Cas Dowden is a restaurant-trained chef with twelve years of experience under the tutelage of Bar Harbor chefs Lenny DeMuro (Poor Boy’s Gourmet) and George Demas (George’s Restaurant). Growing up in Chicago and living for extended periods in New York City and San Francisco have had a great influence on Cas' cooking style, obvious in the hints of worldly flavors that come through in her dishes. Always reading food magazines and new cookbooks, Cas believes that it is important to follow the latest cooking trends to keep menus creative and exciting. She pays particular attention to the sophisticated palates of people in the Mount Desert Island area, who are used to having many options for fine cuisine. Cas has been busy over the past four years catering large and small functions and preparing in-home meals as a personal chef. She would love to cater your next special event, whether it is a seafood buffet for 300 guests or birthday picnic for two.
