"If I loved Portland, Oregon any more, I'd have to consider changing the name of my blog to Justcook PDX," says Justin Schwartz, author of Veg Out Vegetarian Guide to New York City, The Marshmallow Fluff Cookbook and the dude behind Justcooknyc.com. Schwarz raves about his time spent at the recent IACP confab in "my way-too-long Portland post" citing a couple of local favorites for shout-outs: "No joke, I visted Voodoo Doughnut four times. This place is worth the hype." He adds: "A trip to Portland without dining at Pok Pok would be a serious mistake." Cataloging her culinary adventures on her gluten-free Wasibimon, Stephanie Stiavetti, a food writer from San Francisco, declared the conference "a smashing success." And Michelle Stern, of kid-friendly Whatscookingblog.com, went out on a limb in her blog post, IACP Portland – Empowering, Inspiring and Delicious , stating, "I have a sneaking suspicion that the week I spent at the IACP Conference in Portland will be life changing." She adds: "There was no shortage of inspiration. (Presenter Ruth Riechl) eloquently reminded us that we can change our food system by voting with our food dollars – which we did as we ate our way through Portland!"
