Best story on Bourdain’s Maine tour I’ve seen yet is in today’s Bangor News. It details his visit to a baked bean suppah in Milo, hometown of his cameraman/cinematographer.
“‘I’ve had beans, I’ve had baked beans and pork and beans, but these are some pretty damn good beans,” Bourdain said. “It’s the first time I’ve been to a bean supper, I can tell you.”
Of Maine in general, Bourdain said the first thing that struck him was until he arrived in Milo, he had yet to meet a single person who was actually from Maine. “Portland, Rockland, everyone we met was a displaced person from someplace else,” he said.
