There are more than a few reasons to visit Portland, Maine: the Old Port waterfront, the Western Promenade with stunning river and mountain views, the West End, a neighborhood of Victorian-era homes, including the Victoria Mansion museum.
And then, there’s Dean’s Sweets, our Top Pick Of The Week.
Dean Bingham started making chocolate as a hobby, and friends and family said what many artisan food makers hear: “These are so good. You should start a business.” Dean’s Sweets was born.
Dean and his wife Kristin went from making truffles in their home kitchen in 2004 to operating a 1,200-square-foot professional kitchen and two retail stores in Portland.
Fans across the country know that more than 30 varieties of truffles, caramels, and buttercreams are only a few clicks away.
