"This is a real cookbook?" was my reaction when I popped open The Portlandia Cookbook: Cook Like a Local. I shouldn't have been surprised since it says so in the title, but I guess I was hoping for a wall-to-wall laugh fest in the form of a silly self-parody of the television show's eccentric char...

This cookbook is a miss. It attempts to mix humor with food - but I cannot tell if the recipes are real or not. Many of them look disgusting, but some look earnest, and I can't tell which would actually work if I made them. Then the jokes are all terribly recycled and presented from such a mish-m...

I checked this out of the library because I am researching life in Portland. I am considering moving up there. I never saw the show, but I love this Portlandia Cookbook! The food looks great and this book is SO funny. It makes me want to watch the show.
