How’s this for a delicious evening to benefit a good cause: Five of Maine’s top chefs each will prepare a course to complement Australian wines at this year’s Wine Challenge and Auction to benefit the Portland Symphony Orchestra. Even at $150 pp, the March 30 event at Freeport’s Harraseeket Inn is sure to be a sell out.

Participating chefs are: Jonathan Cartwright, executive chef at the White Barn Inn, Kennebunkport; Steve Corry, proprietor & executive chef, at Five Fifty-Five, Portland; Mitchell Kaldrovich, executive chef, at the Inn By the Sea, Cape Elizabeth; Gallit Sammon, chef de cuisine at the Harraseeket Inn; and Melody Wolfertz, proprietor & executive chef at In Good Company, in Rockland. They’ll be matching their foods to Peter Lehmann Wines from the Hess Fine Wine Estates.

The evening begins with a silent auction, during which wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. A live auction and dessert follows the main event. Items on the block in both auctions include getaways—including a tour of Australian wine country, event tickets, dining, gifts, accommodations, services, jewelry, and other gifts donated by Maine artists and businesses.
