Farmraiser, round II
Yesterday, Lucy and I took photos for the invitations of the second farmraiser we're helping to organize at Synergy. The first lunch was such a success that now we've been entrusted to cook and plan a dinner for 30 heads.
We've been getting glorious Red Ace beets and Napoli carrots lately, so we decided to feature these veggies in a simple photo on the front of the invite. We wanted the invitation to say "rustic elegance" -- so we kept the veggies whole, dirt and all, but positioned them on Susan's nice white china.
Friday, we've a date to brainstorm menu ideas. We're doing our best to feature in-season farm produce supplemented with local ingredients like goat cheese, pasta and meat, plus a few other staples. Can't wait for the testing to commence...
