This fall its Visiting Chef Series is highlighting the Great Chefs of Maine.

Each weekend includes opens with a Friday nights cocktail reception with the honored guest. Culinary demonstrations and wine tastings take place on Saturday, followed by a table d’hote menu prepared by the chef, who will circulate and answer questions throughout the dinner. It concludes Sunday with a jazz breakfast.

• Tom Gutow, Castine Inn, Oct. 24-26

• Rob Evans, Hugo’s, Oct. 31-Nov. 2

• Bryan Dame, The Inn at Ocean’s Edge, Nov. 14-16
