Welcome to episode #63 

Rabelais Inc. in Biddeford, Maine, serves up fine books about food and drink. The store has one of the largest selections of rare and out-of-print cookbooks in the U.S., along with a significant collection of manuscripts, menus, product cookbooks, prints, photographs, and other ephemera, all expressions of the important role food holds in culture.

Rabelais Inc. opened in 2006 when Samantha Hoyt Lindgren and Don Lindgren created the original shop on Portland’s Middle Street in Maine. Encouraged by the openness and energy of the small city’s chefs and food producers and excited by their proximity to amazing ingredients from land and sea, Samantha and Don sketched a business plan on a napkin over lunch and launched Rabelais.
