The companion cookbook to the hit show Portlandia by the Emmy-nominated stars and writers Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, with 50 delicious recipes for every food lover, freegan, organic farmer, and food truck diehard.

Food plays a very special role in Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s award-winning satire Portlandia and now you can cook the dishes that define the show, from cult-raised chicken and Stu’s stews to pickled veggies and foraged green salads. Complete with full-color finished food photographs and illustrations, humorous stories and sidebars from the loveable food-obsessed Portlandia characters (such as Mr. Mayor, Peter and Nance, and Colin the chicken), and advice on how to choose a bed and breakfast and behave at a communal table, this is a funny cookbook—with serious recipes—for anyone who loves food. And yes, the chicken’s local.
FRED ARMISEN and CARRIE BROWNSTEIN are the Emmy-nominated, Peabody Award winning, co-creators, co-writers, and co-stars of Portlandia. Armisen is an eleven-season veteran of Saturday Night Live, and the bandleader on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Brownstein is well-known as a member of the rock band Sleater-Kinney. Her writing has appeared in the New York Times, Believer, and Slate.

JONATHAN KRISEL is the co-creator, co-writer, and series director of Portlandia. He has written and directed shows for Adult Swim, Comedy Central,, and Saturday Night Live, where he is a staff writer.
