part two of the Feast in the Field dinner for Mountain Roots in Crested Butte. Cassie Pence was the organizer for this superb event and she is the board president for Mountain Roots.
Cassie bringing Kalon some much needed refreshment.
hors d’oeuvres passed to the guests
Many wonderful sponsors. This is our favorite pick-your-own-fruit/farm store/restaurant just outside of Paonia, Delicious Orchards. The owner, Jeff Schwartz, is from whom we buy the buckets of raw apple cider vinegar for the cows.
My very favorite farmer, Mark Waltermire with Thistle Whistle Farm, who laboriously plants, harvests and brings the most glorious heirloom vegetables, tomatoes, herbs, peppers… to our local farmers market every week. I buy cases from him each year to preserve and dry, and he is a joy and wealth of information. Kalon serves Mark’s bounty in his restaurant.
The final part three, with pictures of Kalon’s actual dinner creations, will hopefully be posted in the next couple of days.
