“You may already have heard about the culinary scene in Rockland, and it is well worth the praise. From farm to table freshness and seafood right off the shore, award winning chefs and creative brewers of all kinds, a chocolatier, a candy maker, and much more, this town has something for every taste bud to enjoy.
And the mid-coast culinary talent goes way back in time. Did you know… that a diner owner in Rockland lays claims to the creation of the first lobster roll? That a former resident of the town invented, not the donut, but the hole in the donut? And, a man known as the “father of coffee breaks” in the early 1800’s hails from Rockland? He got his workers off the “grog” and onto the grounds.
Learn a bit about the history and a whole lot about the current culinary scene on this tour on and off Main Street. We will entertain and educate you while you enjoy the local flavors and talents of the town.
Tastings will fill you up for lunch with a wide variety of favorites in town, such as;
*seafood chowders on the deck overlooking the ocean
*delicious Maine peekytoe crabcakes
*great craft brewed beers with house french fries
*creative dishes featuring Headacre Farm in Owls Head
*italian sausages from a local farmer
*estate wines made from Maine blueberries (and some from grapes too)
*creative chocolates like you’ve never had before and more!
Join us when you can this Summer for a fun-filled, educational, and tasty walk through downtown Rockland! “
