On our very first sales trip to Portland, we stopped in at Pastaworks on SE Hawthorne and met the inimitable Jane Meredith. Right away we knew there was something special happening in this European style gourmet food store. Everybody was having fun and the arrival of Doug’s Nuts was greeted with hoots and haw-haws, as is appropriate. So this week’s Kernel of Appreciation goes to Jane and all the fine peeps at Pastaworks (Hawthorne, N. Mississippi and NW 21st). Thanks so much for helping bring Doug’s Nuts to all our soon to be friends in Portland!
