Visiting Portland Maine include a stop at the Standard Baking Company. Quite a place! Beautiful baked treats, delicious aromas, and well, just plain fun! It is located at 75 Commercial Street across from Portland Harbor.


A good friend told our traveling group about her love for Sarah Leah Chase and her cookbooks. You can follow Ms. Chase on Facebook at www.facebook.com/sarahleahchase/

That’s where my friend learned of the Standard Baking Company and the outstanding breads and pastries to be found there. Our group can vouch for the extraordinary flavor and multiple textures found in the items they sell. We bought scones, croissants, cranberry walnut bread, rosemary focaccia and more. Buttery crusts, full flavors and pull- apart goodness characterized the products we bought and ate. Yummm!


Sarah Leah Chase’s most recent cookbook is titled New England Open-House Cookbook: 300 Recipes Inspired by the Bounty of New England. This is the latest in a long line of much-loved cookbooks by Ms. Chase going back to her early work on The Silver Palate Cookbook.

The parade of Maine treats continues!
