Seaweed Week

Special Events

Thurs April 25: Seaweed Week Kick-Off Party


4:30PM - 8PM

Maine Craft Distilling, Portland

Seaweed Week doesn't officially start until tomorrow. But we're getting this 9-day-long celebration of Maine sea greens started early with this launch event!

Get ready for:
* Seaweed cocktails
* Seaweed-based appetizers
* 20-minute guided distillery tours
* Live Irish music by The Kevins

And . . . Mmm . . . What's that smell? Something truly special . . . MCD will start off a batch of their 50 Stone Whiskey by smoking malted grain with peat from Maine’s uplands and seaweed (yep, seaweed!) harvested from our rocky coast. So make sure to wander outside to the large red kiln and check it out.

Thurs May 2: Fyood Kitchen Competition: Maine Seaweed Edition



Fork Food Lab, Portland

Limited to 20 people. Buy tickets here.

Looking for new ways to play with your food? We provide the kitchen, we provide the food, we do the dishes. All you need to bring is your A-game!

Fyood Kitchen is a fun, friendly cooking competition, where we give you 4 mystery ingredients to create a dish with. And to celebrate Seaweed Week, there just might be some Maine seaweed in there somewhere (Shhh).

Dishes will be scored by our judges on taste, presentation and creativity. Contestants will typically take part in an entree round and a dessert round, after each they'll get to try the other cooks' dishes and share their own.
