Maine Restaurant Week Will Feature Cocktail and Dish Pairing EventMaine Restaurant Week is an annual celebration of food & drink that takes place early every March, and is a fabulous excuse to “get out of Dodge” and enjoy the growing warmth of the sun, by the sea here!  It runs from March 1 – 12, and some ticket sales are limited, so don’t wait too long to commit or your options may be limited.

The festivities open on February 28th with “Spirit Quest,” @ 2PM on Sunday in Old Port, with a walk including combinations of delicious “bites” and cocktails through some of the finest restaurants in Portland.  The list of participating establishments is growing, but already includes such notables as David’s, TIQA, 555 and Liquid Riot!  Looks like $40/ participant to us.

The list of participating restaurants is growing, as we speak, but will include some of the most amazing restaurants in the State of Maine, offering 3 course dinners for $25, $35, $45 or $55, + special MRW lunches for only $15!  For sure our favorite, the Azure Cafe in Freeport will be participating.  Some special MRW menus are already online, with more appearing daily, as more restaurants sign up.

Hey, on Sunday, March 13th, @ 2PM the “Coffee & Desert Pairing Event” is to be held in Portland.  This sounds like a hot one to a boy with a very serious sweet tooth!!  “Coffee by Design’s” roastery team is creating their best brews to go with bite sized tastes of the most incredible desert entrees from the likes of Dean’s Sweets, Two Fat Cats, Love Cupcakes and Scratch.  More are signing up every day too!  Tix are $35 and to sweeten the deal, this is benefit supporting the fine work of Preble Street (homeless shelter).

At Brewster House, we have the breakfast gig well covered, with your 3 course gourmet breakfast, and fresh ground coffee prepared in a french press, and home baked cookies and cakes for your afternoon delight!  There are no more comfortable beds and linens, nor more commodious baths on the coast of Maine!and let’s not forget the fireplaces…..  Make you reservation today.  As a note, we will be away from 2/19 until 3/1, but our “Spring Serenity Special” kicks in on that date, meaning we offer 3 night stays for the price of 2 nights.  See our Spring Serenity package for details!


Flavors of Freeport (6th Annual) Food Festival

January 8, 2013 by Kelleigh Dulany

If you enjoy visiting Maine, especially Freeport, and if you love food (and who doesn’t??), you’ll look forward to coming to Freeport in February for the 6th Annual Flavors of Freeport festival.

In the past the Flavors of Freeport festival has featured the Chef’s Signature Series on Friday night, and this year is no different in that respect. The Chef’s Signature Series will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., with the venue continuing to be the Freeport Hilton Garden Inn.

Enjoy the flavors from Freeport’s finest chefs and top food artisans, as they present tastes of their best dishes to showcase their culinary skill and style.  Attendees vote on their favorite display and “flavor” and are also entered to win fabulous door prizes!  Will award winning executive chef Christopher Bassett of Azure Cafe take first place again this year?  You be the judge!

In addition, Maine beverage purveyors provide the opportunity to sample local hand crafted beer, wine and spirits.

As in the past, there will be a silent art auction featuring pieces from the Freeport Art & Music Festival during the event to benefit the Freeport Community Services Food Pantry.

During the evening, accompanying the Chef’s Signature Series on Friday (also 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.) will be an Ice Bar. The ice bar will feature a martini luge,  ice sculptures, roaring fires to cozy up to, music with other wonderful beverages to sample.

Bundle up in your warmest winter wear and enjoy a night of festivities outside in February with family and friends. One ticket to the ice bar gains the holder (21 years and older) entrance and one beverage – additional beverage tickets can be purchased on site.
