Don Salamone, like many others, landed in Portland because of its cost of entry as a chef.  Armed with a solid work ethic and a resume that included stops at Michelin-starred restaurants, he opened a food cart, Burger Stevens.  We talk about what Michael Russell's glowing review meant to him, how he came up with that name, and where Don's sights are set.

Portland fast-casual newbie XLB Chef and owner Jasper Shen joins us to talk about the road that went from being taught by a dishwasher how to chop onions, to coming to Portland to open Aviary without ever having spent a day in the city, to his new venture serving the food he first enjoyed as a child.  And many things in between.
