Maine Food at Your Fingertips: Down East Magazine Creates Food App
Live and eat in Maine or just love the state’s rich food culture? The Great Maine Food app, created for the iPad for Down East Magazine helps bring you and great local food together. The new app debuts with recipes, video tutorials, and menu planning for the Maine foodie, the foodie who enjoys a taste of Maine, or the foodie inside that might be aching to come out and, say, try some local steamers.
Maine is known for so many terrific foods, it makes sense creator CulinarMedia would endeavor to put them all in one conveniently tappable place. It’s no surprise that seafood features prominently, or that there is an entire category devoted to lobster. Even mooseburgers make an appearance in the database, along with other more mainstream but delicious recipes. Case in point: Maine blueberry muffins and New England baked beans. The photos are lush, and users can plan and make a shopping list in a flash for their next meal or their next dinner party – they can even use the app to email guests and invite them to the spread!
The app, which sells for $4.99, looks like a shoe-in for visitors and residents alike. It maps places to eat, shop, and stay in four major regions of the state, and word is that it’s great for cooks, seafood lovers, and anyone that spends any time traveling the state. Tie on your bib and give it a spin at Great Maine Food!
