Today's post is a little different from the norm! A few weeks ago I was honored when The Boathouse at Sunday Park asked me to photograph an event they were hosting for Dinner in the Field. I had never heard of Dinner in the Field but a little quick reading and I was intrigued! This past year I've done a lot of reading, watching, and learning about food. It's become more and more important to me to choose food that is organic and if I can, food that is local. This luxurious dinner experience combines those values with delicious cooking, complementary wines, and a community experience.
I adored the long, rustic table that everyone ate at. This wasn't one big group of people who knew each other. But you wouldn't have guessed that watching them. Everyone was laughing and talking like they were all friends. It's that "sharing a meal together" magic that we so often take for granted.
Personally, I think this would be a great gift idea for someone you care about :) or just a special experience to treat yourself! Here's a little VISUAL taste of what you'll experience... but trust me, the risotto is better.
