Description: Many the summer visitor has walked into a Maine restaurant only to emerge hours later utterly surprised at the perfection of the experience, the quality and freshness of the regional ingredients, the faultless preparation and service. Little do they know that such destinations are to be found from one end of the state to the other, often tucked away in unlikely places. In this first edition of Fresh From Maine, we have gathered together 20 of the finest, a discovery on every page presented without arbitrary ratings or cumbersome commentary.
Instead, the chefs speak for themselves, through stories and 50+ recipes, with compelling images of their food for seasoning. Want to know the secret of the caramelized onion crust for lamb at Joshua's Restaurant without driving to Wells or learn how the El Camino twins in Brunswick make their corn soup so velvety? How about what Kyle Yarborough of Mache in Bar Harbor dips into for a midnight snack or even which chef moonlights as head referee for the Maine Roller Derby League? The surprises in these pages might even inspire you to travel, whether across the country to visit or to the stove to cook up something Fresh From Maine.
