Please join us on the sidewalk* outside Longfellow Books for a lunchtime farmers market book signing with the author and photographer of the summer's hottest new cookbook! From 10:30-12:30 Margaret Hathaway and Karl Schatz will be signing copies of their book, leaving you plenty of time to stroll through the farmers market and get all the ingredients you'll need to cook up some of these inspired dishes from the chefs at Portland's most notable restaurants.
About the book:
Maine's cultural and culinary heart, Portland is a buzzing and energetic food community. Widely considered to have one of the country's most vibrant food scenes--named "Restaurant City of the Year" by Bon Appetit--the city offers a diverse culinary landscape, from classic seafood to Oaxacan to Korean to Milanese, and its devotion to farm-to-table cuisine and locally sourced ingredients is undeniable given that the Portland Farmers' Market, the country's oldest continually operating market of its kind, has thrived here for over 200 years. With more than 80 recipes from dozens of the city's most celebrated restaurants, including Drifter's Wife, Rose Foods, and Chaval, and showcasing full-color photos of mouth-watering dishes by James Beard nominated chefs, and lots of local flavor, Portland's dynamic food scene is celebrated in all its gustatorial glory.
