About Me

The Blueberry Files: A Portland, Maine Food Blog

Welcome to the Blueberry Files. I'm writing to you from Portland, Maine about what goes on in my kitchen and in restaurants around Maine. I teach food preservation classes for the University of Maine Cooperative Extension for a living. 

I am the author of two books: Portland Food: The Culinary Capital of Maine, published May of 2014 and Distilled in Maine: A History of Libations, Temperance and Craft Spirits, in July 2015.

I am currently the food editor of Maine magazine and the freelance editor of Eater Maine. My writing has appeared in Down East, Edible MaineDispatch,  ZestThe Portland Phoenix, and DigPortland. View my features and column archives. I am a former Maine Foodie Tour guide. 

Just a warning: "I'm not much into health food; I am into champagne."
