For those of us who are serious about good food, this is terrific news. Since 1986 Ed Behr has produced one of America's best food periodicals, and certainly the best for people concerned with issues of taste. I have no doubt he and the great list of judges will bring the same level of discriminating attention to this new prize, 'The Art of Eating Best Food Book of the Year'.

Fresh Arrivals #39.
Yikes, it's cold in Maine this winter season, which means it's good weather for cataloging all of the new books we've received. So we're back to a regular schedule of the short lists we call Fresh Arrivals, and in early February we'll be shipping out another print catalogue. If you missed it, ...

Story
At Rabelais you can find thousands of books on food and wine, from comfortable old favorites to haute cuisine, from Southern fried chicken to molecular gastronomy. Whether you are a member of the profession and cook for a living, or a serious armchair epicure who cooks for dinner, we have inspiration for you. Rabelais also serves those inclined towards thirst. We have books on first growth wines and home beer brewing, cocktail culture and saloon society. 

Please note that our hours are seasonal and that during much of the year we are open by appointment or chance.
