A Week of Local Press

14 Sep

This week was a fun and exciting week as both the blog and the Cooking Matters for Parents class that I teach through the Oregon Food Bank were both in the local press here. I think the only times in my life I have ever been in any type of newspaper were in the police log in Carmel, and the one insane time that my ex Brendan and I were asked to dress up and march in the kings 50th anniversary parade in Thailand, and we woke up to find a picture of ourselves on the cover of a paper there(not kidding).

The article featuring the blog was an awesome piece by a co-worker of mine on homemade infusions. It included the infused honey article I wrote a while back and has some really great ideas for many other home infusion projects. Check it out here:

The cooking class was in the Oregonian last week. Check it out here:

Again, I work for the Food Bank, not Catholic Charities, so if you live here in Portland and are interested in volunteering for a 6 week class that meets once a week as a chef instructor, shopper or lead assistant, go to the Oregon Food Bank Volunteer section of their site (http://www.oregonfoodbank.org/Volunteer), and sign up now. They just opened the registration for new classes yesterday.

Thank you for your support and stay tuned!
