The Portlandia Cookbook Coming in 2015, Will Include Famous ‘Colin the Chicken’ Recipe


Portlandia, the IFC show by Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, is known for its hilarious takes on the charming, curious folks of Portland, OR.  As many die-hard viewers also know, the show is filled with some of the most memorable food sketches on television.

The Portlandia Cookbook will present “characters in the show and 50 related recipes” including allusions to the “Colin the Chicken” sketch and pickled everything.  Fans may even be able to snag the recipes for dishes like marionberry pancakes. Armisen and Brownstein have signed with Clarkson Potter to produce the book, which will contain “stories and sidebars” in addition to recipes. It’s slated for Spring 2015, but we’re willing to wait just like Fred and Carrie did for that well deserved brunch.

FYI to Portlandia fans out there: Season 4 starts on February 27.

[ADVENTURE] One Day of Feasting in Portlandia


Portland: The home of thick-framed glasses, artists, mountains and — great food. It’s no secret that the Northwest is crawling with bangin’ restaurants. The hard part is getting over there, though. Last week I had the pleasure of visiting the West Coast. Since I could only squeeze one day in Portland, I made sure to spend every moment eating in that charming, delicious city.




Tour the World’s Only Vegan Strip Club [NSFW]


“You know how sometimes you’re like, oh I want to see naked women today, and I want to get vegan food, and I don’t have time to make two stops?”

Sigh, hate when that happens. Thank goodness comedian Kumail Nanjiani of the “Kumail Tours Portland” webisodes (run by the same peeps of Portlandia) has introduced the world to Casa Diablo — supposedly the world’s only vegan strip club.

The venue is located in Portland, of course, and features a vegan-friendly menu, along with a kitchen that seems to double as a dressing room.

In the video, Kumail ventures into this first stip club (oh boy!) and learns how to properly fondle a tortilla chip.
