Summer Camp for Foodies

The Maine Event will be on Penobscot Bay.

If you’re too old for an internship at an organic farm, you can still make your summer vacation about food, for a price. The Maine Event at Salt Water Farm brings the pillars of the Williamsburg restaurant scene — Marlow & Son’s founding chef Caroline Fidanza, butcher Tom Mylan, Egg chef Millicent Souris, and Dennis Spina from the Roebling Tea Room — to a more scenic locale for butchering and blueberry picking. “The week will be a riotous celebration of local food and the art of preserving the bounty of summer,” says Brooklyn Based. (There’s a chicken slaughter, too — prime time for sneaking away to play spin the bottle.) It’s $1,500 per person and $2,500 per couple, which includes meals, booze, cooking supplies, and lodging. But if you’re not feeling so flush right now, Intelligenstia coffee is auctioning a cupping (tasting) for eight and eight pounds of quality beans to benefit the Riverside Park Fund. Bidding starts at $100.
