July 18, 2012 Today’s Portland Press Herald has a nice review of Fresh From Maine, 2nd Edition, by Meredith Goad featuring:
Bar Lola, Petite Jacqueline, and Oxford House Inn here http://www.pressherald.com/life/foodanddining/cookbook-corner_2012-07-18...with further mention of wider geographical reach and wider cooking styles.
Goad reviewed Drinking In Maine in her blogpost here http://www.pressherald.com/blogs/mainealacarte/162789566.html featuring Sweetgrass Farm, Brian Hill and Francine Bistro, Hugo’s Basil Gimlet, Trattoria Athena’s Bluezo made with Wyman’s blueberry juice, and Bartlett's Spirit of Maine Old Fashioned with the recipe below.
And don’t miss Drinking in Maine: 50 Cocktails, Concoctions and Drinks From Our Best Artisanal Producers and Restaurants. These same restaurants and chefs have spawned a bevy of liquid alchemists who have dared to help themselves to the chefs’ larder.
Blueberry Martini and Hot Buttered Apple Cider, Back Porch Lemonade and Cilantro Stinger, a mead and elderflower Summer Sunset, a Gin Pepino--new takes on old standards, old standards with a local twist, these are just a few of the marvels Maine's barkeeps have created in these pages to keep you Drinking In Maine. Come raise a glass!
