Mumbai to Maine: A Culinary Adventure!

Welcome to Mumbai to Maine: A Culinary Adventure! I'm Cherie Scott, creator and founder of Mumbai to Maine – a culinary blog and food podcast. When I left Mumbai 24 years ago, I never imagined that one day Maine would be my home. I knew I had to find a portal to somehow share my passion for Indian cuisine and tie it to my deep love for Maine’s rich and dynamic food scene. I created this podcast to bring you some of Maine’s most captivating, thought-provoking and inspiring food stories. So join me as I take you on a culinary journey with Maine’s formidable taste-makers, entrepreneurs and innovators with this Bicentennial Food Series, sponsored by Eat Maine.
