Salt Water Farm offers its guests the opportunity to create local, seasonal fare, while overlooking Maine’s Penobscot Bay.
Salt Water Farm offers cooking classes, as well as three-day workshops. All of our classes are hands-on and take advantage of our seaside vegetable and herb garden. We emphasize resourcefulness in the kitchen and teach how to cook instinctually, with less of a dependency on recipes, and a readiness to use the day’s harvest. We also instill confidence in our students, so that they can feed a table of 12 with grace and precision.
Our classes range from handmade pasta, to pies from scratch, to bread baking, to pickles and preserves, to braising on the bone. Our workshops are an intensive program that covers what we deem the essential and fundamental skills in any kitchen. All of our classes end in a communal feast around our farmhouse table. The cooking classes also feature guest chefs from across Europe and all over the United States.
