Her book, Green Plate Special, is a collection of sustainable and delicious recipes served alongside green tips and tricks, which pairs perfectly with Maine Huts & Trails’ mission.
Tickets start at $120 ($108 for members) per person, which includes overnight lodging at Poplar Hut, dinner presentation, breakfast and signed copy of Christine Burns Rudalevige’s cookbook, Green Plate Special.
“We’re happy to help with the cookbook launch,” stated Cayce Frigon, director of communications and marketing for Maine Huts & Trails. “Not only will guests get to experience a cooking demonstration from the book, we’ll also be featuring a few of her recipes at our family-style dinners at each of our huts throughout the summer months.”
Complete with a commercial kitchen, Maine Huts & Trails’ lodges are completely off the grid, providing total escape from everyday stress but with the comforts of home, including features like state-of-the-art composting flush toilets, hot showers and comfortable bunkhouses. Guests are encouraged to explore the area, which is home to hundreds of bird species for birders, secluded fishing spots, and pristine rivers and lakes for paddling canoes or kayaks.
