Bar Harbor Catering Company (BHCC) is celebrating 10 years this summer and we're marking the occasion by launching an on-site eatery and tasting room, new website, extended services in the community, and new exterior signage to commemorate our location on Bar Harbor Road. Woohoo!
Whim Kitchen, an occasional eatery and test kitchen, is a new extension of BHCC that allows our chefs and staff to share creative food experiences with the general public in a temporary, pop-up style format. One can expect Whim experiences to be restaurant-style dinners, retail food opportunities, and even tours and demonstrations.
“Whim Kitchen can be thought of as a spontaneous, slightly unpredictable and entertaining alter ego of BHCC,” Owner and Chief Culinary Officer Mandy Fountaine said. “Where our events are carefully curated over months and years, Whim offers our staff the opportunity to share impromptu food experiences with the general public based on what they are excited about at any given moment.”
The first Whim Kitchen event on Friday, April 19th at 6:30 pm, will feature a four-course “Maine by Land” menu, inspired by Maine’s bountiful local early spring offerings with beer pairings in collaboration with Fogtown Brewing. A “Maine by Sea” menu is in the works for Whim’s second installment, which will be announced in the next couple of weeks. To buy tickets to the spring Whim Kitchen dinner, click below. Tickets are $65 and seats are limited.
