What better place to savor fresh, delicious creations than in a garden? Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens’ Kitchen Garden Dinner Series brings Maine’s finest chefs right into our Kitchen Garden Café to prepare innovative, seasonal multi-course meals. In a society where the consumer buys salad in a bag and any kind of fruit at any time of year, it’s great to be reminded of how good food tastes when it is fresh. The Gardens, through this series, seeks to do its part to remind guests what it means to reap (and eat!) what you sow.

The chefs who create the meals in this popular series also create a memorable dining experience! Please make your reservations early by calling 207-633-4333, ext. 101, or signing up during your next visit. All dinners begin at 6 p.m. in the Kitchen Garden Cafe and include wine, tax, and gratuities; ticket prices are $75 for members, $90 for non-members. Menus may be requested in advance by phone nearer the dates of the dinners.

For upcoming dinners, please see the calendar listings at the top right of our homepage.
