A tasty coastal retreat in mid-coast Maine
Hidden in the small town of Camden, Maine lies a culinary hideaway perfect for a weekend foodie getaway. Chef Michael Salmon ( a former recipient of Caribbean Chef of the Year) and his wife Mary Jo run their inn with a focus on comfortable luxury and gourmet cuisine. Rooms are comfortably appointed with sumptuous linens and french provincial touches but the real star here is Chef Michael's food. Guests of the inn will be treated to a delectable 2 course breakfast featuring seasonal and local ingredients while Mary Jo and Chef Michael help you plan your day around Maine's beautiful mid coast. Be sure to save room for the inns 5 course chef's tasting dinner. Chef Michael marries classic French technique with global influences, each course better than the one before. The standout of the night for me was the butter poached lobster with vanilla buerre blanc, the fragrant sauce a perfect foil for Maine's succulent lobster.
