Portland Restaurant Guide

The ocean, the fishing industry, and background including the Puritans and Native Americans all work together to make New England cuisine distinctive. Stewing and baking are prominent in food preparation, and seafood and dairy products are highly popular! You'll find johnny cakes, clam bakes, chowders, and oyster dishes, which reflect the Native American influence on New England cooking. Potatoes are grown here, and are also a staple. If you love blueberry pie, you'll probably think you're in heaven, as this is Maine's "official state dessert!" New Englanders love their home-made ice cream, too, and have a fondness for "whoopie pies," once called "hucklebucks." which are concocted from two small round cakes of chocolate, pumpkin, or gingerbread with a frosting center. Have fun on this culinary adventure!
