"Feeling full of love and light after an incredible week. Celebrating my amazing partner, seeing so many people I love, welcoming new friends to town and saying goodbye as old friends, opening surprise presents in the early morning, cooking from my heart, feeling every second. Thank you to all of my friends, across the country and across the world, for filling me with joy and love and strength. This has been one hell of a week, a year, a life.

"My favorite Fried Chicken in Portland! Hands down, the crispiness is just right, balance and spices are addictive yet the chef clearly respects the chicken. Plus, chicken fried in 3 fats?! So good!"
