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!
