Meat á la Mode by Kristina Von Kroug

Inspired by family traditions as well as by historical recipes and cooking techniques, Meat á la Mode puts a new twist on classic comfort food. My meat pies and savory ice creams explore the flavors of more rarely used game meats such as rabbit, oxtail, or alligator in addition to serving up childhood favorites like chicken noodle soup or macaroni and cheese -- all in pie form! Meat á la Mode strives to create a journey of taste encased in a golden, flaky crust.

Meat á la Mode's unique meat pies entice the discerning carnivore with mouth-watering flavor combinations, two types of pastry, and a decadent edible gold topping.

Keep watching -- I'm working hard to build a little emPIEre...

Bourdain in PDX

So, basically Tony Bourdain reiterated my overall stance on food in general: Does it taste good? Well, then...Shut the eff up and eat.

Mouthbreather audience members aside, it was was a humorous anecdote to Mr. Bourdain's delicious show and highly entertaining books. I said hello and gave him a MALM t-shirt -- hopefully that was one of the less awkward items he received that evening (If I were him, I wouldn't be digging into the random food offerings creepily presented to him on stage, but this guy is quite adventurous...)
