They even featured a bunch of my photography in the segment! Please check our Specials section for more information on the event. Tickets will likely sell out.  

Key LimeRock Pie at LimeRock Inn

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

Way back in June, we spent a few days with some travel writers that came to Rockland as part of Historic Inns of Rockland FAM tour.  I heard the term FAM tour before, but always wondered what it meant.  FAM is abbreviated for familiarization.  Now, the light comes on in my head.

Anyway, the Tandem Tasters are part of the International Food, Wine and Travel Writers Association.  Maralyn and Brenda stopped by one afternoon to watch me make Key LimeRock Pie.  We had a lot of fun, and they seemed to enjoy the tasting part too.

Historic Inns of Rockland are hosting the 6th annual Pies on Parade in January 2010.  If it sounds yummy to you too, think about coming to Rockland next January for a taste.

Frank on TV….again!

Monday, January 12th, 2009

Today, Frank went down to Portland to do a cooking segment taping for the WCSH6 show “207″. It’s a daily news magazine that focuses on all things Maine. Frank has been on before demonstrating how to make gingerbread houses and was invited down again to demonstrate how to make his Key LimeRock Pie. The segment will also help promote this years Pies on Parade event that takes place on the 25th.

On on interesting side note, while Frank was on the way down to Portland, he got a call from the local NBC news reporter for some quotes on the Cruise Ship industry here in Rockland. Frank is the chamber cruise committee chairman and he was featured in a story on this evening’s news. Since Frank was already in the Portland news station, they just interviewed him there. Leave it to Frank!
