Our October show featured all things fermented and French. First, organizers of Portland's second annual Fermentation Festival joined us in-studio to tell us about the D.I.Y. pickles, krauts and kefirs they exhibited at the second annual Portland Fermentation Festival. Then David Welch, the co-owner and bar master at Lincoln, stopped by to plug another D.I.Y. event. He's running a "Bar Camp" to take the fear out of mixing old-fashioned cocktails. Finally, Laura presented a brief recording with favorite cookbook author Dorie Greenspan, who has just published Around My French Table. Greenspan and former Oregonian food editor Martha Holmberg mused on the revival of French cuisine in a talk at the Heathman Hotel in Portland October 19.
