Big Table lived up to it's name last night



Last night we had a dinner party. It was a pre-harvest dinner party celebrating many of the amazing folks we've worked with and become friends with since we've moved here! Every one brought amazing wines and seemed to really enjoy.

We started with the garden...

we beheaded many broccoli and stole every last tomato for our favorite tomato bread salad. The hens gave us their eggs for the raviolis, ice cream and wild-blackberry tarts.

Our late pigs gave us pancetta that went into a beet and pancetta dish and the main event was a brisket which we smoked all day it was yummy! ... the party went late there was of course cigars, whiskey, many dessert wines and spirits that were touched by those we know and love.

The house was a sight this morning... but the good kind of sight that reminded us what a great night it had been...




Life is good and the dishes are all done! Thanks all who came and we'll do another one soon ...


cheers!

wow, these photos are GORGEOUS! And that big table shot is perfect - you should put that one in the header of this blog!

looks like a great time, and how awesome that the meal came mostly from your very own farm.

i'm drooling just reading about it.
