The Travel Channel has been traveling around Maine the past couple of days, and this afternoon it will make a stop at Academe, the restaurant at the Kennebunk Inn.

From 3 to 4 p.m., the “Food Paradise” show will film chef/owners Brian and Shanna O’Hea making their signature Maine Lobster Pot Pie for a pot pie-themed episode to air sometime in October.

The O’Heas' lobster pot pie has gotten attention from TV land before. Celebrity chef Cat Cora nominated it for an episode of the Food Network Show “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” that focused on “Reinvented Classics.” You can see Brian O’Hea make the lobster pot pie on that show here.

Last year, Shanna O’Hea competed on the “Plenty of Fish” episode of the Food Network’s “Chopped,” but she had to work with lutefisk instead of lobster. Here’s a look at her introduction on the show.

According to a Bangor Daily News blog, Food Paradise visited Dysart’s Restaurant in Bangor Tuesday afternoon to film the truck stop’s pot roast.
