Savoring Maine Calendar

South Portland photographer Stacey Cramp has published a 2009 calendar called Savoring Maine. Each month features one of Cramps beautiful photos and a recipe from a Maine “food expert”. Jay Villani from Local 188 provided the parsnip and leek tortilla recipe for March and Abby Harmon from Caiola’s contributed the apple salad recipe for the month of October. The calendar on sale at Rabelais Books on Middle Street.

Woodpile Photo Contest

Matt’s Wood Roasted Organic Coffee in Pownal is running a photography competition. To enter you need to send in a photo of your woodpile by midnight November 15—no that’s not a typo, it’s really a woodpile photo comptetion. According to Matt’s site, the photos will be judged on “image composition and creativity, the skill and industriousness of the stacker, our own whim and state of indigestion, and the like.” The winner gets a free supply of Matt’s coffee beans. Complete rules and instructions are available on the Matt’s website.
