Guy Hernandez returns to Waldoboro, direct from his restaurant Lolita in Portland, ME. He was trained as an architect, studying architectural design and structural engineering at Princeton University and receiving his Masters of Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis. After moving to Maine in 2001, he learned artisan baking with Josh Potocki and Allison Reid. In 2006 he and his wife, Stella, opened Bar Lola on Munjoy Hill, just two blocks from their home. In 2014, with their business partner, Neil Reiter, they opened their current project, lolita:vinoteca+asador, just across the street.
Guy has received no formal culinary training. He sees learning opportunities in all situations and fed his curiosity with a constantly changing menu of carefully crafted and composed dishes at Bar Lola. At lolita, those experiences are incorporated into new challenges and opportunities with restaurant’s focus on wood fire cooking, a deep and varied wine list, and flavors from the entire Mediterranean region. There, Guy continues to makes a point of buying from people he knows directly and creating dishes that he sees as complete not when nothing else can be added to them, but instead when nothing else can be taken away.
Menu: Lolita is known for their wood fired grill cooking and this menu will be built around Maine raised lamb and Mediterranean flavors cooked over wood and coals. Full menu will be released closer to the supper.
Farmhouse Table Suppers at East Forty Farm are held under the grape arbor or in the 1774 Farmhouse, depending on the weather. We dine together at one long table, with many dishes served family style. We view these suppers as a way to make a connection with our food system by meeting the chefs, growers or producers. Each evening begins with a tour of the farm that begins at 5:30 and as we progress through the summer, you will see how we manage the livestock and land and be able to observe the transformation the changes of season brings.
Supper cost: $75 per person, BYOB. Limited to 20 guests. Please indicate food allergies at the time of reservation.
Time: Talk and tour 5:30. Supper 6:00 – 8:00
Location: East Forty Farm and Dairy, 2361 Friendship Road (Route 220 South), Waldoboro ME 04572
