We just heard yesterday, via our friends at Eater Portland, that Morgan Brownlow, co-owner of Tails & Trotters (and previous Indie Food Partner who carved up some of his deliciously addictive prosciutto at our 2010 event) is hoping to open a storefront. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Tails & Trotters is best known for its hazelnut-fed pork products that can be found at local restaurants, butcher shops and farmers markets.
Morgan and his fellow co-owner Aaron Silverman will be fundraising for their future project through the Kickstarter micro-lending program, and to spread the good word, they’re hosting free prosciutto tastings from now until September in various PDX locations. Be sure to stop by to taste some of the best prosciutto we’ve ever had.
Congrats, Morgan! We hope to see you again at next year’s Indie.
