This airy kitchen in Brewer will one of six featured on the Eastern Maine Medical Center Auxiliary Kitchen tour set for Oct. 5 in Bangor, Brewer and Hermon. Remodeled this past winter the kitchen sports ivory-toned cabinets, countertops of golden granite imported from China and handmade tiles designed by the homeowners David and Dianne Gauvin. A special touch is a section of butcher block countertop used by Frank Soucy, Dianne’s father, who used it for many years at Frank’s Bakery, the family business.

Food, fun and fabulous kitchens will be featured noon-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, on the Eastern Maine Medical Center Auxiliary ninth annual Kitchen Tour. The tour will includes a mix of six interesting and unique kitchens — two in Brewer, two in Bangor and two in Hermon.

Tour participants will be treated to food and beverages along the way compliments of Cupcakes Etc., Darling’s Ice Cream for a Cause, The Maine Cookie Kitchen, Oats Any Time, Savage and Sons Coffee, and Specialty Sweets.
