We are partnering with Josh Gamage of Maine Coast Catering and culinary arts instructor at the Midcoast School of Technology. You are welcome to stop in anytime between 12 and 3. The goal is to help connect more restaurants in the midcoast with local food producers. Growers are encouraged to bring brochures and promotional materials. This first meeting will be a casual gathering so folks have a chance to meet and discuss opportunities face to face. Coffee and tea provided by FF with snacks being pot-luck. Both chefs and growers are invited to bring a small sampling of something yummy. This meeting will also provide an opportunity for Josh to speak about forming a chapter of the American Culinary Federation. The Federation is dedicated to promoting the professional image of American chefs worldwide through education of culinarians at all levels. http://www.acfchefs.org/
