Food & Wine aimed to represent the diversity of American baking by including various types of bakeries, regardless of size, ensuring they contribute significantly to their regional food heritage and communities.

So, which bakery in Maine was chosen as one of the best in the country?

Food & Wine selected ‘Night Moves Bread + Pie’ in South Portland as one of the top 100 best bakeries in America. The publication had the following to say:

Can a loaf of sourdough have terroir, just like wine? If yes, Kerry Hanney's would be Maine in bread form — one of the region's most forward-thinking bakers leans heavily on local grains and mills them herself. There are a whole lot of bread people out there nowadays, ready to bend your ear about this stuff; the follow-through here is impressive. PS: We didn't talk about the pie. (There's pie.)
