Cherie Scott is a bright spot in Maine’s food scene. Her love of food and passion for home cooking is inspired by her two homes: Mumbai, India and Boothbay, Maine. The result is a culinary blend that manages to be both deeply rooted and expansive. Her blog, Mumbai to Maine highlights family recipes and gives us a glimpse into her home kitchen where she cooks alongside her kids and husband. The blog also features her latest venture: Maine’s Bicentennial Food Podcast. Each podcast episode is an interview with a chef, entrepreneur or scientist telling their Maine food adventure. We are thrilled that John (co-owner of our shop) will be on the podcast soon as well!

Our introduction to Cherie came in the form of a gift. A few years back Cherie’s husband gave her our Indian Curries four pack set. Little did we know this would be the start of a lasting friendship and mutual admiration. Together we’ve hosted private cooking events. Cherie has contributed to our Recipe Box and provided feedback on our Indian blends and never fails to shout us out in her social media content and cooking features. Her seal of approval means a great deal to us and we’re so appreciative of her endless support of SKORDO.


Here are a few of our favorite Mumbai to Maine recipes, features and podcast episodes. If you aren’t already following Cherie @mumbai2maine on Instagram, get on it!
