Dumas shares expertise on Maine’s Bicentennial Food Podcast

Rob Dumas, University of Maine food science innovation coordinator and manager of the Dr. Matthew Highlands Pilot Plant, was a guest on Maine’s Bicentennial Food Podcast. Cherie Scott, founder of the culinary blog “Mumbai to Maine,” hosts the podcast that dives into the state’s food story — past, present and future. It showcases creative and accomplished culinary taste-makers, food innovators and entrepreneurs. The project is a celebration of Maine’s 200th birthday. Dumas told Scott that many Maine farmers look to grow foods for flavor and be stewards of land. And tourists come to Maine to learn farmers’ stories through the dining experience. Other scheduled guests include Luke Holden, founder of Luke’s Lobster; Leigh Kellis, founder of Holy Donut; and Alison Pray and Matt James, co-founders of Standard Baking Co.
