The Greenroom Gourmet is a collection of recipes designed for the on-the-go/gotta-day-job lifestyle. The fare is eclectic and degrees of complexity in preparation vary from toss-it-in-a-bowl to break-out-the-pots-and-pans. But the bottom line, the fruits of your labor can be:
  • Packed into a tupperware container and transported easily to work or stored in the freezer for later; and
  • Enjoyed cold or after nuking in the microwave – no more kitchen required.

Now the other unique dimension to this book is that each recipe comes from a Portland-area theatre artist: actors, directors, designers, playwrights, audience members, etc. Why theatre? Don't non-theatre people have to eat? Well, yes; but enough about them. The life of a theatre artist is often one of unstable hours (late nights in theatres, basements, on the road), financial conservation (bah! who needs indoor plumbing?), and underrecognition (even the best shows play before half-empty houses). So, the Portland Area Theatre Alliance presents a book by and for those away from the house, low on disposable income, and feeling like there's got to be more word getting out about live theatre.

Our hope for this recipe book, besides it earning money for the Valentine Fund is that in its own light and goofy way, it builds relationships. Portland is town of relationships. Karma here is as tangible a currency as the dollar. In a town of relationships, you can make great theatre. And in a town of great theatre you can use that to build great relationships. They just chase each other up the spiral. So try a recipe, read about the contributor, go see shows and enjoy relationships with your co-players in our magical city. Feed on.
