Ken Gordon, owner and Chef of Portland's Kenny & Zuke's Delicatessen, opened his first restaurant two blocks east of Thomas Keller in New York City in 1986. The two dined at each others' restaurants.  We cover one of their histories here, which includes the disappointment of microwaved corned beef, the joy of hand-sliced pastrami, why Portland isn't the best walking city in the country, and two offspring on exciting career paths.

Host Chris Angelus loves his fish and chips, and has a few faves ranging 330 miles up and down the Pacific Northwest coast from Port Orford, OR to South Bend, WA.  He shares a half dozen,  but recommends three places he deems worthy of a day trip from Portland, for those who travel to eat well. One's a nice restaurant, another a dive, and last but not least, a food truck.

When Ken Forkish decided he wanted to become a baker, he became one of the best there is.  Now Portlanders not only flock to Ken's Artisan Bakery, Ken's Artisan Pizza, Trifecta and his latest, Trifecta Annex, but anyone can enjoy his work as a James Beard awarded cookbook author.  Ken stops by to talk baseball, dough, and more.

#87 Brian Spangler - Apizza Scholls (w/Janis Martin)

Brian Spangler's ascension into the psyche of Portland through his acclaimed and loved pizza started with the dough, learning how to bake in northern California while in college.  That led him to buy an Oregon Farm, the Portland Farmers Market, a pub, and then to Hawthorne Blvd.  He shares his story and Chick Fil A sandwiches with us, which for this episode, includes his friend Janis Martin of Tanuki sitting in to join in the conversation.

Janis Martin has an opinion or two, and we're glad she stopped into Right at the Fork to share a couple.  She'd really like you to know what Tanuki isn't, and is, before you step into the cauldron of Janis.  So listen up.  We warned you.
