Oprah’s “O List” features Lobster White Truffle Pizza from Academe at The Kennebunk Inn
The October 2013 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine, on newsstands now,includes the Lobster White Truffle Pizza created by Chefs Brian and Shanna O’Hea of Academe at The Kennbunk Inn. Oprah’s "O" List highlights “A few things we think are just great!,” according to the magazine.
The magazine described the pizza, saying, “This whole wheat creation arrives topped with Havarti, mozzarella, spinach, roasted tomatoes, white truffle oil, and – best of all – chunks of fresh Maine lobster, packaged separately to ensure maximum succulence. You warm the luscious meat in butter while the pizza’s cooking, then spoon it over the finished pie.”
Academe was featured in Oprah Magazine earlier this year when their signature Lobster Pot Pie was included in the February 2013 issue as one of Gayle King’s favorites.
The O’Heas developed MaineLobsterPotPie.com in 2012 as a way to ship fresh Maine seafood overnight across the United States. On the website, they offer Maine Lobster Pot Pie, Lobster Roll, and Prince Edward Island Mussels kits in addition to the White Truffle Pizzas. The kits include the same recipes used in the restaurant and all the premium lobster meat shipped through the website is fresh, not frozen.
Academe’s Lobster Pot Pie has appeared on Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate,” and Travel Channel’s “Food Paradise” has featured both the Pot Pie and the White Truffle Pizza.
The Kennebunk Inn is located at 45 Main Street in Kennebunk.
Academe, the restaurant of The Kennebunk Inn, is run by Chef-Owners Brian O’Hea and Shanna Katherine Horner O’Hea. The two draw on their culinary and artistic backgrounds to create imaginative and enticing soups, salads, sandwiches, burgers, and entrees served in an informal, brasserie-style setting.
