Win The Portlandia Cookbook

Portlandia Cookbook

Portland takes food very seriously. There exists such a degree of food austerity that instead of being an award-winning comedy so good it's starting its fifth season in January, the show Portlandia could have been a procedural drama about unfit artisanal seltzer. In Portland, if you're going to bottle club soda in hand-etched beakers at a farmers' market, it better be infused with organic, locally-sourced, cage-free, house-made CO2.

To celebrate the food that defines the city and the show, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein have made The Portlandia Cookbook: Cook Like a Local. With more than 50 recipes from Portland restaurants and from the show's characters (Mr. Mayor, Kath and Dave, Peter and Nance, and more), the book would be a fine companion at an Allergy Pride Parade for any foodie, freegan, gastroethologist, foodtrucker or adult babysitter.

We're giving three of you each a copy of The Portlandia Cookbook: Cook Like a Local. All you have to do is watch our exclusive Fred and Carrie You're Eating It Wrong video, then tell us your favorite coffee tip in the comments below.

Here are a few of the recipes from the book you could be making for your next viewing/pickling party:
