Bringing Maine’s Heritage Foods to Life by Maine’s Culinary Best!
Join St. Mary’s for our 5th Annual Chefs Soirée: Bringing Maine’s Heritage Foods to Life by Maine’s Culinary Best! The event will be held on November 5, 2010 at 5:30 pm at the Nutrition Center of Maine, 208 Bates Street in Lewiston.
We will enjoy an evening with Chef Scott Johnson, a native of Auburn, who will be preparing the main entrée and coordinating the night’s activities. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Scott was singled out by Esquire magazine as one of the nation’s top five “rising chefs” in 2004. Scott and his colleagues will take us through the history of New England’s heritage foods, their effect on local economies, and the role of agriculture in Maine’s contemporary culinary landscape.
Maine fisherman and lobsterman Proctor Wells, Jim Armaral of Borealis Breads, Mike Thompson of Thompson Orchards, and Robert Bartlett of Bartlett Maine Estate Winery will make the night a truly amazing event showcasing the many agricultural products of Maine!
Guests will take pleasure in wine, watch demonstrations, learn from some of Maine’s best, and enjoy a wonderful meal!
Proceeds will support St. Mary’s Nutrition Center of Maine. Founded on the belief that good health relies upon access to healthy food, the Nutrition Center promotes community health through a variety of programs, including nutrition education, urban gardening, and emergency food distribution.
