just back from a culinary weekend in Portland, ME and what a lovely time we had. Dinner at Fore Street, Vignola, but the best of the best had to be Duck Fat - a hole in the wall cafe operated by the owners of Hugo. Their specialty is Belgian fries, or potatoes fried in duck fat. We tried the truffle ketchup and duck gravy for dipping - out of this world. Also don't miss the toast with jam - thick slices of brioche slathered with mascarpone cheese and fig jam and then sandwiched and pressed on a grill. delicious! I spoke with the manager who mentioned they might be looking to open one in boston - i can only hope!
