Photos of the Feast – The First Springwater Farm Dinner

A magical Feast can only exist when the beauty of the food is matched by the beauty of the people involved in bringing it forth.  I am so very thankful for the extraordinary people who grew, gathered, and raised this food, to the talent that I had at my side in the kitchen, and to the elegant, thoughtful maitre d’, providing the link between the kitchen, the food, and the diners.  I am grateful for the lovely group that gathered to partake in the Feast, and thrilled to hear of their delight in the evening.
Cheers to the first Springwater Farm Dinner!
