An evening to celebrate The New Portland, Maine, Chef’s Table: Extraordinary Recipes from the Coast of Maine
Twenty percent of all pre-orders and sales during this event will benefit Maine-based non-profit, FULL PLATES FULL POTENTIAL (fullplates.org) whose mission is to end child hunger
A fantastic collaboration between author Margaret Hathaway, photographer Karl Schatz and the great chefs of Portland, this beautiful cookbook gathers Portland’s best chefs and restaurants under one roof, featuring recipes for the home cook from some of the city’s most celebrated restaurants and showcasing full-color photos of mouth-watering dishes, award-winning chefs, and lots of local flavor. Maine’s cultural and culinary heart, Portland is a buzzing and energetic food community. Widely considered to have one of the country’s most vibrant food scenes—named “Restaurant City of the Year” by Bon Appetit—the city offers a diverse culinary landscape, from classic seafood to Oaxacan to Korean to Milanese, and its devotion to farm-to-table cuisine and locally sourced ingredients is undeniable given that the Portland Farmers’ Market, the country’s oldest continually operating market of its kind, has thrived here for over 200 years. With more than 80 recipes from dozens of the city’s most celebrated restaurants, including Drifter’s Wife, Rose Foods, and Chaval, and showcasing full-color photos of mouth-watering dishes by James Beard nominated chefs, and lots of local flavor, Portland’s dynamic food scene is celebrated in all its gustatorial glory.
This will be a casual evening event with short speeches from the authors, as well as representatives from Full Plates Full Potential. Light refreshments, taken from the book, will be provided.
