Postcard from Portland
Hello after a two-day absence! I was in Maine for the weekend. This morning, before heading home to Sag Harbor, I stopped in at one of my favorite spots in Portland, Rabelais Books (86 Middle Street, Portland ME 04101; 207-774-1044). I buy most of my cookbooks locally, so I spent time looking at some of the more esoteric food periodicals not stocked at Bookhampton on Main Street in Sag Harbor (631-725-8425): Gastronomica, Culture: The Word on Cheese, Meatpaper. My favorite (something about its cover just called out to me) was The Diner Journal.
