs like Giuliano Bugiali, Alice Waters, Ann Willan, Alice Medrich, and Thomas Keller. Even the paper’s readers are represented. “Our goal was to provide a cross-section of recipes for dishes that Portlanders and Oregonians love to eat,” says Katherine Miller. “We wanted to provide a generous collection that appealed to all of Foodday’s readers. I think this will be a collection for which Oregonians will have a feeling of pride and ownership.”
Katherine Miller joined The Oregonian’s Foodday staff in 1990 after several years as an editor at other metro daily newspapers. She has also been an editor and writer at electronic publishing ventures, and an associate producer in public television. In 1999, Miller was nominated for a James Beard Foundation award for news reporting. Her love of cooking, farmers markets and dining out was sparked by early visits to her grandparents’ rural Virginia home, and a year living in the Haute-Savoie region of France. This is her first book.
