Find out just how much of a foodie city Portland is on a Maine Food for Thought Tour

“The Maine food system has an incredibly rich narrative,” thanks to its fishing grounds and farmlands, says Bryce Hach of Falmouth, who cofounded Maine Food for Thought Tours with his wife, Sarah. Their tours, launched in June, aim to tell the story about Maine’s bounty of food, its origin, its journey, and the societal and environmental factors behind it. Admittedly, that sounds as dry as cornmeal, but it’s really not. On a recent three-hour tour guided by Bryce Hach, we enjoyed the mix of food facts, chef meet-and-greets, and tasty eats, sampled at six of the city’s most interesting restaurants.
