Lindsay Sterling challenges us all to be more outgoing/adventurous in our eating this year, in her column in this week’s Portland Phoenix.
“In a nutshell: the world is already coming to us, so let’s just pay closer attention! People are smuggling Venezuelan cheese to Portland Jetport in their suitcases! In a yellow corner store across from Maine Med, mashed yuca is being turned into fried magic that even picky American five-year-olds gobble up like hot dogs. A dental hygienist in South Portland is making Croatian cookies for a church function this month. World food is upon us right here, people!”
Also in this week’s Phoenix is a list of “budget-friendly activities and events” including a list of local low cost eateries and bars.
