Podcast: Lisa Schroeder

David chats with Lisa Schroeder, the juggernaut behind Mother’s Bistro & Bar and Mama Mia Trattoria, both in Portland, Oregon, about her new book. Along the way they touch on the importance of family at the table, the need for good, stick-to-your-ribs meals, and $15,000 crab cakes.

Poached Pear, Rogue River Blue Cheese, and Hazelnut Salad
Bacon and Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese
Chicken and Dumplings


  1. I love Mother’s Crab Cake recipe. Where can I get it? When I lived in Portland we used to love the restaurant and her “Cooking with Kids” events.
