St. Mary's 9th Annual Chefs Soirée
Friday, September 12, 2014

Proceeds support the St. Mary's Nutrition Center and its programming.

THANK YOU our 2013 Sponsors!

With inspiration from Chef Paul Landry of Fish Bones American Grill in Lewiston and Chef Kevin Cunningham of The Inn at Brunswick Stationin Brunswick, the Soirée featured outside grilling of local meats and vegetables. Several TV monitors displayed the action outside at the grill and inside in the Nutrition Center's spacious gourmet kitchen so no matter where guests chose to be, they had a birds-eye view of the cooking demonstrations.

Forage Marketof Lewiston created and served hors d'oeuvres which included a variety of freshly made bruschettas. The main course included lamb (provided by the Wrinkle In Thyme Farm in Turner) served on a grilled pizza dough; grilled fennel and Italian sausage from Maurice Bonneau's Sausage Kitchenin Lisbon Falls; and a grilled rabbit entrée marinated in rosemary and garlic from Bubier Family Farms in Greene. The dessert was a melt-in-your-mouth caramel apple tartlet. Susan Hall from The Vault-A Specialty Wine and Craft Beer Shop in Lewiston pared each course with wine. Baxter Beer of Lewiston donated four varieties of craft beers for the evening's festivities.

Proceeds from the evening support the St. Mary's Nutrition Center (NC) and its programming. The NC was founded by St. Mary's Health System in 2006 to promote community health through organizing, advocacy and education. It serves as a hub for healthy food initiatives across Lewiston/Auburn and the Androscoggin County area.

Thank you to last year's sponsors!
