Portland Fermentation Festival
- Hi folks,
A friend just told me about this neat raw food event coming up next week, featuring Sandor Katz, author of Wild Fermentation.
Also, a friend told me about a new food cart on Alberta serving raw gourmet. It is located at Alberta and 23rd and serves raw vegan foods like sea veggie salads and cacao shake.
