Characteristically Caribbean, the Cuban table features tropical fruits, root vegetables, fish and small game prepared with influences from Spanish, African, Chinese and French cuisine. The culinary traditions of Cuba are a delight to be savored, so let your palate travel to the Caribbean with us! The class includes wine, hors d’oeuvres, and a specially crafted tasting menu created by Chef Lani Stiles and the team at Megunticook Market, as well as sensory evaluations and aroma identifications. As always, seats for this pairing are limited so early reservations are recommended.
In this class, we will discuss the fishing industry along the Maine Coast, the availability of fish varieties native to the area, how to select fish at your local fish store, correct filleting and shucking methods and various ways to prepare fish at home. Dishes may include finnan haddie fritters, halibut cooked in butter with peas parsley and chives, rope grown mussels with tomato, saffron, lovage and cream and oysters on the half shell baked with bacon, herbs and breadcrumbs. Class is at the Salt Water Farm, 15 minute drive from the Camden Windward House Bed and Breakfast.
In this class, we will discuss how to gracefully prepare a four course meal for a table full of hungry guests. We will discuss shopping, timing, execution and presentation.

Dishes may include Jonah crab salad on toasts, English pea and lettuce soup, baby spinach, arugula and shaved asparagus with chopped farm egg and bacon, braised lamb ragout with rigatoni, fava beans and mint and cornmeal biscuits with rhubarb jam and June strawberries.
