Portland Connection

When I was in middle school one of my classmates took an interest in cooking even before I did. After we moved on to high school, he even gave my mom a recipe for broccoli cheese soup she still uses to this day. Of course, the recipe contains an ingredient or two any good foodie would ashamed to cook with, but hey the guy was only fourteen or so when he passed it along! You've got to start somewhere. And boy, did this guy go places...
Today my former class-mate, Christopher Thompson, is the chef owner of Iorio Restaurant in Portland, Oregon. Portland City Search named Iorio the Best Fine Dining Restaurant of 2009 and since Leif was there on business this week he made a reservation. Leif ate there last night and said Chef Thompson was extremely generous and welcoming and both his beet salad and gnocchi were sublime! If you ask me, this was a pretty amazing full circle moment!

I'll pass this info along to Chris' siblings that live in Portland. Next time we will have to check him out!
