It's nice to see two Maine B&Bs, The Pomegranate Inn in Portland and Hartstone Inn in Camden, included in a "Top 50 US Bed-and-Breakfasts For Food" slideshow on The Daily Meal.

These roundups don't always get the details quite right: The Pomegranate is now managed by Lark Hotels, so the "cheese blintz souffle with berry coulis" mentioned in the piece — a signature of former inn manager and chef Dana Moos (and included in her cookbook "The Art of Breakfast") — may no longer be on the breakfast menu.

But the "Chef for a Day" option at Hartstone cited by The Daily Meal is indeed available (and has been touted in The Boston Globe and Traditional Home magazine). For $325, you get 4 hours with chef and inn co-owner Michael Salmon, a signed copy of his cookbook, an apron, the day's menu and a food tasting. Dinner and accomodations are extra.
