Portland: Obsession factor

Portlanders are obsessed with food and urban farms—maybe even too obsessed. Where else could a Basic Pig Slaughtering class become an instant hot ticket? Or a law pass that allows every household to have up to 3 pygmy goats within city limits? And we have at least 19 notable cookbook authors, including Janie Hibler, whose books have snagged 1 James Beard award and 2 nominations.

Score: 8
