Harvest on the Harbor 2010, Portland Maine food event
Before my trip to Florida I was fortunate to meet the design director of Portland Magazine who suggested I check out the Harvest on the Harbor and try to get in as press (for StC.) I took his advice and contacted them. Luckily I was able to get a press pass for the Seafood Splash on Thursday. This event is a mix of seafood main courses, dessert (gelato yum!) and appetizers. Even a soup or two.
The Seafood Splash was a phenomenal tasting event. Some of what we got to taste included: seafood jambalaya by Cabot Creamery (amazing! One of my favorites!), two different lobster soups, an amazing lobster sandwich from the Brass Compass Cafe, sushi, taquitos with grilled Atlantic Salmon (by *far* my favorite!), kelp, and even gelato from Gelato Fiasco. Steamed muscles, wine, live music … ahhhh!! Definitely one of my favorite days in all of 2010!
It’s hard to even decide what to post for photos! I think they came out great and I’m definitely going to post way too many. Sorry about that! Thanks to the organizers, Angie Helton for helping me get into the event, Bob from Portland Magazine for giving me the idea to go and all the chefs who prepared these great foods! I hope to see you all again soon!
