Chinese Hot Pot

Join us on Friday September 29 for the second annual hot pot dinner to celebrate the harvest full moon. The meal features food from local farmers cooked at your table. The chefs are Chris Toy amd Jeff Mao, but you get to do the cooking yourself in a Chinese Hot Pot. Chris Toy and his friend Jeff Mao will prepare meat and vegetable broth and dipping sauces and an array of fresh local ingedients including meat, seafood, vegetables, and noodles.

The Full Moon Dinners at the Bath Freight Shed have featured farm-to-table dining since we began them in 2013. They are a fund raiser for Maine’s First Ship, but also a chance for you to meet old friends and make new friends, while overlooking Maine’s First Ship Virginia as the moon rises over her on the Kennebec River.

The meal can be vegetarian by cooking in vegetable soup base and only cooking vegetables. However, since the hot pots are shared, we would like to know in advance who will want to eat vegetarian. Please indicate this while purchasing tickets, or send a note to mfs@mfship.org.We can accomodate other dietary restrictions with advanced notice.
