Harvest on the Harbor

Thursday, Oct 23, 2008 - Wednesday, Nov 25, 2009

There is no doubt that a small city with a culinary scene as vibrant as Portland's deserves to celebrate its bounty. From the gifts of the nearby sea and farms, to the talented chefs and cooks, Portland has so much to choose from. An impressive display of these riches will be available to all of us during the three-day Harvest on the Harbor, a Maine Culinary Experience.

Rabelais is pleased to be part of Harvest on the Harbor, and is hosting a series of book signings which will take place on Saturday at the Marketplace at Ocean Gateway. Come meet acclaimed chefs and cookbook authors including: James Peterson, The Brass Sisters, Rowan Jacobsen, Kathy Gunst, Kate Gooding, Jean Kerr and others. Here's a schedule of book signings: schedule. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit the official website.
