Photos from Last Night at the Craftsman

Wow, wow, wow! Thanks so much to everyone who came our the the Craftsman last night for one of the funnest nights I can remember.

The crowd, more than 70 strong, included friends from IATP, the Birchwood Cafe, Heartland Food Network (Annalisa and her gorgeous baby!), Equal Exchange/Fair Food Fight, Peace Coffee, Tastebud Catering, Lucia's, Good Life Catering, the Produce Exchange, Brasa, Renewing the Countryside, Heavy Table, City Pages, the Salty Tart, Mississippi Market, the Wedge, and a bunch of other places that we know and love. The food, charcuterie and cheese provided by Executive Chef Mike Phillips, was phenomenal. The drinks, which included beet cosmos, were delicious. The staff at the Craftsman was, as always, terrific.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures, taken by Kate Sommers. You can see more of Kate's terrific work on her blog Fork, Knife and Spoon. (I'll let you know when the rest of the photos from last night are up, too.) Enjoy!

Executive Chef Mike Phillips:


I am sooooo disappointed I didn't go! My only consolation is that the semester is almost over, but your Craftsman event would've been such a blast. What an incredible opportunity to meet such great people. I look forward to reading and seeing more photos about it!

What a great time! Thanks so much for setting this up, Lee. The food was amazing and it was good to see some familiar faces and meet new ones.

Thanks for a great night of food! It was so tasty - Mike Philips is a charcuterie genius. I really enjoyed the Stormy Night drink. If anyone goes to the Craftsman in the near future, get this drink if it is available. Delicious!

Thanks Tracey, sorry we missed you last night - hope we can make up for it soon.

Kris and Jessica, thank you so much for being there last night and writing nice things. It was really great ot have you. Jessica, that nocino is fantastic!

Sob, sob, looks so fabulous, I wanted to be there!!!

But on the bright side, we were able to register our son for kindergarten ;).

Hi Jennifer - glad your son is all set! Still, I think you can eat local AND get a good education. :-) Hope to see you soon.
