Okay, yes, I know this is backwards. I realize that I did a post back in October about autumn at Kurtwood Farms, and that it was timely since it was, in fact, autumn. But here it is, late winter, and I am finally getting around to posting some summer photos from my work with Kurtwood Farms.
I do this for two reasons:
First, if you have been following my work with this job, you know that the Sunday Cookhouse Dinners at Kurtwood are wonderful and renowned and yet, in all my excitement about the colors of fall, I forgot to share some images from one of these nights.
Second, aren't you just SO ready for spring right about now??? I know I am and have been since, oh, I don't know....October?! Anyway. These photos are a great pick-me-up because they remind me of what's to come. Like, for example, berries and squash blossoms and warm days with rose wine. And tomatoes. Lots and lots and LOTS of tomatoes.
So, dive in and remember that we don't have too much longer to wait for short sleeves and warm evenings.
(Note: the chef pictured below is the very talented, Morgan, who has since gone back to Portland. These days, the regular chef on the farm is the fantastic, Tyler, from fabulous Spring Hill in my 'hood, West Seattle.)
