Food, more often than not, has a story. And, while a meal has a history alone just in how it was cooked, that story can expand to include anything from where you ate it or who you shared it with, to whatever it is that very last bite will always remind you of.
With Real Maine Food (available for purchase at COOK!) Ben Conniff and Luke Holden of Luke’s Lobster compiled the stories and recipes they found in Maine, alongside many of their own, to showcase the story of Maine food. With the book out and the summer just ahead, they took the time to stop and share some of the stories and bites with us.
