Margaret Hathaway and Karl Schatz, authors of The New Portland, Maine Chef’s Table will be signing copies of their book and serving bites from the book’s recipes from 4-7pm on Friday, October 18 at our downtown Portland location.





Margaret Hathaway and Karl Schatz are the husband and wife team behind five books on food and farming, including the memoir The Year of the Goat, the guide Living With Goats, and the two volumes of the Portland, Maine Chef’s Table. Margaret is a writer who has worked in book publishing, corporate communications, and as manager of New York’s Magnolia Bakery. Karl is a photographer who has worked as an editor at Time, Inc., and as director of Aurora Photos.


Since 2005, the couple has lived with their daughters on Ten Apple Farm, a homestead in southern Maine, where they raise dairy goats, tend a large garden and small orchard, make cheese, teach workshops, and operate a guest house. We’ve enjoyed getting to know Margaret and Karl and know you will too!




Enjoy nibbles from the cookbook prepared by Margaret using SKORDO ingredients. Please join us for an evening of delicious eats, nice folks and local food celebration.
