Ceviche Redux

At the age of 25 I’ve learned a lot from traveling the world. As a traveling cook I’ve been able to taste a lot, too. With all the tasting its inevitable that after some time my palate has become very sophisticated, yet I’ve still had some hurdles to get over. Ceviche has been, or was one […]

Random last-minute trips without any planning seem to take you on the most amazing adventures. Within ten days of booking a flight and then stepping out of PDX International Airport, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. A Chicagoan landed in the state of Oregon without any true expectations. For the next seven days what […]
