“We are extremely honored and humbled to be recognized by Catersource and their ACE achievement award,” said Mandy Fountaine, BHCC Owner & Executive Chef. “This is like the Oscars for caterers and planners! We're so fortunate to do what we do in the beautiful state of Maine, in partnership with a long list of incredible clients and vendors. To be able to represent Maine hospitality and its amazing food scene on a national level is an honor and a true testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team.”

We realize it’s only January, but we’re already immersed in summer planning and really loving what’s coming up this year. There are some new trends to be on the lookout for (balloon walls!) and a few not so new ones we hope stick around (all the candles!), and as we begin a new season, we can’t help but think back to some of the standout events from the previous one. We worked a little over 200 events last summer, which adds up to A LOT of wonderfully unique moments. Creative event themes were a big deal last year, and one that stands out as an overall favorite was an epic birthday bash, Viking style.
As huge fans of the TV show The Vikings, our clients wanted to transform their yard into a scene from the hit show, complete with animal pelts, skulls, and lots and lots of fire. They thoroughly enjoy hosting a good party, so needless to say, the bar was set high and we were more than up for the challenge. We delivered the dinner party of their dreams and had a blast doing it.

October is a well-loved month here at BHCC, and to toast the cooler temps and amazing foliage, we decided to make some of our famous sausages and doughnuts for you all to enjoy!
For approximately $20, you can get five links (roughly 1.5 pounds) of our house-made apple and fennel, cheddarwurst, or Maine blueberry and maple pork sausage, as well as four of Baker Kate’s apple cider doughnuts. Or, if you’re more hungry for sausage, you can just get sausage. Or, if you’re all about the fall-themed doughnuts, just get the doughnuts. We won’t judge!
