Down East Cooking School

Join Sharon Joyce, trainer, educator and chef for a fun and informative culinary workshop where you’ll learn the history and lore,as well as facts and techniques of some traditional Maine dishes. Joyce studied advanced French cooking and pastry at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. In the 1980’s she opened and operated catering businesses and cooking schools in Chicago and the Virgin Islands teaching French, American and Cruzan cuisine. She became fascinated by Maine fare and the abundance of local foods when she moved to Bar Harbor 25 years ago.


There’s both a morning and afternoon class, choose the one that suits you best. In the morning class, you’ll be focused on a traditional chowder and light fluffy popovers, while the afternoon session will explore succulent lobster and fresh blueberries. Joyce shows you how to prepare fresh lobster and more importantly the technique of how to disassemble and consume this delicious crustacean. She offers an easy to follow program that will inspire you to try these recipes at home.


Note: Walking is on paved surfaces, a distance of one block on foot to the school with 4 steps.
