Peaks Island, Maine -- April 22, 2014 -- Summer is finally around the corner, and Maine Lobsterbake Co. (http://www.cascobaylobsterbake.com/) is readying for a season full of festive lobsterbakes. In anticipation of wedding parties, birthday celebrations, family gathering and other special events, owner Courtney MacIsaac has expanded her menu to include not only Maine's finest lobster, clams, scrumptious sides and desserts but also an array of appetizers that reflect the growing cultural influences in Maine.
"There are so many more ethnicities in the state than just a decade ago," said MacIsaac. "I wanted to recognize that as we plan lobsterbake events for locals and people from away," she explained. "I think food is a great way to dip your toe into cultural waters, and I'm excited to introduce guests to some new and delicious dishes from around the world...all right here in Maine."
In addition to her interest in Maine's broadening cultural base, MacIsaac has a commitment to its precious resources and environment, and she is striving to be a completely sustainable business. In fact, produce comes from local farms, and all food waste is either composted and plowed back into the soil or used to feed Peak's Island pigs. In addition, the company uses sugarcane and corn products for our dinnerware, which are completely compostable.
"Maine is a very special place, and it's important to me to help it stay beautiful and sustainable," said MacIsaac.
Maine Lobsterbake Co. has earned a regional reputation for flawless events that can be hosted at a variety of venues around the region. MacIsaac designed her own "bring along" steamer so that it can accommodate up to 550 lobsters at the same time, ensuing that food is served to guests hot and fresh. In addition, MacIsaac works with local lobstermen to source the freshest product available and serves them up with Maine Lobsterbake Co.'s award-winning New England clam chowder , marinated mussels Provencal and Maine steamer clams along with sides such as native corn on the cob, coleslaw and tomato cucumber dill salad. MacIsaac puts the finishing touches on every meal with her famous fresh strawberry shortcake and Peaks Island blueberry cake.
MacIsaac is available for party planning immediately and is ready to host a first lobsterbake on May 1. The season continues through November 1. Those interested in a lobsterbake can reach her at
