On Friday, June 8th we proudly hosted the Maine Home+Design Dinner for the Kennebunkport Festival. Maine Home+Design editor Rebecca Falzano and interior and fashion stylist Erin Gates of www.elementsofstyleblog.com joined our guests for an evening of conversation and wonderful food prepared by Chef Dennis Franceschini, Executive Chef-partner of New York City’s Bar Italia. Chef Franceschini, known for conjuring savory multiregional Italian dishes, designed a creative four-course dinner with wine pairings that definitely celebrated the “Art of Dining.”
Proceeds from this dinner benefited Share Our Strength Maine in their efforts to end childhood hunger through nutrition education offerings like Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters™ program. This program teaches families how to cook healthy, affordable meals which in turn helps ensure that no child in Maine goes hungry.
