The Culinary Capital of MaineBook - 2014
"Portland, Maine's culinary cache belies its size. The vibrant food scene boasts more than three hundred restaurants, as well as speciality food businesses, farmers' markets, pop-up dinners and food trucks. Since back-to-the-landers began to arrive in the 1970s, Maine's abundant natural resources have been feeding local dreams of sustainability and resilience. Portland is uniquely primed for chefs and restauranteurs to draw on local agricultural and marine resources. Gulf of Maine fisheries and the working waterfront bring the freshest seafood to Portland's palate, while Maine's rural landscape is fertile ground for local farming. Local food writer Kate McCarty taps into the evolution of this little foodie city" -- Provided by publisher.
