This live presentation was brilliant, fun, interesting, educating and inspiring. We left the session planning on experimenting with making cheese. The building that the classes are taught is stunning inside and very well designed for cooking classes. Bravo to the folks who put this all together

The Garden Club of Wiscassett has had two events here in the last year - a lecture with speaker and a Tea. Both occasions were expertly handled by the staff which is actually a family affair. The Tea menu was very creative and delicious. It was wonderful and I highly recommend it. Robin Grant

We visited Maine Tasting Center and took the “Pairing Maine Craft Beer & Iconic Foods class. It was fun and educational at the same time! As a life-long Mainer I still learned some things about the Maine craft beer industry. The class was led by a Cicerone and he was assisted by another person (the owner’s mom, as it turns out) who helped prepare and serve the food pairings. The pairings were very good and some quite interesting. Atlantic Brewing Company - Bar Harbor Real Ale (Brown) Ployes Mix - Bouchard Family Farms With Maple Syrup - Hilltop Boilers Oxbow Brewing Company - Luppolo Pilsner Fermented Seaweed Salad - Atlantic Sea Farms Allagash Brewing Company - Allagash White Maine Lobster - Pinkham's (Boothbay Harbor)—in a lobster roll Nonesuch River Brewing - RED Chipotle Smoked Mussels - Coldwater Seafood Dill Crackers - Mill Cove Baking Co. with a seaweed and cream cheese spread Airline Brewing Company - S.O.B (Extra Special Bitter) Soldier Beans in Special Sauce - Bar Harbor Foods Baxter Brewing - Stowaway IPA Whoopie Pie - Hannaford Bakeries (though Wicked Who ones that are pretty easy to find across the state!) My favorite was the Airline Brewing beer and the baked beans. The bitterness of the beer changed noticeably when paired with the beans; it was a neat pairing! Afterwards we were invited to have a full pour of whatever we wanted at the Tasting Center (we had the class in the Learning Center). I had a glass of the Airline Brewing SOB; it was my surprise hit of the day. We paired it with a charcuterie board that was excellent! The class went from 12-2pm. I’d recommend this class and I’m sure those others are just as good!

We were looking for a dog-friendly winery and Maine Tasting Center appeared in our search. It’s not a winery, but actually better! All food and drinks showcase local Maine treats. The outside deck was lovely and they were very accommodating to our dog. But the surprise was how lovely the food and drinks were. We had a beer flight and wine flight — all local Maine choices. I particularly liked the Fogtown seaweed saison, which I probably would not have selected without the recommendation. So good that I bought a 4-pack to go! We had the lobster toast (open face grilled cheese with lobster!) which was delicious and we designed our own charcuterie board from a really large selection. The cheeses were great but the mushroom pate stole the show, it was so good that we also bought some to go. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. While we were enjoying our lunch, Sarah, the manager, made a few calls and gave us a list of dog-friendly wineries and breweries in the area. It was so unexpected and thoughtful. I highly recommend Maine Tasting Center whether you are staying in the area or just passing through.

The foods were great and from the area. Tasted new pairings and new foods - even a new beverage - lavender mead - good!
