My “ah-ha” moment came during a spontaneous trip to Vancouver B.C., when I realized the nine-five just wasn’t going to cut it for my wanderlust nature. Three years later, and over 30 countries under my belt I’m still seeking new adventures, many of which curiously revolve around lunch. Since it seems this food-centric travel thing is in my blood for good, guiding fellow foodie adventurers through my fabulous Pacific Northwest backyard seems a perfect fit!

The best thing I ever ate: One of the things I love most about being a food tour guide in Portland is that I get to show-off some of my favorite spots. Having said this, it's extremely hard to nail-down one place that's better than the rest, in part because chef's are continuously changing their menus depending on what's in season, but also because I'm always trying out new places under the guise of "research". But, if you're going to make me choose just one meal that haunts my dreams, I once had this ricotta gnocchi dish with fried zucchini flowers and finished with a light honey drizzle that made me want to lick the bowl clean.

Even from an early age I have been obsessed with food, but it wasn’t until my epic round the world trip that I began to see how large a role it played in my daily life. I watched as the motivation for my travels slowly morphed from hitting major landmarks and sightseeing, to seeking out and sampling the very best food the various cultures and countries had to offer. This philosophy still holds true, and I often find my free time spent exploring the corners of Portland, checking out the endless restaurants and food carts this foodie city has to offer.

Growing up in the 70's, I was raised on microwaved, boxed, and canned meals. Moving to Portland was a culinary game changer for me. Arriving in one of the best growing regions anywhere at the same time that the Farm to Table movement was settling in turned me into a vegetable-loving locavore almost overnight.

In addition to being a PDX foodie guide, I spend my time as a food, drink, and outdoor writer and photographer. Online, I write for Eater PDX and in print, my work has appeared in Portland Monthly, 1859, Northwest Travel & Life, and Backpacker magazines. I am also the author of the guidebooks Hiking Waterfalls in Oregon, Best Outdoor Adventures Near Portland, 25 Hikes on Oregon’s Tillamook Coast, and the forthcoming Unique Eats & Eateries: Portland.

I became an official member of the Eat Adventures Portland Food Tours team in 2012, and have been happily chauffeuring foodies throughout Oregon ever since. From jaunts through the city on our food carts, urban winery, or Best of Portland tours - to longer journeys to the Oregon Coast, Mt.Hood / Columbia River Gorge, and Willamette Valley wine country - I’m here for all your transportation needs. Just sit back, enjoy the tasty treats and beautiful scenery (maybe even indulge in an innocent nap between wineries) and leave the hard part to me!

” ‘Best Of Portland’ was the best!”

"We did two tours, downtown walking food tour and the best of Portland. The best of Portland was by far the best value. Our guide Adam was great; very informative, good energy and provided a wide array of places for us to visit. Our group was just the perfect size. We loved the cold smoked scallops at Southpark seafood! The portions were ample and we were just full enough at the end of the tour."

Highly informative and entertaining food guide. Interesting food spots! Wine stop was very good. Enjoyed the Food Hall as well as the food cart stops! Melissa could give us all the interesting background about the food, the restaurant, the owner/chef. She could also tell us a lot about the Portland food scene including other good places to eat!

“Great way to see Portland and eat some good food.”

"Travel by van to different food truck pods throughout Portland. Enjoyed the food at each stop and it was nice to learn some history of Portland along with information about the food trucks. Both of us were stuffed by the end of the Portland Food Carts & Neighborhood Tour. Would highly recommend."

“Come Hungry!”

"Melissa was very personable and informative on this Alberta Arts tour.The murals were beautiful with some works in progress. The food and drink were absolutely delicious! We came to the tour hungry thinking we would be able to eat everything - wrong. Still went home with a take out box. Would highly recommend this tour."

“Must-do for foodies”

"I can highly recommend the Food Carts & Neighborhoods Tour . Food carts are a unique feature of the Portland food scene and a great introduction to the (uniquely) different neighborhoods and their "food clusters". And the food is first-class as well; apparently some of the best restaurants in Portland started off as food carts. Adam (our guide) was an amazing guide. Deeply knowledgeable about and experienced in the food cart scene, he was a wealth of interesting information and anecdotes making the tour very enjoyable."

“Fantastic way to explore Portland!”

"With our host Adam, who knows a lot and is a good story teller, we did beverage and food tasting all over Portland in a brewery, fish restaurant, a winery and a foodcart. We even had dessert in a nice ice cream place. Perfect way to explore Portland. Thanks Adam and Eat Adventures!"

“Lots of Fun!”

"My husband and I were visiting Portland for the first time and we wanted to see different parts of the city and eat delicious food. This was the perfect tour us. We did the "Best of Portland" tour. All the food was very good and we definitely went to areas we probably wouldn't have gone. We also got great recommendations on where to eat for the rest of our stay. Our guide was very knowledgeable and super helpful. We would highly recommend the tour!"
