Winter Comfort Food

by Jane and Michael Stern

MAINE: Indian Pudding

Any devotee of comfort food has got to love Cole Farms, a mid-20th-century Maine eatery east of Sebago Lake that makes four kinds of pudding every day. Foremost among them is Indian pudding, the Colonial-era samp that is a mixture of molasses and cornmeal baked until it becomes weighty and dark. Trust us, this is no frivolous dessert. It must be served warm and it demands ice cream on top. The rest of the menu is a full roster of belly-warming dishes such as fish chowder, chicken pot pie, and Yankee boiled dinner. Twenty miles north of Portland and far off the tourist route, it is a big place favored by locals and staffed by their kids: a real country diner.
