The New York Times' Julia Moskin has written a long feature on the food scene of Portland, Maine, focusing on the interrelationships between restaurants, chefs, bakeries. markets, farmers and more, which make Portland a type of "food collective" (her words). Rabelais is described as "an all-food bookstore on Middle Street that serves as a hub for food-related gossip, jobs and sometimes heirloom apples and wild chanterelles. (A local forager barters extra mushrooms for new cookbooks.)"
