PORTLAND NEWS: "'No herb is safe' from weed-stealing sous-chefs, says apt. manager"

gastronomics | Nov 4, 201312:47 PM

"The apartment manager of a Southeast Portland apartment complex says he can't get employees from local restaurants to stop climbing his fence and picking wild weeds from his property. Martin Connolly thinks random weeds and plants are going into dishes at nice restaurants because he lives around plenty of trendy restaurants at Southeast 16th and Hawthorne.

'You can always tell they’ve been here: There's beard nets. I found this recipe lying back here the other day,' he says.

Connolly says he can even recognize their scent: 'Sometimes smells like brisket.'"

Just saw this and as had to share. :)
