South Portland, Maine Now Has Had Recipes from Before the War

South Portland, Maine has a spellbinding past for historians. Historians have marvelled at the offbeat way of like in the “Way Life Should Be” country and have tried to unpack how things came to be.

A handful of badass merchants first established an outpost in South Portland, Maine to feed the growing populations in nearby Waldo, Washington and York counties. The average eating habits of these early people were bargain-priced, if a bit banal. Downeasters relied on items that were relatively painless to acquire.

It is a hefty mistake to overlook this neighborhood. A surge of new ethnic preferences has created competition and forced many fusty restaurants to up their game.
