Just wanted to let you know that I have changed the name of the Portland Food Network to the Pacific NorthWest Food Network. I wanted to broaden the scope and geography of it all. There is a lot more going on than just Portland/Oregon. Invite your friends to the group and start posting. (I know it says portlandfoodnetwork, but I could not change that part)
