The Portlandia Cookbook: Cook Like a Local by Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein with Jonathan Krisel ($18.84)

Musicians, comedians, and now cookbook authors, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein provide a companion to their hit show Portlandia. Inspired by “every food lover, freegan, organic farmer, and food truck diehard,” the book features everything from pickles to paella to all the types of milk and everything is infused with the show’s signature humor. It also features real Portlanders, from local chefs , to proprietors of local well known establishments, to regular locals who like to eat. Learn how to make Wild Mushroom and Artichoke Tartines, Borscht with Pickles, Eggs, and Horseradish Cream, and Marionberry Pancakes.

I bought this for my vegan brother-in-law who is a fan of the show. While the cookbook itself is not vegan, he told me he easily adjusted many of the recipes and that they turned out delicious. My bro-in-law found the book hilarious and full of great recipes, so I give it 5 stars.Jamie Wharton
