Our Story

My name is Stephen Joffe, and I will be your host.  I have a great passion for food and for stories.  I love eating delicious food of all types.  I appreciate the art and process of creatively cooking.  Another passion for me is the exploration of a story. The richness from the story can high;right and increase the anticipation and the pleasure.

Each week Food Stories will bring you conversational explorations about restaurants and various food businesses in and around Portland, Maine.  We will interview an owner, founder, chef, baker, brewer, distiller, mixologist, creator of a food business that is part  of the expanding, nationally recognized food movement in the Portland, Maine area.

Where did the name of the business come from?  What was the inspiration and story behind the business creation?  What is the vision that drives the day to day operation and where does it come from?  We will explore these questions and more as we meander and discover part of the story behind each creative food business.

The food diversity that is in Portland is growing and ever changing.  We will explore the stories of old favorites on the scene for years, as well as newcomers bursting into the environment.  Many are nationally recognized already, some by word of mouth throughout the community.
