Corvallis food activists are sharing ideas with their counterparts in Canada. Host Laura McCandlish interviews Elizabeth Fraser of The Stop, "an innovative anti-poverty and anti-hunger program" in Toronto. It’s a unique urban food bank/prenatal clinic/ open kitchen with ample community gardens.  We also hear from Rebecka Weinsteiger, who is working to plan a similar South Corvallis Community Food Center Project. Fraser particularly enjoyed Portland's food culture, since backyard chickens and food carts aren't allowed in Canada.

On our April 20th show, Breakfast in Bridgetown author Paul Gerald talks up late-night/early morning munchies spots.

Portland transplant and pastry chef Kim Boyce dropped by to chat about Good to the Grain, her new ode to baking with whole-grain flours. Kim generously shared the recipe for her Rhubarb Tarts (the book's cover image) with us here.

Then we bring you a special treat: the return of the Roquefort Files, KBOO’s homage du fromage. Justin Miller and Stuart Margolis, KBOO’s cheese wizs in residence, review a spectacular cheese from Switzerland that’s not your mama’s swiss.

Finally, we revisit the controversial issue of eating shark's finsA bill to ban the sale of shark's fin in Oregon had a public hearing April 20. Rep. Brad Witt (D-Clatskanie) sponsored the bill. We speak to the West Coast Seafood Processors Association's Rod Moore about the push to exclude spiny dogfish (a non-endangered type of shark) from the ban. It's a valuable sidecatch for Oregon fishermen and a less expensive source of shark's fin in Chinese cuisine.

crab fan here in portland

I am the daughter of a fishing captain (private sportfishing) and born/raised on the east coast of Fla so I know fish and shell fish!!   I am a HUGE fan of Dungeness crab since moving here last Nov!  Yes, Dung. is way better and more fulfilling than blue crab and my top two favorites!!  The one comperable crab is the Fla Stonecrab which you only pull one claw off the crab and release the crab so it can grow another appendage!!!  nice not having to kill the crab to enjoy eating it!!   Gotta try this sweet crab claw!!!  Really superior just as Dung. is!!!
