Portland Maine is a vibrant harbor town with a creative spirit and a gritty, working class past. Access to some of the freshest seafood on the East Coast( including Maine’s succulent lobster) and scores of small scale farms and artisan food producers has attracted a new wave of forward-thinking chefs eager to showcase some of Maine’s best culinary offerings. Recently named the “Foodiest small town in America” by none other than Bon Appetit magazine I knew I had to sample some of Portland’s goodies for myself but I was only stopping in the city for one day. Maine Foodie Tours to the rescue!
The independent spirit that exists in historic Alexandria, Virginia has inspired some of the nation’s top chefs and food purveyors. Strolling down the cobblestone streets I found myself tempted by the charming cafes and creative restaurants housed among 18th and 19th century architecture. Whether your looking for revolutionary dining or a meal rooted in tradition your taste buds are sure to be happy in Alexandria.
Wandering through the cobblestone streets of Prague‘s Old Town you catch a whiff of something comfortingly familiar yet enticingly different. Navigating the medieval labyrinth of the Staré Město in search of its source, the sweet nutty aroma an irresistible olfactory temptation. A tube shaped sign above the shop points to its singular ware and signals that you have found what you’re looking for.
