One of our local farms Zephyros Farm hosted a farm dinner yesterday evening. About 125 people attended the event celebrating local foods. Each course was prepared by a top local chef and the menu included the sources for all the ingredients. Ryan Hardy from Montangna @ the Little Nell in Aspen did the appetizer course, Eleni Stelter from Eleni’s Uptown in Paonia did the salad, Dava Parr from Fresh and Wyld in Paonia did the side vegetables, Mark Fischer of 689 and Phat Thai in Carbondale did the main course and Bob Isaacson of Smith Fork Ranch in Crawford did the desserts. Local wines and distilled spirits were available as well.
We were thrilled to provide all the Black Welsh Mutton for the main course.
Today it’s back to the grind of end of summer farm work but last night was a welcome break.
