Shaker-inspired, Elder Hall, celebrates the spirit and bounty of the region through communal gatherings centered around the table. We offer a warm and engaging environment to host your gathering, meeting or celebration. Our space is a resource to the Portland creative community and can be reserved for photo shoots, brainstorms, and much more. We also host a series of educational events and classes that range from Creator and Kitchen Workshops, Small Suppers and Food Book Fete’s. Every event is curated in the spirit and pursuit of collaboration and connection with our local community.
It’s warming up outside and we are fired up about all the good things the weather brings! Book Fete is back and we’re honored to welcome chef and cooking school founder Annemarie Ahearn to Elder Hall.
Annemarie founded Salt Water Farm Cooking School in Lincolnville, Maine in 2009. In just a short time, the farm drew guests from far and wide while being featured The New York Times, Bon Appetit, Food and Wine and other publications. The easy nature of Annemarie’s instruction, along with the beauty of Maine’s landscape and the bounty of local farms and fisheries, inspire so many to think of entertaining at home in a whole new way. In her new cookbook, Full Moon Suppers at Salt Water Farm, Annemarie provides a month-by-month guide to how she creates thoughtful, seasonal, beautifully prepared meals for a crowd. Her full moon suppers are a big draw and showcases how anyone can host a memorable dinner with simplicity and grace.Register Now
