Food & Drink

I'm Chris - or Christopher - or Mr. Dean - or Master Christopher - or just plain Sir. I'm a self-professed foodie. I love to cook and I take great pleasure in all things edible. My husband and I are relatively new to Portland, Oregon and are enjoying our culinary explorations of the area!

Food is NOT just fuel!

Dried Arbol Chiles

I love these. Truly. I like keeping a bowl of them in the kitchen and adding them as needed to give a little kick to dishes. And if you're truly daring, crumble one over top of your finished pasta dish for a spicy finish. I totally got this idea from watching Mario Batali - he always has dried chiles available when he's cooking, instead of red pepper flakes. Love it!
