We’re in Portland this week, and there’s a lot to love in this town when it comes to food: food trucks, farmers markets, artisanal cheese, artisanal everything.

It's hard to know where to begin. After all, who's a food snob, and who's a food lover?

Enter Leo and Soren Westrey. They consider themselves anti-food snobs. And they also happen to be only nine years old. Leo and Soren are the young twins who write the food blog, KIDCHOWPDX, which includes everything from restaurant reviews to recipes.

John, John, John - I like your show, but you're bigger than relying on the ol' NPR fall-back: FOOD (restaurants, recipes, cookbooks, regional cuisine, celebrity chefs, etc., etc.).

"Food" as a time killer must be a slippery slope; NPR programs seem to be addicted to it. One of the program hosts even made a self-directed joke of it saying something like, "This is an important subject, not just some filler story like recipes."

Keep up the good work.

Hey John - I challenge you and your 3 yr old son to come up with a tasty recipe for home made chicken nuggets that you and he make from scratch!
