One of the hottest tickets in Maine is the subject of a new book. I have to admit that I came across this because I am a full fledged PBS nerd, and I regularly watch the PBS News Hour with Judy Woodruff, so I was intrigued when I saw a piece they produced on the red hot restaurant, The Lost Kitchen, in Freedom, Maine.
